Trying to update my adobe flash in Modzilla but window 10 keeps directing me to use edge. I've keep getting a lost connection message then an edge tutorial shows up. Want to use modzilla, not a fan of edge. Any help?

The green screen is an old problem with the Flash plugin. As a workaround, you can disable the plugin from using hardware acceleration:

On a site with Flash, right-click the media and choose Settings, then the first mini-tab and uncheck the box to use hardware acceleration.

Thanks for the advice but when I right click on a site with flash I don't get an option for settings. I get save page, select all, view page source, etc.

The Flash Player is installed on your system and not in Firefox like a Extension or complete Theme is.

Download the NPAPI version and not the ActiveX version. Make sure Firefox is completely closed first before trying to install Flash Player.
