Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubufox

Ubufox should prompt for Firefox restart after installation of Adobe flash plugin.
Currently Ubufox doesn't prompt for it, so newbie users won't know that the flash works until they restart Firefox.

i think thats right; especially when not installing through ubufox we should ask for restart. (from within ubufox its supposed to work without restart, but i think that feature somehow is broken in firefox atm - have to check).

anyway; flashplugin-nonfree package can touch the firefox required file (as done by firefox postinst) to trigger that restart notification.

Isn't this a problem with the plugin installation process in Firefox, rather than with the plugin itself?

Is there anything happening with this issue? Does anyone have any ideas?

No, nothing is happening because requesting a restart after a plugin install is unnecessary. All that is required is to refresh the plugin list, which can happen without restarting
