If Firefox is repetitively annoying you to install missing plugins with an infobar on top, you can easily disable it. If Firefox founds you’ve not installed plugins that required content to be displayed on sites, then it displays a message on top of page as “Additional plugins are required to display all media on this page and prompts you to “install missing plugins”.
