Thanks for this update to your problem.

Now that you mention, ISTR having had this problem once, or read about
it, and yours is a good solution. The dependency of flash-plugin is
mentioned in distributions that support it, just searched for <<curl
fedora "flash plugin">>, and obtained, e.g., for Fedora, CentOS, et al:

Mine is in pt_BR, so, I am translating. Controls for each plugin,
including flash:

Addons -> Plugins, then you have the plugins, and for most, three
choices: always activate, never activate, ask to activate.

But I use OpenJDK, choose 'always activate", and control with noscript

BTW, in thunderbird, I prefer to choose "never activate for all of them,
sometimes had to reconfigure, after a plugin was updated.
