Is it possible to prevent Firefox from using the HTML5 Player as seen in the first image posted below? I would rather use the Flash Player as would be seen in use, below in the second image attachment, but it's no longer used on YouTube.

How can I use Flash Player by default when I visit YouTube, and can this be done without add-ons or extensions?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/get-community-support states "You will need to register on Mozilla Support before you can ask the question." but that sentence has no link to the registration page. It is only after stumbling around for a while that I managed to land on the registration page (starting with the "Ask a question" button at the main page top).

If you just click sign-in, you are on a page prompting for a user name and password, with no possibility of creating an account.

Hi,

I'm testing automatic updates (especially for non-admin accounts). I downloaded an older version of FF (v31!) and installed.

I have set lockedPrefs

lockPref("app.update.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.auto", true); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); // Turn notifications of updates OFF. lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.silent", true); // Silent Update lockPref("app.update.interval", 60); lockPref("app.update.promptWaitTime", 60); lockPref("app.update.download.backgroundinterval", 0); lockPref("app.update.log", true);


Updates don't seem to apply, and I don't know where the log file is to check what the issue may be.

Can someone assist?
