I thought this was the case from a while back.
In 2017, Firefox will require click-to-activate approval from users before a website activates the Flash plugin for any content.

Flash, flawed as it was, filled a need on the early web.

Fortunately far better solutions have been created since then. I will have no problem saying goodbye to Flash!

Meanwhile, the ability to re-enable Flash is very easy, hidden, but easy. :)
