Firefox: Support for Flash expires on January 26th

Mozilla on Tuesday unveiled the steps it will take to end support for Adobe Flash. "Firefox version 84 will be the latest version to support Flash. "On January 26, 2021, when version 85 of Firefox is launched, it will be released without Flash support, improving our performance and security," Mozilla said in a statement.

"There will be no setting to reactivate Flash support. The Adobe Flash plugin will stop loading Flash content after January 12, 2021. ”


Users on nightly and beta channels will see support disappear when version 85 launches, with nightly losing support on Tuesday and the channel beta is expected to lose Flash support on December 14th.

Mozilla said that if a company needs Flash licensing support after it expires, it should come to επαφή with Samsung's Harman for a version that will support Adobe.

The process of shutting down Flash on browsers it was time consuming.

Adobe announced the end of updates and distribution of Flash in July 2017. Apple of course managed to remove the technology in Safari 14 that was released in September.

On Tuesday, Firefox released version 83 that allowed users to browse the web only on sites HTTPS.

If Firefox 83 cannot establish an HTTPS connection, the browser will display error to the user and ask him to click on one button to confirm that it wants to access a site via HTTP.

Firefox 83 is also the first version to support pinching for desktop zoom.

Traditional zoom in Firefox causes the page to refresh as it zooms in, while pinching in Firefox 83 behaves as it does in mobile and only increases the size of the content.

"Pinch zooming" is currently supported on touch screens and touchpads on Windows desktops and Poppy, with Linux support highlighted as an ongoing project.
