I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

what does the flash player support ending mean to me?

Firefox doesn't need Flash for most sites. For example, YouTube doesn't use Flash any more. To get a sense of the impact of the end of Flash on your own browsing, consider how often you have seen this:

Firefox displays that notification icon if a site wants to use Flash, and the Flash-formatted content will not run until you click that icon and grant site-specific permission.

If that doesn't sound familiar, the sites you visit are not using Flash -- or you have been ignoring the Flash content on those sites. In those cases, you won't be missing anything by not having Flash.

If you do use content that runs on Flash -- for example, some online games -- you will lose access to that content unless/until the site updates it (hopefully they will soon). There is no substitute for the Flash player plugin, the content needs to be repackaged differently by the site.

Finally, if you are on Windows, please note that Microsoft plans to remove the Flash plugin from Windows through updates in January 2021 or afterwards: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/faq/adobe-flash-player#what-are-the-changes-expected-at-the-end-of-support

DirecTV / ATT continue to use Flash Player in order to watch DirecTV on Window's devices. Any suggestion on what to do when Flash is no longer allowed to operate in web browsers?

Stop paying their bills until it works again?

But seriously, have they forgotten to announce anything about this so far?
