Enabling file downloads for Firefox on Mac

Follow

Starting with Firefox version 62 for Mac, Adobe Flash applets will be run in a more secure mode using process sandboxing. This prevents certain file downloads in FlexiTime.

 

To disable the Flash sandbox take the following steps:

 

  1. Type about:config in to the address bar and press enter:

  3. Search for dom.ipc.plugins.sandbox-level.flash in the search bar:

  4. Double click on dom.ipc.plugins.sandbox-level.flash and change the integer value to 0:
