While Automating Websites through Selenium, FireFox(Version:60) is blocking Flash Objects automatically. How to stop firefox from doing that?.
While Automating Websites through Selenium, FireFox Quantum browser is blocking Flash objects , hence Driver is not able to click on the Flash object element.
Note: I had set manually "Always Activate" option in Adobe Shockwave Flash player, but still when scripts are running through selenium, Firefox is disabling the Flash buttons.
Please provide me with the solution asap.
Thanks in Advance.
Additional System Details
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 18.11.20036

- Shockwave Flash 29.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Hi, can you provide a URL please.
Are you saying that it deactivates the block icon in the address bar to allow and any other block icon on the object ?
Firefox disables shockwave flash plugin option to "Never Active" and "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" option is selected while running scripts through selenium webdriver. Because of it, unable to click on Flash objects.
I have tried below options but didn't work for me.
Tried manually setting shockwave flash plugin option to "Always Activate" and deselected "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" option. Used below code in configuration file. profile.setPreference("dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.libflashplayer.so","true"); profile.setPreference("plugin.state.flash", 2);
Please find screenshot of the Flash object ,

If this is about local files (file: protocol) then check this pref on the about:config page.
plugins.http_https_only was set to True and plugins.flashBlock.enabled was set to False by default .
I tried changing all the possible combinations of *plugins.http_https_only and
- plugins.flashBlock.enabled, still when my script is running, Shockwave Flash is set to "Never Activate" in Firefox quantum browser(Version:60.0) but same issue is not noticed in older versions of FireFox broswer(version:46)
When both prefs are set to false and the Shockwave Flash plugin is set to always activate then there is not much that can be done if it is still not working.
- plugins.http_https_only = false
- plugins.flashBlock.enabled = false
- plugin.state.flash = 2
I tried the solution provided by you, but it din't work for me.
Anyways i appreciate your help.
