Enabling Flash for iPhone on Firefox

Posted

I’ve been trying to figure out how to enable Flash on Firefox. I play a game on Facebook that uses Flash (I have been using the Puffin browser that has Flash built in for iPhone, but come October, it’s shutting down) and there is now get a message stating that we need to enable Flash if we use any other browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari, etc.). There’s supposed to be a pop-up to allow Flash, but I don’t get that and then it states if the pop-up doesn’t appear, to see the guide. The guide states to manually enable it and to enable it, I need to click on the “lock” icon in the address bar, but when I do, it just gives a page to correct the link in the address bar. Everywhere I’ve read states that Firefox is a browser that has Flash and can be used with iPhone and I’ve even seen directions on how to enable it, but it states to go to the Menu button (the 3 horizontal lines), select “More”, then “Settings”, except there is no “More” listed after I click on the Menu. Can anyone help me out with this or is Flash just not able to work with iPhones AT ALL? Thank you in advance for any help you can give, Christy

Flash is dead. Luckily, Flash was never officially supported in iOS. Puffin has been the only workaround to use Flash. Also, Mozilla will disable the Adobe Flash plugin by default in September release Firefox 69.

I'm sorry to tell you, Facebook Flash game needs to be rewritten.
