Flash permissions are not saved
I have been trying to save Flash permissions for a website, but every time I visit it Firefox has disabled Flash again. The interface seems to have changed so that there isn’t any way to “Always Allow”. This is a dictionary I will be visiting a lot, so it’s incredibly annoying. How can I fix this?
hello Moilleadoir... you please try these steps...
* In the drop-down, click the option called Add-ons.
- Of the options on the left side of the screen, choose Plugins. ...
- Scroll down the list of Plugins until you find Shockwave Flash (this is another name for Flash Player).
- The enable Flash, click the drop-down box on the Shockwave Flash plugin and choose Always Activate.
Does that mean you can’t save permissions per site any more?
yes it mean you can’t save permissions per site any more.
You can't set "Shockwave Flash" to "Always Activate" anymore; you can only click "Allow" when a site asks you to activate Flash.
It's the end-of-life for Flash at the end of this year (which was anounced by Adobe a long time ago).
Please see this thread :
A change in version 69.0, as part of phasing out Flash, is in the Release Notes:
"As previously announced in the Plugin Roadmap for Firefox, the "Always Activate" option for Flash plugin content has been removed. Firefox will now always ask for user permission before activating Flash content on a website."

Such choices are saved as part of the Site Preferences.
In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.
do not clear the Site Preferences
Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-browsing-search-download-history-firefox
