FLASH PROBLEMS WITH FIREFOX

Although only indirectly concerning OpenCPN,I thought it important enough to advice ALL Firefox users who are having problems accessing program menus using Flash.

I use flash extensively in my web pages and for a long time could not use my preferred browser,Firefox as it did not activate ANY flash based device.

However, here is a quick and easy solution I received today from the Firefox Forum guys:

If RealPlayer is installed, try this first

Turn off Web Download & Recording in RealPlayer

  1. Launch RealPlayer
  2. Click the RealPlayer icon in the upper left corner of the window and choose Preferences.
  3. Choose Download & Recording from the left hand panel
  4. Uncheck "Enable Web Download & Recording for these installed browsers"
  5. Click OK and close RealPlayer
  6. Restart Firefox
This will remove the RealPlayer Browser Record extension from the Firefox Add-ons Manager.

And it really works!!

Flash is evil in many ways, just avoid it if possible
