I have the latest version of Firefox running under Win 10. There is no option to allow adobe flash to run on some websites like many faq's imply. I am prompted everytime I go to the vector vest url for the daily color guard report. This problem for me started a month or more ago. How do I set firefox to stop prompting me to allow adobe flash to run permanently.

hi macciofe, the flash plugin is about to be sunset by adobe and all browser vendors within the coming months - not allowing it to run by default anymore is one of the steps in the transition away from it: https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Plugins/Roadmap

it would be best to contact the webmaster of the site, make them aware of this fact and ask them to start transitioning away from flash content. there are plenty of options available to provide a native html5 video experience without the need for a plugin...

Hello macciofe,

Would you please take a look at this bug report :

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

I have been pleading to create a preference on the "about:config" page that would force-enable Flash when it's value is set to true, but to no avail ....

However, you can now enable Flash per session (you'll have to keep that session open though).
