Just to clarify, the third-to-last paragraph should read like this:

Both ClickToFlash and the Flash plugin register for the
"application/x-shockwave-flash" MIME type, but ClickToFlash takes precedence
over the stock Flash plugin __since it's a WebKit plugin__ and loads Flash
content into its views.  However, due to this possible WebKit bug, WebKit
__seems to report__ different MIME type associations for the Flash plugin when
you simply move __the ClickToFlash plugin__ to the location inside the user's
home folder, and therefore causes the CNN video website to only work when the
__ClickToFlash__ plug-in is installed in the global plug-ins folder.
