Since you want to dictate when I can use Adobe Flash I am switching to Chrome? Comments

Posted

This complaint is in regard to your arbitrary blocking of Adobe Flash Player for Windows XP & Vista. Both OS systems still work effectively on older PC's. My old HP DC5100SSF runs at 3.0 ghz faster than many duo core pc's. Adobe discontinued any Flash update for XP and Vista as well as Google Chrome. Chrome still plays all Adobe Flash and You Tube content without complaint. You are forcing me to go to Google Chrome. If they change I will go to Linux.

Mozilla products are great but not accommodating the older users is not acceptable. DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

Mozilla still supports Firefox on WindowsXP and Flash is available for WinXP, too. Although downloading any version of Firefox beyond 44.0.1 may be a problem for both WinXP and Vista users; but they are available from the FTP server. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-no-longer-works-some-versions-windows-xp

As far as Google Chrome and WInXP goes, support for WinXP ended back in April 2016. No longer an option for WinXP. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/04/chrome-50-ends-support-for-windows-xp-os-x-10-6-other-old-versions/

Opera still supports WinXP. http://www.opera.com/blogs/news/2016/04/chrome-alternative-opera-for-windows-xp-vista/

edit: Opera dropped support in the following month
