Firefox blocks "Adobe Flash" plugin on Bamboo startpage

We are running Bamboo build 51213 together with JIRA and Bitbucket on our server. While Bitbucket and JIRA show no issues Firefox reports a warning that the "Adobe Flash" plugin has been stopped and must be manually confirmed. To my knowledge the Adobe Flash plugin should not be used for anything vital - what do I need to disable to get rid of that warning or the Flash plugin ?

Browser Versions are Firefox ESR 45.x or latest Firefox builds:

Bamboo uses small Flash movie to provide functionality of copying commit revision to clipboard by mouse click. If you don't use this functionality, you can disable Adobe Flash in your browser

Is Atlassian going to address this issue? (by adding an admin setting to disable flash..)

An option in Bamboo to disable that functionality would be the best option. We have advised our users to ignore that warning now because we need Flash for some legacy applications and cannot uninstall the browser plugin for now.


@Marian Simpetru, we don't have such plans.
