We intend to unset the pref for Asynchronous Plugin Rendering in Firefox 
49.0.2 in 32 bit Windows. However, we intend to keep it enabled in 64 
bit Windows.

Bug Id: 1312528
System add-on: asyncrendering at mozilla.org, version 2
Committed to Moz-Release: Not yet
Verification: We seem to have verified that shipping Async Plugin 
Rendering causes problems. This can be seen in Bug 1309037 and Comments 
41-57 on Bug 1307108. As for justification for keeping it enabled in 
Win64, I understand that disabling this feature causes serious 
regressions in Win64 (See Descriptions in Bug 1307108 and Bug 1312528).
Other areas of impact: Should not impact anything outside of Flash
Proposed date to go live: I do not have a particular date in mind. Since 
this is causing problems for users on release, I would assume that we 
want to deploy this as soon as possible.
Relnote suggested wording: (I don't know what this means, sorry)
