Description

Background

Chrome 38-40 mistakenly identified requests loading <object> elements like Flash, and requests initiated by those third-party plugins, with the type other instead object.

We worked around that issue, by pretending that every request of the type other is actually of the type object on Chrome 38 and higher as implemented by #1372 and #1593. However, the Chrome bug responsible got recently fixed, and that workaround isn't needed anymore on Chrome 41 and above.

What to change

Limit workaround for Chrome bug 410382 to the affected versions (i.e. Chrome 38-40), relying again on the webRequest API to distinguish the request types other and object.
