No youtube flash player in FF43 again? Come on Mozilla.

Posted

Everything was fixed in the FF42, you could play youtube videos using fast and smooth Flash Player, after FF43 update there's HTML5 player only again. Am I the only one? Do I need to downgrade again?

I have to use "youtube flash enforce" addons to play flash in youtube - it will never do it without such addons. It has been like that for the past ~6 months for me, if not even longer.

Try changing what addon you are using to force flash on youtube, perhaps the one you got is currently bugged.

I have FF42 right now and youtube uses flash to play videos without any addons. I think I'll downgrade further back to FF39.0.3 because it worked smoother for me (i upgraded to FF42 this week).

It's set but that's not the problem - it's also locked, I cannot change it. The same situation happed on FF40, FF42 fixed it and now it's locked again on FF43.
