Flash player local content not allowed in latest version of Firefox.

Posted

The latest version of Firefox is not allowing flash player to store local content on computer? Every time I open a page on WGT.com, it asks to store local content. Tried going to global settings and adding, but it will not let me add any websites. I rolled Firefox back to the previous version and it works fine.

Thanks

Ooh. I see in BugZilla that Flash will not be supported by default for FireFox 69.

Adobe Flash/Shockwave going away? What's out there to replace it? There are plenty of sites using Flash.

From Adobe, Feb 12th, 2019...

New Flash Update (32.0.0.142): https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer

Announcements:
Mac NPAPI Sandbox - Mozilla Firefox
The Mac NPAPI Flash sandbox is enabled by default on Firefox 62 and later.

Disabling the sandbox requires using about:config to set...

dom.ipc.plugins.sandbox-level.flash to 0

...and then restarting the browser. The sandbox is known to prevent the following features from working:

  • Print to PDF from the Flash print dialog
  • Print to “Open in Preview” from the Flash print dialog
  • Quicklook in the File->Open dialog
  • Saving files to the filesystem from a Flash applet
  • Flash applets downloading and running the Adobe Air installer
  • Flash triggering Adobe Air applications to run

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Plugins/Roadmap

Shockwave Flash is the old name for Flash Player. The Shockwave (for director) Player is a different Plugin from Adobe and not allowed to run (along with other NPAPI Plugins) in Firefox since the Fx 52.0 Release.

Many sites have changed to or have HTML5 players in use for video/audio and yes even games.
