This is especially important e.g. for a system administrator in a large organization, especially if the latest Java version is going to be blocked. Currently it is possible to fully disable the blocklist, but this is too extreme! It needs to be possible to fully whitelist individual plugins.

This is already possible for system administrators using the 
click-to-play manager addon: 
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/click-to-play-manager/

For individual users, the primary UI for whitelisting is the 
click-to-play UI itself, so no additional manager should be necessary.
