I recently upgrade to FireFox v74.0 on my Linux system running Slackware64-current but can't seem to get the flashplayer plugin working.

Both of my IP webcams require the flashplayer plugin.

Can it be installed and enabled on FF v74.0 or am I stuck using my older version of FF v52.9.0 for my web cams ? (currently making this post with FF v52.9.0)

I have machinery that will run on XP and nothing after that, I believe Windows is trying to push us back into the dark ages, I was with them from 3.1 and Bill Gates, to push his product went to manufacturers that used computers with DOS and a yellow on black screen and convinced them to change to Windows, my first computer back then only needed a 120M hard drive.....now.....and then after years of upgrades, Microsoft dropped everyone that got them started, I can't even watch an instructional video on Youtube now because everyone does what "Microsoft" wants and stopped supporting??????

Ever notice that the sites that insist on the user disabling Ad Blocker to continue browsing are the ones that run 20 flash ads at the same time? Not to mention the half GB of content it seems that they download on every click?

Here's just one egregious example: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7919337/Last-flight-Wuhan-Everyone-wearing-masks.html

When I disabled my Ad Blocker, CPU usage went to 98% and the page froze my browser.

How do you guys deal with sites like these? Do they realize that this "heavy-handed" approach is counterproductive?

my ups thermal printer uses a java applet as I understand it. It last worked Friday Jan 3 2020. Now it will not print. Chrome works. This is a vista machine so both browsers are legacy. This is why I need to know if some kind of change was sent out on Jan 4-6?

I'm trying to log into eBay using FF 52.9 ESR, the last version that works on my old XP PC. It's always worked in the past, but now it's saying that I have to verify myself for security using a reCAPTCHA. After going through the interminable selection of pictures of buses, bridges and hydrants, it seems to work, but then this pops up -

"To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier."

If I click to re-send, all that happens is that the reCAPTCHA page comes up again, and I have to restart the whole thing. If I click to cancel, nothing happens. Any idea what's going wrong here? I've tried several times with the same result, and basically I can't now log into eBay! Thanks, Dave.

Hello.

I want to delete certificate "GeoTrust Global CA 2" that expired on 2019-03-04. This certificate is located in the Security Device "Builtin Object Token".

I tried to delete this certificate via settings (about:preferences#advanced -> View Certificates -> Delete or Distrust...). The certificate has been removed. But the certificate appeared again at the opening of these settings.

I tried to delete this certificate via "NSS Security Tools" with such command certutil.exe -D -d "D:\MyProgs7\FirefoxPortable52.9ESR\Data\profile" -n "GeoTrust Global CA 2" But the certificate appeared again after restarting Firefox.

How can I delete unwanted, expired, builtin certificate?

Thanks.

I cannot upgrade to the new crappy mozilla with themes. I can't find personas anywhere on the web. Did you delete them all so we couldn't stay on a non-spying version of Mozilla which works with the programs we use? Are they available somewhere, anywhere, to download? Shockingly, I have not enjoyed the wonderful 'signed addons' debacle done by some wunderkind did it without THINKING IT THROUGH. I LOST YEARS OF HISTORY AND BOOKMARKS when I tried the new crappy firefox and went back to my old version; thanks so much for that, too. I hope it's not much too ask to at least be able to download personas - in batches, singles, ANYTHING.
