just started this morning and it is annoying to the max. every site i go to has flash on it somewhere. i use linux. flash has no new update for linux. this is not my browsers decision to make. please tell me how to unblock the adobe flash addon permanently and then how to tell FF to stop checking this for me. my linux handles all my updates as needed including those for my browser. i don't need or want FF to second guess my settings or my chosen security level.

I solved it. Proceed at your own risk

Open new Tab Navigate to about:config Accept security warning Change extensions.blocklist.enabled to false Restart browser This prevents firefox from checking the blocklist you have configured at extensions.blocklist.detailsURL
