Mozilla Firefox now Blocks Flash

Earlier this week Mozilla’s Chief Security Officer publicly asked Adobe, the makers of Flash, to kill it off for good. Around the same time Firefox began completely blocking the use of the plugin. 123 Support, LLC recognizes this as big news for organizations as most browsers have depended on Adobe Flash for over a decade and the most recent move by Mozilla could mark the beginning of the end for the often buggy and frequently exploited Flash software.

In recent years many web developers have moved away from Flash in favor of more modern and secure platforms such as HTML5. Most often utilized for multimedia and rich internet applications, Adobe Flash has been abandoned by big content providers like YouTube in recent years.
