Title pretty much says it all. I want to edit the database or whatever is holding those settings so I can add a site. Permissions manager lack the Flash settings unfortunately.

被選擇的解決方法

Those settings are stored in the permissions.sqlite file.

Hello,

This is not possible only with vanilla Firefox. Are you open to using an addon like AdBlockPlus or NoScript to achieve this?

Thank you

more options

I already have Adblock Plus and NoScript, though NoScript is disabled.

I'm trying to allow a site, not block it so I don't see how that can accomplish what I'm trying to do.

There's no way to get to the site. Google redirects it. So that's what's not allowing me to set the flash permission.

I just need to know where FF stores it's Flash settings. I have no problem editing a JSON file or other database file.

EDIT: ================================================================ Just need to add the following to all of my post so I stop getting notifications of unhelpful post....

Please, if you don't know where the database is located, don't reply.

That's the ONLY thing I want to know!

Sorry, but I'm very busy ATM and I would figure it out myself with Process Monitor if I had the time.

Thanks! ================================================================

I would like this as well. This would be a great option for the "Ask to Activate" selection of the Flash add-on. The way it is now some pages (Lumosity.com exercises for example) just won't work (and it doesn't tell you why either) unless I change the "Ask to Activate" option back to "Always Allow". Then of course I have to switch it back again when I'm done. Yuck.

Hello,

You can create a whitelist/blacklist of sites in AdBlock to do this, but from your post it is not clear if you are ok to do this via an extension like AdBlock. Can you please confirm. If not, there are other extensions specifically for flash blocking that you can use.

Hope this helps

See if this accomplishes what you want:

  1. Load the site
  2. Click the site identity icon at the left end of the URL/Location bar (globe, lock, etc.)
  3. On the drop down, click "More Information"
  4. On the "Page Information" display, click the "Permissions" tab
  5. Under the "Activate Plugins" section, on the "Adobe Flash" line, click "Allow"
  6. See - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/page-info-window-view-technical-details-about-page (NOTE: the image for "Permissions" on this page has not been updated to show the "Activate Plugins" section and I do not recall in which version that section was added to the Permissions tab, but it is in Firefox 25)

Then:

  • Test with the intended site and with a site where you have not made that setting.
  • You may or may not need to restart Firefox for the setting to take effect.
  • If you use NoScript, Request Policy, AdBlock Plus (where an ad is required before a video will play) or similar extensions, you may need to make changes to allow that site and any other site from which that top level domain requests the video.

I suppose I'm am going to get a "read my posts carefully" but I personally use an extension called Flashblock which allows you to easily toggle flash on/off for all websites with one click and also define a whitelist of sites where you always want it on.

I think it's much safer than messing around with advanced settings.

I'm good at messing with advanced settings. I like hacking things and have been doing it since I got my first computer.

Please, if you don't know where the database is located, don't reply.

I did read your posts carefully.

You can not, to my knowledge, add a site to allow directly to Flash. You can inquire on the Adobe Flashplayer forum to see if anyone there knows of a method to add an allowed site directly Flash. To the best of my knowledge, it must be done in the browser as I described.

The only item that I did not include in my response was your statement: "There's no way to get to the site. Google redirects it. So that's what's not allowing me to set the flash permission."

If the above does not apply, restate your question and include include all procedures that you have attempted.

Please, for the love of the FSM, stop responding with unhelpful posts.

I DON"T DO MALWARE!

I'm a security buff. I try to read 30 ~ 40 security pages daily.

Way to chew on people trying to help you.

Some people just don't appreciate free help. Looks like this guy would rather be rude and mess around with altering a database and not fully explain what he has attempted already. And that reply concerning Google redirecting and my reply about possible malware was truly "off the wall". I read many blogs and reviews everyday about security, internet, PCs and other issues, but this user seems to think he knows it all and that his system is infallible when it comes to malware. I believe that he has much to learn. And learning about how to treat/talk to someone offering free assistance should be the first thing on his list. He's already on my short list of Firefox users to whom I will not respond in the future.

I have over 30 years experience with desktop PCs (plus experience prior to that with minis and mainframes) and have been a user of Firefox and Mozilla's prior browsers for many, many years.

Please go away.

You haven't helped as you claim. You've been a hindrance and are just trying to pump up your numbers.

I certainly don't need you so please stop clogging my inbox!

Thanks!

Yeah, I get being obsessive compulsive about computer security, but snapping at people who are going out of their way to *try* and solve his problem is just pathetic.

What an awful way to behave.

Finally! Someone that understands a simple question and provides a simple answer! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I should have known. I new it stored cookie permissions and it didn't cross my mind. Like I said earlier, I'm real busy ATM. :(

Hopefully, Mozilla will soon add this to about:permissions so that novices can edit it too.

Here's a screenie for anyone wanting to do the same...

Flash Permission in permissions.sqlite...duh!

Attached too but smaller...
