Bug Description

I load a site which requires a plugin to be viewed. I get the message about plugin requested but no link to the plugin itself.
See attached screen shot.

Hello
That message is part of the browser that is taken as is and packaged for Ubuntu. we have two options, one is review the code make it pointing to our repos and the second is to support and ship gnash by default.
Considering this I confirm this issue.
