    Firefox is blocking Flash by default

    1. I wonder when that will happen??
    2. What about sites that still use flash??

    And how does flash even effect Facebook??

    I use Pale Moon 64bit and to date haven't had trouble with this.

    I have FireFox 40 and have encountered this. By default the Flash plugin is set to "Ask to activate" and can't be changed to "Always activate". Same with the Java plugin.

    It is not blocking the Flash released today. Only Flash built prior to today. Pale Moon is a Firefox clone. Without Firefox there would be no Pale Moon.

    I had it on my Win 7 install last night. Haven't seen it on 10 yet though.

    I am using Cyberfox, it also does it. FF look alike. Seems like every time we get a windows update, Adobe will follow with updates.

    Gary,

    Technically, it is SeaMonkey there would be no Firefox or Pale Moon. Firefox use to be built from SeaMonkey from the way I understand it. Firefox has switched to some type of internal toolkit and now SeaMonkey is built from Firefox.

    I use Facebook in FF without Flash and the only thing I noticed is that Facebook videos don't work. I don't use games though.

    It reminds me of the old apple joke.

    If the criteria for disabling application is vulnerability, then we won't have computers for long.
