Flash Player can no longer always be activated

Published: | Categories: Plug-ins

Description

As part of the ongoing Flash plug-in support deprecation, Firefox 69 has removed the “Always Activate” option from the page notification dialog and the “Remember this decision” option from the Add-on Manager. It means, from now on, Firefox will ask the user every time if they want to show Flash content on a website during a browser session, and the user won’t be able to change this behaviour.

At the time of this writing, only half of Firefox users have Flash Player installed according to Firefox Public Data Report, and the number is steadily decreasing. Given that the Flash support will be removed from Firefox and other browsers in 2020, you are strongly encouraged to make a migration plan as soon as possible if your site still relies on any Flash content including legacy video players.
