I'm talking from experience - I work for Mozilla and was partly in charge of the block. Unless you're using a Firefox version older than 3.5, you should see a checkbox next to the plugin name in that window you just mentioned. Unchecking it should prevent the plugin from being disabled.

Instead of Mozilla just fucking DISABLING it, how about adding a huge blinky warning to it?

"Oh, wow. I should upgrade as soon as I get the opportunity." vs "Fuck, it broke!"

That is almost exactly what we did. You get a warning with the option to ignore it and continuing like nothing happened.
