Question: Firefox and Flash: Is the flash warning disabled?

Post#1 by joadmin » 24 Sep 2015, 06:58

Hello,

sorry that I post a normal question in the bug report, but I didnt found a good area for the Kisok Edition, becuase its not feedback or dev.

I had the problem that Chrome play videos pixelated. I searched a while and the only possible reason I find that there is maybe the hardware support disabled. Then I tried Firefox, but had the problem that I cant play videos. They simple start but stop at the loading screen. I tried several sides because I thougth maybe our side has a Problem. After that I used Firefox with flash and it works perfekt (non legacy flash).

Now the question: If I run this setup (FF with flash) without an update several month or years, will then promt the Firefox too old Flash message or is this now disables and aside of sercurity (its our own side so that no problem) we can run this without problems for "ever".

Regards
Sascha

Outdated flash warning is disabled by default as many companies wants to get the product totally for free or does not need the updates.

You can install the kiosk and it should run just fine for years.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
