Activating Flash Directly from the Firefox Browser A Guide for Students and Faculty

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.

Update: At the time of this writing, Adobe and Microsoft are suggesting that you remove Adobe flash from your computer. More on that here: https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/kb4577586-update-for-the-removal-of-adobe-flash-player-october-27-2020-931521b9-075a-ce54-b9af-ff3d5da047d5. Digication will be replacing Adobe flash content with versions built using HTML5. If you are still using adobe flash follow the directions below on activating it in your browser.
