Activating Flash directly from the Firefox browser window A GUIDE FOR ALL USERS

Who is this for? This guide is for any Student and Faculty who wants to Active flash.

Adobe Flash is used to upload files in the Classic Interface and the Course Management System (CMS) of Digication. However, Adobe is discontinuing flash or better yet, repurposing it. For some time now, all web browsers are disabling support for it, this causes issues with some functions of Digication. However, this can be remedied by enabling flash in your browser. The steps to enable Flash are different for each, please follow the directions below for your specific web browser. Each browser also has a few options to do so, choose the best option based on your browser settings.

Step 1: In this browser, you should be prompted to activate flash on a page where there is a flash element. Click the option to “Run/activate” it (which ever term you see based on your OS). (Option 1)

STEP 2: Click on “Allow” from the small window that pops up. Flash will now be enabled in your browser.

STEP 1: Click on the icon in the upper right hand corner and select options from the dropdown menu and click on "Add-on". (Option 2)

STEP 2: Select “Plugins” if it is not selected and from the “Manage your plugins” window. Then click the dropdown menu next to “Shockwave flash” and choose the option “Always Activate.” Refresh your window and it will now be activated in your browser.
