Bug voting is open. Your help file says "Click on the "(vote)" link that appears on the right of the "Importance" fields." I do not know what an importance field is. The word "importance" does not appear on the page. The word "vote" does not appear either. THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS LINK ARE NOT FOR REGULAR USERS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=voting.html

Where is the vote button??? Here is the page where I want to vote: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

As a beginner, I see nothing at the end of this page to be notified if responded. If I dont' get notified, I probably wont be able to find my way back here. Why so difficult for non-power users?!?

Thank you! The Details tab was not automatically expanded, which I think it should be, and the Moz needs to keep up with their own changes!

Maybe you should file a new bug to get that page updated? ;-)

Note that the bug is WONTFIX for Firefox 69 and FIX-OPTIONAL for Firefox 70.

As posted in another thread, you can extend the default expiration time from 60 minutes (one hour) to 1440 minutes (one day) in Firefox 69 by modifying a pref on the about:config page.

  • plugin.sessionPermissionNow.intervalInMinutes => 1440 (default = 60)

The page I use Flash on does not expire after an hour. Its been going for 4+hours now It is the weather.gov local radar loop from the NWS. I confirmed my system set for 60 minutes expire. Using V69.0.1 .

I've had yourMountain View, CA base reflectivity loop running for 2+ hours: https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=MUX&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loop=yes

It's not expiring. However, when I opened another tab to visit Mountain View radar, I had to again click to activate Flash, then again to allow it, even while another tab is running flash on the same weather.gov server.

As long as you are on the same tab and Flash is running then it should continue to run. I think that if you would refresh the tab or open a new tab after the permission has expires that you will have to allow the plugin once again.

Did you try to increase the value of the above mentioned pref on the about:config page?

  • plugin.sessionPermissionNow.intervalInMinutes

No. As long as it runs, I don't seem to need so. But yes, if I refresh the tab, I have to do it again. The page has an auto update feature, and also a within map refresh button which does not affect the permission.

The local NWS webserver replied to my question, and he says NWS is planning to replace Flash but does not know the time table.

Hi weird1, did you have a follow-up question about voting on Bugzilla, or about notifications?
