keeps asking for plugin

Bug #209153 reported by Stevko on 2008-03-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
liferea (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: liferea

When browsing through feed that (in the articles) contains flash file, liferea opens a window saying "This page contains information of a type (application/x-shockwave-flash) that can only be viewed with the appropriate Plug-in." I tried to switch this asking in about:config (open article in liferea internal browser, change url to about:config, click "I'll be careful, I promise!" and change "plugin.default_plugin_disabled" to true). It disabled the annoying dialog, but after restarting liferea it is back. I think that this setting should be saved when liferea is closed.
I am using hardy version of liferea (1.4.14-0ubuntu2).
