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.
Not about Firefox, but people should also know that MS Edge is also dropping support for 'active-x', so that's another item to add to the list.
Excellent, might make a few more devlopers actually get off their lazy fat backsides and do something for themselves and learn something in the process rather than using something someone else built and know nothing about.
Now they just need to drop support for Bootstrap..........happy days!
Thanks for the update Nancy. I have two hardware point-of-sale plug-ins clients use. So it's good to be forewarned.
