I’m using Firefox 52.9.0 on Windows XP 32bit system and looking for help to continue playing website video tubes now that Adobe Flash Player is going away: 1. Is there a replacement ‘plug-in’ that I can install to continue playing videos on websites with flash video content? How to install and use? 2. Have noticed many of these sites moving to HTML5 or H.264 format for video tube stream, but my browser will not play these. Is there a compatible HTML5 and/or H.264 player that will enable my browser to play these? Or other way to enable play on my existing version of Firefox? How to install and use? Thank You!

I am running an old computer using XP. All I want to do on this computer is view Virtual Railfan live streaming videos. When I try to view a video, it says that my browser doesn't recognize any of the video formats available. Then it points me to a html5 faq. When I click on that I go to Firefox home page and it wants me to download Firefox. I already have downloaded the latest Firefox. Is there a workaround for this?

Installing the current extended release of Firefox while keeper earlier version

I figured it was high time I installed a more current extended release of Firefox while keeping the current extended release version I have which I need in order to keep certain extensions, like the MAFF format, working.

But when I went to install it (custom install) into its own folder with a different version name, the button which showed up said "upgrade" instead of "install." I DO NOT want this installation to overwrite that earlier version. But that "upgrade" button makes me think that is what is likely to happen. How do I install it without it overwriting the older extended release version I already have installed?

On a different topic, I have learned that Flash will be discontinued at the end of this month. Can anyone tell me how this will impact my browsers? My online banking site uses Flash extensively, and I prefer using Firefox for that site. I'm assuming Chrome, which keeps updating itself automatically no matter what I do to stop it, will accommodate the change. But if I want to keep using that older extended release version of Firefox I have, what is likely to happen?

Thank you,

Dandelion
