Description (last modified by arma)

I'm using this as the new catch-all ticket for letting users somehow use Flash with Tor.

Currently we're working on three directions in parallel:

A) Wrap the Adobe Flash plugin in policies so it can't harm us too much (#7008)

B) Support Mozilla's plans to integrate a Javascript flash thingie into Firefox (#7500)

C) Put the entire browser, Flash, and related stuff in a VM that can't talk to the outside world unsafely (#7681)

Have you thought about encouraging Win users to use a sandboxing solution instead of running a VM? I can see how users nit already running VMs could find the whole process cumbersome. My personal favorite is Sandboxie. Thoughts?
