Firefox keeps asking to allow Adobe Flash and even though I allow it, there is no option anymore to ALWAYS allow it.

Posted

Because there is no option to ALWAYS allow it, it asks a dozen times a day and keeps un-allowing it on its own. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

hello, the flash plugin is about to be sunset by adobe and all browser vendors within the next months - not allowing it to run by default anymore is one of the steps in the transition away from it.

Thanks for the info. It's annoying that it keeps going off right as I am looking at something. I can understand it not defaulting but, oh well.

How in the world is it helpful to Firefox users to force them to click "Allow Flash" EVERY TIME THEY NEED TO USE IT?

Once it's gone, great - it's gone.

But BEFORE it's gone, many of us MUST USE CURRENT WEBSITES WITH ADOBE FLASH. Making us incessantly click "Allow Flash" EVERY TIME WE MUST ACCESS THE SITE (which for me is about 40 times a day) is RIDICULOUS CRUELTY!

For what it's worth : I couldn't agree with you more.
