    52.9.1 needs to be downloaded and installed manually, there's a thread about it here.
    It's only available in US English, but that's fine for you!

    I fixed my add-ons signing problem by manually installing the new certificate using the information I was given here.
    It's a bit fiddly, but it did work!
    You will need to enable running commands in the browser console by setting "devtools.chrome.enabled" to "true" in the configuration editor.
    You also need to reset the "app.update.lastUpdateTime.xpi-signature-verification" entry after installing the new certificate for an immediate fix!

    Thanks, Dave-H!

    My FF 52.9.1 ESR's add-ons are working fine, but still have the verification warnings on most of them on the add-ons page list.
    I'll wait awhile to see if this corrects itself automatically, as there seems to be no actual loss of functionality.

    The saddest thing is I'm only running two extensions,  UBlock and Disconnect, and it's nearly impossible to surf without them.

    It seems to be fixed now.
    A certificate had expired apparently, which presumably nobody at Mozilla had anticipated!
    I didn't have the problem with FF 52.9.1 ESR on Windows XP, but I did have it on FF 66.0.3 on Windows 10.
    It was very annoying while it lasted!

    Mine is still botched.  Except that I don't have 52.9.1... I have 52.9.0.  Is this the reason and why was I not updated?

    As my page states, if you are using Chrome 44, you should use the NPAPI plug in.  Due to changes in Chrome 45, you should use the PPAPI plug in for Chrome 45 and newer.

    This transition began back in January 2014 with Chrome 32.

    You can learn more about the NPAPI deprecation in Chrome 45 + here: The Chromium Projects: NPAPI deprecation: developer guide

    I have been using 44 and 49 and they are both installed.  Only is recognized on either.


    I have done this process successfully on many Windows XP machines. If it isn't working for you, you may need to review the steps to make sure you didn't miss anything.

    Still can't get either Chrome or Firefox to recognize the update.  Only Windows Control Panel indicates it's installed.  The old Firefox plugin is completely gone.  The following probably partly explains why this didn't work:  I can't find the folders you've indicated should be there.  The post-install folders on my XP Pro, SP3 are very similar to the ones on your page but not quite the same.  Like minus a sub-folder or two, for instance.  This folder and file are there: 

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder. Right-click on the file called pepflashplayer32_31_0_0_122.dll"

    This "C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\49.0.2623.112\PepperFlash" is missing.  I got "C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application" and dropped in the pepflashplayer.dll and manifest.json .   

    Flash substitute for Firefox:

    Beta channel for Adobe Flash Player was updated September 20 to, and is confirmed working on Windows

    & http://sdfox7.com/chromexp3.htm


    I stumbled onto your page regarding updating Flash for Chrome with WinXp and followed the step-by-step instructions, attempting an upgrade from  In the Flash Player Settings Manager, it now says "The settings on this page are not applicable to Google Chrome or chromium-based browsers (PPAPI)" and I'm not getting the 'version image' from the page, http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/.

    Sadly, am not seeing an improvement over 11.2.  I tried to update it about 7 years ago and the newer version was slow to the point of uselessness.   So, here's me, stepping out again. 

    Also, I have both 44 and 49 versions of chrome installed.  Should I use the NPAPI or PPAPI?

    The folders you mention here (http://sdfox7.com/chromexp3.htm) are spelled slightly differently in my SP3.   Another tell-tale I've screwed up?

    There have been a few streaming sites that I haven't been able to get working without Flash, but that's not specific to this latest FF version.

    That's what it was.  I corrected by re-enabling PCDM and OpenH264.  I had them turned off to get a specific site to use Flash instead.  Strange thing is before 52.1.1, Flash would play the site links that I'm now using PCDM for.  I can't think of any other reason why that would happen except for the browser upgrade.  Keep in mind, I am a new PCDM user and always used Flash before, uh, well, May.  So what's up with Flash?

    @Andy Sethmaier Since you didn't have Primetime installed before, don't forget to edit media.gmp-manager.url and replace the %VERSION% part with 51.0. This was mentioned a couple of times earlier in the thread, but since I've been lazy, I hadn't yet added it to the opening post by the time you first read it.

    Hi, mixit, and all!

    I have a new major headache (enclosed .bmp).  Video-streaming links that normally have played for years (as of yesterday) are showing me this error message, "Error loading player: No playable sources found" - Yesterday is when 52.1.1 auto-installed!  There's no other explanation.  Do I rollback to an earlier version of Firefox or what now?  I am demoralized.

    Welcome to the MSFN forums, Andy :)! You will not lose your Flash unless you explicitly disable or uninstall it. Installing Primetime doesn't do that, so you're OK

    So, here's where I'm at now:  Under Add-ons/plugins, PCDM was downloaded.  However, in yellow, it states that it "will be installed shortly".  Stuck at that point.  It also added the
    "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc." which seems installed.

    For whatever reason, I've had a few XP FF 52.x ESR installs that wouldnt download/install the Adobe Primetime Content Decryption Module unless/until I added:

    media.gmp-eme-adobe.forceSupported = true


    Before I add "media.gmp-eme-adobe.forceSupported = true"
    to download/install APCD, I'd like to avoid losing my specific version of Flash.  Is that a go?

    My problem (I believe) is the basic same as everyone else's.  Twitter will not read MP4 (H.264 + AAC) HTML5 videos.  Works on Google Chrome, not Firefox.  In my case when I scroll past one, Firefox 52.0.1 ESR often freezes, which is most annoying.
