Descrición

When the flash add-on button in address bar is clicked while visiting websites with flash content (see Flash add-on button in address bar.png), a pop up message like:-

Allow www.android.com to run "Flash"? Learn More...

Appears. Upon clicking the "Learn More..." link, an incomplete page is opened both in IceCat and Abrowser. (see Screenshot from Abrowser.png and Screenshot from IceCat.png)

Please update the respective web pages, mentioning how flash content is managed by the web browser.

The page on the mozilla web site is at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins?as=u&utm_source=inproduct.
It's actually under CC-BY-SA, so it can be directly copied/modified and put on the Trisquel Wiki. Is documentation under other (free) licenses allowed on the wiki?
