 Mozilla's team reviewed and discussed our patch for #10280.

 First, after new GMP (https://wiki.mozilla.org/GeckoMediaPlugins), patch
 with ESR-38 could be wrong/invalid/incomplete/broken.

 Second, they don't want new UI elements for about:addons (Plugins). Do we
 need this UI elements? Isn't Torbutton's menu (Security settings) should
 be enough to allow or disallow plugins?
 Our FAQ https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en#TBBFlash says nothing
 about steps to allow Flash neither?

 In general, we could to simplify patch a lot using all comments from
 review, or discuss about race conditions that simplify could lead to.
