Mozilla turning on click-to-play for Silverlight

Silverlight usage is falling month over month (http://w3techs.com/technologies/details/cp-silverlight/all/all  This means users are less likely to have it installed (or up to date).   By asking users to install Comcast is increasing potential vulnerabilities for its customers, especially cause very few other website use it!
