Does Firefox support Shockwave flash add-ons in its android version. If not, then when the same will be made available ?

Posted

On android tablet, I need to visit certain websites which require Shockwave flash plug-in to receive web contents created in Adobe Doctor. So, when the same will be made available for your Firefox android version ?

Sorry, Firefox for Android is not compatible with the Flash plugin. We hope to support Flash in a future version, but we don't yet know when that will be ready.

The pre-release version of Firefox on the Aurora channel supports Flash on Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices. (Support for Flash on Android 3 and Android 4 devices is coming in a later release.)

This is a brand new version of Firefox for Android that has many features re-written from scratch. Some things are not working yet. For some details, see this blog post.
