If Flash not installed on Firefox 1.5 on Mac OS X, Firefox doesn't know missing plugin should be flash

Description

If Flash is not installed, and you navigate to a page using Dojo Storage on Mac OS X 10.4.8, the browser correctly says that you need a missing plugin at the top of the page. If you click on this button to install the plugin, a dialog appears inside of Firefox. The dialog says that the plugin needed is an unknown plugin -- is there a way to have Firefox know that we want to install Flash and automatically know this here? There is a button next to this that says Manually Install, which when pressed takes you to the Adobe web page to install the plugin, so this isn't a killer issue, but if we could have Firefox know it's Flash it would reduce things by one step.

This is an old bug that doesn't apply anymore. I entered it during development so I wouldn't lose track of it but it is invalid now.
