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.

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 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

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?
