Ubuntu – 2016: Firefox Replacement for Adobe Flash


Two-part Question. My box is 16.04

As I understand it: Adobe Flash for Linux is no longer supported and I am wondering if the security updates are supported?

What is the plan to replace Adobe Flash with a successor in Firefox (on Ubuntu)? Perhaps this has already happened?

Best Answer

Adobe Flash Player for Firefox is updated again. The latest version of the adobe-flashplugin package in Canonical Partner installs version of both the NPAPI and PPAPI plugin.
