Flash/HTML5 in Firefox

July 31, 2015 – 9:01 PM

I’ve been asked a lot lately about uninstalling Flash in Firefox and why users are still being served the Flash versions on Youtube, for example, and requiring them to install it before displaying the video.  I was asked again today and thought I would quickly post something about it.

The easiest way is to install the User Agent Switcher add-on and pick a user-agent string that is not compatible with Flash (iPad or iPhone strings work well).  This will force the HTML5 version of the pages/videos.
