I am just a home owner and I use the web for answers to how to do things. I often go to You tube for how to do things I am seeking answers to. I do not play games on my computer. I use Facebook and Yahoo. I am using windows 7 pro, 64 bit. service pack 1. I understand adobe will not be supporting flash after 2020. That is fine with me. I am happy to allow html to step in and take its place. I don;t know any reason I have adobe flash, but I have updated it every time my glarys utility, notified me it found an update for it. I would be happy to remove flash from the computer, if doing so, will not disrupt my use of my computer.

SO, why won't flash update and always wants me to get admin. approval? Why does flash not see that I am signed in as admin? Can I uninstall flash from my computer and do with out it, and not run into hiccups?

Latest reason why the "don't let Flash run automatically" decision was a FAIL

Once again, we have a new release (74.0). Once again, the developers who believe themselves to be gods do not think users should be allowed to set Firefox to allow Flash on specific sites without asking EVERY SESSION, somehow believing that inconveniencing the users is somehow going to force website admins to move away from Flash before the announced deprecation at the END of the year.

Now one of my daily-visited sites (the one for Daily Jumble) will not wait for me to enable Flash, and when I do enable it I then have to refresh the page to make it work. It is obvious that if what I have been asking for all along -- being able to tell Firefox to enable Flash always FOR THIS SITE ONLY -- would alleviate the problem, but since the gods cannot see through the eyes of the users, I am now further inconvenienced by their decision.

I maintain that they moved too quickly and too drastically to implement this change, and I have no reason to believe posting this will make any difference, but I again want them to know that instead of Firefox being the most user-friendly browser in the world (as it USED to be) it now has enough user-UNfriendliness to be as despised as Internet Explorer was.

I do not believe it to be an unreasonable request to allow this, because they could simply put that functionality in, then take it out along with all Flash support in the first release of 2021. But they think they know better. Sorry, guys, but you DO NOT.

I have Firefox 73.0.1 ((64 bit) and am running the latest version of FLASH as an add-on.

Lately, when using FLASH within FF, sometimes the screen goes white, sometimes it goes black. I cannot seem to figure out what to do and how to restart FLASH or get back to where I was. Also, I cannot figure out how to get the DISPLAY settings for FLASH This has recently started about 2 weeks ago. I have no other problems with FF

Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I don't want to have to activate adobe flash each time I need to use it but cannot find the option to keep it active in the add on's menu. It's very inconvenient that it has been removed. It should be the Users choice if they wish to take the risk. Is there a work around for this other than a different browser please?

I'm running Manjaro linux XFCE 64bit. I have the latest version of Firefox installed from the Manjaro repositories (69.0.3-1). The flashplugin is also installed from the Manjaro repositories and is the latest version (32.0.0.270-1). In my plugin settings, Flash is set to ask to activate, and I've even tried turning off the "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" setting. Most websites that need Flash don't recognize that it is installed at all.

When I use Adobe's tools to check if Flash is installed, (https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html) this page doesn't show the ask to activate plugin in the URL bar until after I click on "Check Now" so their tool shows that I do not have Flash installed or enabled. If I click allow Flash on this page and then refresh the page, it seems like Flash gets disabled for that website again, and clicking "Check Now" once again shows that Flash is not installed or enabled.

Another page to check if it is installed is (https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/) which I found from downloading the flash plugin directly from Adobe in a readme.txt file. This page shows the Ask to activate directly on the Flash content, and when I click Allow, it recognizes that I have version 32.0.0.270 installed.

Most websites with Flash content that I want to use just don't show the Ask to activate prompt and show that I need to install Flash with the link to download from Adobe. I've tried uninstalling Flash and reinstalling, then rebooting my computer but that didn't help. This seems to be a reoccuring problem for me on linux, not just with Manjaro, but also Ubuntu, and even with other web browsers based on Chromium, like Brave browser. Does anyone know what causes this or how I can get Flash working on some pages?

Last week Adobe Flash stopped actuating/working with Firefox and there is no black box in the address bar or any place else that I see that asks me to activate it. I have it set as Always Activate on the Plug-Ins page but that isn't helping. I checked and have the most recent version. I had to go through several steps to activate it but it does work in Chrome. I run Win 7 and Firefox is my default browser. Please advise how I can get Flash to work again as it is hampering a lot of my activity on the web. Thank you.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

I use Firefox v66.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro and on my weather website that has Flash links to external sites to display the Moon's phase and World City Times the placeholders to populate that info has become very slow indeed. It can take well over 40 seconds to show the times.

Using the same version of Firefox on a Windows 7 64-bit PC the data displays in seconds. Using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 it's also very quick. Only Firefox / Windows 10 seems to be the problem.

I have tried resetting things but to no avail. It's been like this for a couple of months now. My website has been unchanged in years. http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co.uk

Can you assist please?

Does anyone else have their Flash Plug-in NOT auto-update? I've been watching the last few Flash Updates from Adobe for a while and for me, they do not Auto-Update. I had to manually install version 32.0.0.171. I've manually installed the Adobe Shockwave Flash for years, but only recently waited to see if it would Auto-Update.

I noticed with the two other Plug-ins, they have Update buttons for Default / On / Off. The Flash Plug-in does not have these buttons. Is this why it does not / will not Auto-Update?

Anyway, I received an eMail today about the Latest Flash Update:
