When a Flash animation is embedded into a page without the mime-type the <embed> tag attributes or <object> parameters are lost. I've track down this issue as only affecting ports that uses the PluginDatabase object, which means all of them EXCEPT Mac, Chromium and EFL.

The problem I see is that MIME-Type are not resolved using the PluginDatabase which result into some fallback that recreates the element when the type is finally found. I currently have a fix that make sure extensions are resolved with the plugin database before going into the fallback. I still need to write a test before sending it.

This issue breaks transparency of Flash animation on certain pages like this one:
