Subject: No UI

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: mozilla-plugin-vlc
Version: 0.8.6.a.debian-6
Severity: normal

VLC's plugin for Mozilla has absolutely no UI except for the view of the
video, which makes it exceptionnaly irritating. When a page contains an
embedded video, there's absolutely no way to stop it, either you bear it
or you close the page.

   This is irritating indeed, but upstream is working on it.

   In the meantime you can still use the usual shortcuts (space for
pause, for instance).
