You might go to the Add-Ons list inside Firefox and select the Flash plugin. In the lower right hand part of each plugin entry there is a button which is actually a drop down list. It may offer up to 3 options: (1) Always ask before enabling , (2) Always enable, (3) Never enable
With respect to outdated Flash plugins I would not be amazed if you had to live with the confirmation dialogues. Every new Firefox version is increasingly suspicious of outdated plugins. The reason is pretty trivial, but makes sense: Older Java plugins and older Flash plugins have got security holes for which exploits exist in the wild. Quite a few computers have been infected with malware of different kind by exploiting such vulnerabilities. And even though Linux Mint cannot run (malicious) Windows executables out of the box, it can run unwanted software that only needs the browser to execute.
