Firefox does not activate Flash by default and thereby provides you with a fast, secure and reliable browsing experience. But, it gives you the option to allow Flash to run on a website. When you visit certain websites, Firefox blocks plugins. If Firefox blocks a plugin such as Adobe Flash, it prompts you to run that plugin. Sometimes it displays a specified message and sometimes you get a plugin notification icon towards the left end of the address bar. Follow the guide to enable Flash in Firefox effectively.
Moreover, Firefox let you choose whether you want to allow Flash only for that moment or for all of your future visits to a particular site. Unless you enable Adobe Flash, Firefox cannot load all your required contents on a specific site.
