Submission + - Firefox to introduce click-to-play option to protect against dangerous plugins (sophos.com)

chuckfirment writes: For those of us familiar with NoScript, blocking unwanted content is nothing new. However, this upcoming Firefox change may bring added security to the masses.

From the article: "Jared Wein of Mozilla blogged last month about a new feature he was developing for Firefox 14 called "click-to-play". The idea is to block the default loading of plugins like Java and Flash when surfing to reduce the memory footprint and provide protection against exploitation of plugin vulnerabilities."
