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.

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:

I was having troubles with the Cinnamon desktop and had to switch video cards. I found Firefox crashed right away. I then replaced the video card and reloaded from scratch and the Cinnamon desktop works fine but Firefox still goes straight to crash report. In fact I tested and even Thunderbird goes straight to crash report. It does appear to send out the info and it created a report but I can't do a copy and paste of the report since I can't send anything out myself. The version that came with the Linux Mint 19.1 Distro 32 bit should be a 32 bit version. Both Firefox and Thunderbird is working fine on my other two 64 bit machines running Mint 19.1 64 bit.

I play Flash games on Kongregate every now and then, but - for whatever reason - Firefox 64 blocks them from saving.

They load OK but something (which must be a new setting that Firefox 64 added) is blocking them from saving new data, both automatically and when I manually click 'save' on games with this option. Nothing is writing to the Appdata folder where the game data is stored (stored as .sol files).

Never had the problem before, and everything works again if I revert to 63.0.3. Any ideas what could be causing it?

Many thanks in advance.

I need to run Adobe Connect. It doesn't seem to work in Firefox, probably (I think) because of sandboxing. Rather than disabling sandboxing in general, I'd rather use the Connect desktop app. But, before I knew of this problem, I ticked the "always allow" box when the Connect website wanted to run Flash. Now, I need that website to be disallowed from running Flash, because then it sends me to the desktop app when I click the meeting link on the conference host's website. I can achieve this by going to my add-ons preferences and disabling Flash on all websites before the conference, then re-enabling it afterwards. But I'd rather just remove the Connect website from the list of "always allow" sites for Flash. How can I do this?

When logged into www.bankofamerica.com and after selecting an account, I use "Shop Safe", a feature that provides a made-up CC number, a $ limit of my choice, expiration date of my choice, and a CVC1 code. This CC number is good for ONE TIME ONLY use. It sends money from my "real" CC account without revealing my "real" CC number and other details! Recently, even though updated Fire Fox browser is operating normally, the little "Shop Safe" window that appears will not "transfer data" like it once did. Their URL is not loading correctly...it tries to load, but nothing shows up inside the small web page. Here is the (partially edited) URL that makes that happen ...

https://shopsafe.bankofamerica.com/Athena/HTMLServlet ... some stuff edited out here ... then ends with Transparency_Indicator=0

I am unable to edit this URL. I can copy it however...just didn't want to put the complete URL in here for now.

This feature works OK in a Chrome browser, but only AFTER I "Click to Enable Adobe Flash" on a funny little symbol

in the middle of the blank space, and resubmit the page.  After doing that once, I don't have to do it again it seems.  

I have to do the same thing in an Edge browser (a little sign comes up in both saying "Click to Enable Adobe Flash". After clicking the symbol, I am asked to "Resend" to get the Shop Safe contents to show up in the window.

I don't get that little prompt message and funny symbol when using Fire Fox. I looked around Fire Fox and found a "switch" program to turn off/on Javascript (there is now a little "JS" symbol in the tool bar). Javascript is required by the main BankofAmerica web page, so I leave the JS switch in the on position.

QUESTION: How do I check to see if Adobe Flash is enabled in Fire Fox (I think it's turned off by default) ??? If it is not on and the "work around API" doesn't work, how can I turn on Adobe Flash in order to use Shop Safe. I'll turn it off again if I need to. I read that Fire Fox doesn't consider Adobe Flash safe, but I seem to need it for this use.

Thanks very much for your help. I'll look for an answer via eMail please. HEA1

My company is using Firefox for a photo ID capture application that is home-built. It utilizes a webcam and Flash to view and take the photos right in the web app.

I have several old computers setup for this that are outdated, however I cannot replace them as I cannot get a new image configured to work correctly.

On the old computers I need to select the "allow" option for the addon only once, then can take as many photos as needed.

On the new image, I am unable to select a "remember" option and have to click allow for every new ID photo that I take.

When processing upwards of a thousand new photos in a day, this is quite irritating.

The old computers are fully updated (both with Firefox and flash) and I cant find any difference in the settings that would make this change.

On the old one, I can do one of two things. 1) Click the addon "brick" in the address bar and select "Remember this decision" checkbox, then click allow. or 2) right click in the flash frame, and go to options and again check a box to always allow for the site.

Neither of these options are appearing for me on the new install.

for the addon "brick" in the address bar, the banner pops down, but is absent the "Remember this decision" checkbox.

If I right click in the flash frame, my options are extremely truncated.

Is there a setting to re-allow/show the "remember this decision" checkbox??

Please help!!!

I am trying to display streaming content from 4 webcams within my local network. This works properly on my Linux Mint box with Firefox 48.0, but does not work on My macbook running OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 on Firefox 50.1.0. Also same problem on my IMac.

The html code is like this...

<object type="application/x-vlc-plugin" data="rtsp://LWK-????:????????@192.168.1.xx:554/img/video.sav" width="500" height="375" id="video1"> <param name="movie" value="rtsp://192.168.1.0/archive/xxxxxxxxxxx"/> <embed type="application/x-vlc-plugin" name="video1" autoplay="no" loop="no" width="500" height="375" target="rtsp://LWK-????:????????@192.168.1.???:554/img/video.sav" />

I downloaded Flip4mac, as was advised on a post I found on stackoveflow, but that made no difference.

How do I know which plugin is needed? Searching on extensions, I see nothing for x-vlc-plugin. Is extension same as plugin? What do I download if not Flip4mac?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Joe
