  2. Downloading flash for the firefox browser

    I'm trying to view pages that require flash and firefox is directing me to the adobe site to download the right file.

    There are three choices.

    YUM for Linux

    .tar.gzfor Linux

    .rpm for Linux

    I have downloaded all three but when I go to file manager/n900/documents to retrieve the file it gives me three more options to install.

    app manager

    as_demon

    backup.

    I choose app manager, click 'agree' to terms and conditions and it tells me every time it's unable to install because installation file is corrupted.

    This happens with all the linux choices.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong and how I get flash for firefox?

    Thank you.

  3. Downloading flash for the firefox browser

    It isn't officially supported.. and you certainly can't download it from adobe.. From the release notes for mobile firefox:



    Does Firefox on my phone support plugins? Support for plugins in Firefox for Maemo has been disabled. On most Web pages that use the Adobe Flash plugin, the performance of the plugin didn't meet our standards, and the interactivity and performance of the
    entire Web page was negatively impacted. This was especially felt on pages with multiple instances of the plugin. Advanced users can enable plugins for experimentation and testing purposes only. We plan to provide a browser add-on that will enable you to selectively
    enable plugins on certain sites, because some sites, like YouTube, work well.

    You can try these instructions, but don't expect it to be great:

    downloading firefox

    Hello Paul, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    The two areas below here can show you where to download Firefox and Chrome.

    Latest Firefox Released for Windows

    Latest Google Chrome Released for Windows

    You can go to your Control Panel (icons view) in Windows 10, and click/tap on the Programs and Features icon to see what programs are installed.

    If you like, you could use Windows Defender to scan drives and files with. It comes with Windows 10. I also have a custom context menu in the tutorial below to make using "Scan with Windows Defender" more convenient to use as needed.

    I think you have to be Online to get Chrome. You could try one of the pages here to get the offline installer, download it then disconnect from the 'net to install.
    download chrome for offline install at DuckDuckGo
