I have been requested to uninstall Adobe Flash player. I am still using Flash Player for some web sites and am ask to activate before video will work. At the end of the year I am told that Flash Player will no longer work. I asked one of the sites what I should do and they recommended using Chrome and html5 to watch video. I have also checked several sites to see what can be done with Firefox to continue watching video without changing browsers. I wish Firefox would put out a step by step process to fix this problem and allow me to use html5 in a Firefox browser. I am reluctant to uninstall Flash Player until I understand how to make html5 or whatever is required to continue to watch live stream and youtube. It looks like I have until January before Flash Player is inoperative. BTW, I have Firefox version 82, running Win10 with Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0. Jay

Hi, Firefox has HTML5 enabled so there is no need to use Chrome. If the site you are looking at can use HTML5 but it won't work in Firefox, it may be that it is still trying to use Flash, so go to 3-bar menu > Add-ons > Plugins, then on Shockwave Flash click the three dots menu at the right-hand side (...) and set it to Never Activate then restart Firefox. That should work, but if not, you may have to uninstall Flash completely.
