Re: Mozilla will automatically disable all plug-ins in Firefox It's about damn time. Opera's had this--though not by default--forever.

Opera's added such a button to the address bar (in either 11 or 12.x), actually. Shows up whenever unloaded plugin content is on a page. I never use it, as it turns on ALL plugin content, rather than just the one you click on.

Opera has On-demand Plugin with placeholder. The plugin does not load unless you click the placeholder. Both the on-demand and the placeholder are optional, but they work.
