No Flash in 25.0.6?

Post by nima_amin »

I have a little interactive kitty companion in my browser which works via flash. In the older versions I could in the flash settings put this website on the exception list, and good was. Now in the latest version I get Flashplayer is blocked, and no option to activate it. Please check and let me know what I am doing wrong:

It seems Slimjet has decided to block Flash by default. On the site you mention I notice there is an icon with a red cross by it at the right-hand end of the URL-bar. Hover over it with the mouse and it says "Flash was blocked on this page". However, if you right-click on this icon and then click on "Manage" you get to the settings page where you can change "Block sites from running Flash (recommended)" to "Ask first". If you change it to "Ask first", hopefully you will then get back the option to enable Flash on that webpage.

(You can also access this switch from Settings in the main Slimjet menu. Scroll down and click Advanced, then under "Privacy and security" click "Site settings" and scroll down to "Flash".)

Michael, thank you. Indeed it was the thing in the general settings. In the previous version I had put that website on the whitelist. but obviously this setting was not kept during the upgrade to the newer version.
However today when starting the browser I received something about Chrome no longer supporting Flash player. What is this? There are many websites that use Flash Player - with Internet Explorer no longer existing and all orher browsers being either Chrome, Firefox or Opera clones that would mean then that they won't be visible with any browser? Or will Slimjet keep this function? It would be nice to have a thread about this here.
