    Maybe that's the problem I was having a couple of days ago trying to upload a joke into the W10 forced upgrade Thread.

    FWIW said 'restrictions' will be circumventable via Firefox preferences - Howbeit the user would then be subject to frequent prompting to 'activate flash':mad: -- Heaven save us from those would save us from ourselves (CIP firefox)!:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Best regards

    What is the supposed advantage/disadvantage of the Flash-based uploader anyway?

    Hello,

    @jrap can explain the advantage/disadvantage of the flash uploader.
    I think you can use drag and drop with the flashuploader.
    When it is disabled, the file browser of the system will be show.

    Thanks. Perhaps jrap will chip in?
    I've only ever used the system file browser for uploads.
    Have I imagined it, or have there been security issues associated with Flash?

    Hello,

    At the moment I get this message about flash on my system:

    There is no newer flash version for my linux system available.

    I do not see that option in Firefox preferences. Is that where it is supposed to be (latest version, Mac OSX)
