Bug Description

Lernid crashed when it visited a page including Adobe Flash. See lp: #968759. This happens reliably, but only on old i386 processors not implementing SSE2. See also closed bug LP: #749848.

Lernid now uses webkit. Webkit is being developed to run plugins in a separate process, but until that is ready lernid needs to defend itself from this generic situation by disabling plugins. IMHO, plugins shouldn't be important for presenting material to ubuntu irc classes.

See also http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/WebKit2 for webkit plans.
