Oh, & while we're all here stinking away, I had wanted to check out "brazilianfartporn.prv" but just get "server not found"?

Would anyone know if 'disabled Flash' will be a changeable setting in "about:Config"?

Not quite sure what you're asking, but Flash control is configured in Addons Manager - Plugins.


(There is an about:config entry dealing with Flash, but don't know if it's still a viable Pref?)

Hmm... I guess that question was a little vague. :oops:

Mozilla has decided to disable Flash as a default in Firefox 69 and I was wondering if anyone knew just how that would be possible to do? Sadly I still, after all this time, have one site that still requires Flash

If they are disabling it by default, have to figure that they are defaulting the setting in Addons Manager to 'Never Activate'.

(I would also assume that it would only be that way for a new Profile (?) with an existing Profile being left where it was ?)

The article said that 'Firefox/Mozilla will stop supporting Flash at that time. It also said that the user could enable it manually. But it did not say how.

My question was 'does anyone know how?' And I only asked because i was curious. I don't really care.

and nobody cares right now because Firefox 69 does not exist yet, The Mechanic.

so what you are asking for does not matter...not until the first FF69 nightly build comes out later this year.

I suspect it had a lot to do with you trolling here again, Tinsmith. Best you think again on doing that here.

Probably more subtle than most. But the old troll trick of finding a topic on a subject some people care about and then doing the faux 'I don't really care' stuff to prod them.. goes back ages.

Goes back ages with this guy too - search.php?keywords=care&terms=all&author=The+Mechanic&sc=1&sf=all&sr=posts&sk=t&sd=d&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search

I'd write more, but I don't really care.
