Firefox 40 does not allow Flash Shockwave player to work any longer?

Posted

Just upgraded to Firefox 40, it doesn't allow me to view any Flash Shockwave based sites or plugins, anywhere on the net.

I've installed Shockwave player. All other browser work fine.

41 seems to be working fine. 39 works fine as well.

Do not confuse the Shockwave for Director plugin and the Shockwave Flash plugin, both are different plugins.
