In Firefox 62.0 how do I prevent it from reporting on installed plugins ?

Hello,

I've been hardening my Firefox 62.0 according to the 'Hardening Mozilla Firefox Quantum For Privacy & Security 2018 Edition' ! I wanted to use the plugin.scan.plid.all option and set it to false, but I couldn't find it in this version. I prefer this to privacy.resistFingerprinting option as setting the latter to true may be more unique.

Is there an equivalent setting in Firefox 62.0 for disabling plugin scans ?

Many thanks

Is THIS the "fix" for being UNABLE to open new windows in Firefox Quantum 66.0.2 (64-bit) since the update?

Firefox has been my browser of choice for years, but like THIS user (thread below), I was just about to hang it up and go with Chrome when I read that plugins might be causing the problem. I never imagined that those plugins would ALSO include the ones that are installed by DEFAULT.

I opened the "manage plugins" screen and clicked "never activate" the following two plugins that are installed by DEFAULT in Firefox:

OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco and Wildvine Content Decryption Module provided by Google.

That fixed the problem. (Does anybody think this is a "nefarious plot" by the big G?  :) )

For other plugins/solutions, see this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217498

Hope this helps someone avoid "crazy-making town."  :) I lived there for weeks.

The problem is a message (download Pelign) and indeed whatever you download it always comes the same message

Your old version 28 must be downloaded for this message to not appear

[linux] Firefox 79.0 fails to play local .swf files

The adobe flash player plugin is properly installed to the variable MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH. I made sure to place the shared object for where the Gecko engine searches for plugins, as seen here. In my case, I put the shared object in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and in $HOME/.mozilla/plugins. I verified the location of the variable in my shell with $ echo $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH I also made sure to copy the usr/ folder that comes with the adobe flash tar.gz archive $ sudo cp -r usr/* /usr I start Firefox in safe made in about:support. I then went to about:plugins and the plugins sections in about:addons to verify that flash has been properly installed. Then, I test the ability to play flash on here and on a random flash site as seen in the screenshots. In the profile I am currently using in about:profiles, I made sure that the http_https_only toggle in about:config is set to 'false'. I veryify by opening other types of local files in Firefox: pdf, mp4, etc (pdf screenshoted).

I then make sure that Firefox is what is set to open files with the mimetype of .swf files via $ xdg-mime query default application/x-shockwave-flash To verify the output, I checked the entry in $HOME/.config/mimeapps.list for the entry for swf mimetype files.

I cannot use the flash player projector. This is because the projector version of flash calls for the function pthread_yield(), which is a part of the pthread.h header for glibc, as seen here; I use musl-libc for my C library and standard C headers. The call for pthread_yield() can be seen via $ ldd /path/to/flashplayer The NPAPI version of flash does no such thing. That's why I can play swf mimetypes through the flash firefox plugin.

I am currently using version 79.0 of Firefox. I can't remember which version I had before, but I was previously able to play local swf files. I am not sure if an update broke it somehow. Attempting to open a swf file will simply prompt firefox for the xdg-open check for what I would like to open the swf file with over and over again - an infinite loop. I know flash is no longer going to be support by December 2020, but until then I need to finish up some things. I make this as a clarification to my previous question, which seems to have died off. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough in it. The about:support I use for my daily profile can be found here. If needed, I can post more info about my Firefox profile in my user. Thanks
