Is there a way to turn on Flash for all websites instead of individually?

I've cut the cable and now use my computer to stream content to my television. My problem (annoyance, really) is that every time I link into a website, I've got to enable Flash player in order for the content to play. Is there a way to blanket turn it on for all sites instead of each one individually? It's especially annoying when I have to enable it for the same page over and over again, though not with every page. Any advice appreciated.

That setting is about protected mode for the Flash plugin and has nothing to do with the permission.

The Shockwave Flash plugin has a setting in its plugin window (about:addons -> Plugins -> Shockwave Flash plugin) to "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" that is enabled by default.

Hi, yes but is turned off like that for protection from hacking and being used by drive by sites and malware. It will also not be made after 2020.

Un-check protected mode. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/adobe-flash-protected-mode-firefox

This article says it doesn't apply to 64-bit version, which is what I'm on. I should have mentioned that.

HI, it is more or less the same. Please Copy/Paste about:addons to the Address Bar and Enter.

Click Always Ask to Activate and Change it.

So, I activated (first time I've ever been able to do so) and it seems to work fine. With all the anti-virus, ad-blocker, etc. software I'm running, I'm not terribly worried about getting dinged. Especially as I don't visit sketchy sites. I was just tired of having to allow Flash on every XfinityStream page or a few other individual pages. If it would remember the page, I'd be okay. But every day I watch the same show on the same page and I'd have to click to allow it. And, I don't cleanse my cookies daily. Anyway, it seems fine now. Thanks.
