Mozilla Details How Old Adobe Flash Plugins Will Be Blocked In Firefox 17

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year and a half ago

Firefox 0

An anonymous reader writes "Last week, Mozilla announced it will prompt Firefox users on Windows with old versions of Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, and Microsoft Silverlight, but refused to detail how the system will work. Today, the organization unveiled “click-to-play plugin blocks” will be on by default in Firefox 17, starting with the three aforementioned plugins (expect more to be added eventually). Furthermore, you can try out the feature for yourself now in Firefox 17 beta for Windows, Mac, and Linux."
