Plugin Roadmap for Firefox

De Plugins hebben grote beveiligingsproblemen en prestatieproblemen voor Firefox gebruikers. NPAPI plugins zijn een sterk verouderde technologie. Mozilla zal deze plugins uit hun verkenner op korte termijn verwijderd. Steeds meer websites hebben geen plugins nodig, Laatste NPAPI plugin, Adobe Flash, heeft aangekondigd dat er een plan voor einde van ondersteuning is aanwezig. Om de overgang te ondersteunen heeft Firefox hard gewerkt om HTML5, CSS en javascript te verbeteren. Wees voorzichtig met gebruik Flash. Onderstaand staat een schema van verleden en toekomst voor plugins in Firefox.

Schedule

June 2016
Starting with Firefox 47 in June 2016, all plugins other than Adobe Flash are click-to-activate. Users choose which sites are allowed to activate each plugin. In addition, the 64-bit Firefox for Windows only supports the Flash plugin.
March 2017
Starting with Firefox 52 in March 2017, plugins other than Adobe Flash are no longer supported in Firefox. Firefox Extended Support Release 52 will continue to support non-Flash plugins until early 2018.
August 2017
Starting with Firefox 55 in August 2017, users must choose which sites are allowed to activate the Flash plugin. Users will have the choice to remember the Flash setting per-site. This change will be rolled out progressively during August and September 2017.

In order to improve security and performance, Mozilla will maintain a list of sites which cannot use any plugins.
September 2017
Starting with Firefox 56 in September 2017, Firefox for Android will remove all support for plugins (bug 1381916).
2019
In September 2019, Firefox 69 will remove the "Always Activate" Flash option so we always ask for user permission before activating Flash on a website.
2020
In early 2020, Flash support will be completely removed from consumer versions of Firefox. The Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) will continue to support for Flash until the end of 2020.
2021
When Adobe stops shipping security updates for Flash at the end of 2020, Firefox will refuse to load the plugin.
