Support for Adobe Flash ends in December 2020. After that time, it will no longer be possible to use Flash. This extension available for web browsers like Chrome, Opera or Firefox offered the possibility to play multimedia contents and came along with the following features: Possibility to play multimedia contents, videos, and applications such as games on screens and browsers. I have updated to Firefox 3.6.13 and Flash 10,1,102,64 (Mac OS X 10.6.4). I can view Flash content localy with Firefox but not over the web. I can view the same Flash content online and localy with Safari. When I try to view Flash content created using Adobe Bridge Gallery, Firefox opens the page, but only displays the circular progress.
Adobe will end support of Flash Player on December 31, 2020. Here's what you can expect in the meantime for each Microsoft browser:
In the next version of Microsoft Edge (built on Chromium), Flash will be disabled by default. However, users may re-enable it on a site-by-site basis. The timeline for Chromium-based browsers can be found here.
Flash will not be disabled by default from Microsoft Edge (built on EdgeHTML) or Internet Explorer 11 prior to its removal by December of 2020.
Flash will be completely removed from all browsers by December 31, 2020, via Windows Update. Group policies are available for enterprise admins and IT pros to change the Flash behavior prior to that date.
Companies reliant on Flash for development and playback of content are encouraged to remove the dependency on Adobe Flash prior to December 2020.
