Mozilla plans to disable Adobe Flash by default in Firefox 69 according to the official website bug-tracking the company's.
Adobe Flash Player is the last NPAP plugin Firefox supports. Support for other NPAPI plugins such as Microsoft Silverlight or Java were removed from Firefox in version 52. Η Google σταμάτησε επίσης την υποστήριξη για τα NPAPI addons από το 2015 στον Chrome.
Firefox continued to support Adobe Flash, as did Google, which integrated Adobe Flash into the Chrome browser 2010, and Microsoft did the same in the latest Windows browsers.
Mozilla, Google as well as other devs browsers are naturally ready to shut down Flash completely since Adobe decided to withdraw 2020.
So Mozilla is getting ready two different actions for Flash 2019:
- In early 2019 a visible warning will appear on users of Firefox to use Flash.
- Later in 2019: Disable Adobe Flash by default in Firefox.
Adobe Flash was a pioneering technology many years ago, but its popularity has declined significantly in recent years. New web standards were introduced that replaced it software Flash. Although there are still pages that use Flash, this technology plays a less important role in today's Internet than it did ten years ago.
Mozilla plans to disable Adobe Flash in Firefox from version 69. The Firefox release program gives 3 September 2019 as the release date of the fixed edition 69. Mozilla will naturally turn off Flash first in the Nightly version of 69, then on the Beta channel and finally on Stable.
Η απενεργοποίηση σημαίνει ότι το Flash δεν μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί πλέον από προεπιλογή εκτός και αν ενεργοποιηθεί ξανά από το χρήστη. Ο Firefox δεν θα προτρέπει πια τους users για την ενεργοποίηση του Flash όταν το απαιτούν κάποιες ιστοσελίδες, αλλά θα επιτρέπει την ενεργοποίηση του Flash στο πρόγραμμα περιήγησης.
The next steps for removing Flash will be 2020 and 2021. Support for Flash will be completely removed from all versions of Firefox except Firefox ESR 2020. Firefox ESR will continue to support Flash until the end of 2020.
Google and other browser makers are planning to end their support for Flash.
It remains to be seen what will happen to websites like her archive.org that require Flash, because they have thousands of Flash games and applications.
