It's not just Firefox that has a problem with flash. I don't think you can blame Mozilla for that.

I know! I'm not blaming Mozilla for that..However, I can "blame" them for this:

...Thankfully, I already turned off that feature first thing......Guess a fix will come up then..Looks like all browsers do this...

Seems that the new tab feature is not "exactly a bug"...

If you permit Firefox to retain cached information from day to day in this form, anyone with even momentary access to your browser in the future can hit Ctrl-T or Command-T, and may immediately get a look at personal information you wouldn't expect to have been be preserved.
Clearing your browser history, cache et al. should keep you safe...This is "old" news for most of us (I guess) since I've set firefox not to store any sessions, cookies, cache etc..etc...

I set Firefox to "Never remember History".

That setting makes the new tab situation non problematic.

I've run across a problem with new Firefox that I never realized has existed for a while.

Some of us want to remember some history, but not all of it. I know that many of you like to delete history upon exit, but I like to keep about a week's worth or so at a time.

There is no longer any setting in FF to limit or set the number of days of history to remember like there is in IE.

Does anyone know of an extension or a way to edit the about:config to adjust the number of days of history to remember?
