    OT: Firefox 52 removes plugins

      Firefox 52 update will remove ALL plugins except for Flash player.

      Most plugins are no longer necessary as  QuickTime is dead, Silverlight is deprecated and Oracle is dropping Java browser plugin soon.   Firefox offers a build-in PDF reader and DRM support as well.  So this will be no big deal for most users. 

       

      For enterprise users who require Java in particular, Firefox 52 Extended Support Release (ESR) will keep the plug-in support enabled until May 2018.

       

      What does this mean for websites?  You should develop a strategy right now to replace ALL plug-in dependent content (including Flash) with browser supported web technologies.
