    The End of an Era – Next Steps for Adobe Flash

    [Update Aug 30 2019 – We have posted an update on our plans for the removal of Flash support from Microsoft browsers, including the new Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge. – Ed.]

    Today, Adobe announced that Flash will no longer be supported after 2020. Microsoft will phase out support for Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer ahead of this date.

    Flash led the way on the web for rich content, gaming, animations, and media of all kinds, and inspired many of the current web standards powering HTML5. Adobe has partnered with Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, Apple, and many others, to ensure that the open web could meet and exceed the experiences that Flash has traditionally provided. HTML5 standards, implemented across all modern browsers, provide these capabilities with improved performance, battery life, and increased security. We look forward to continuing to work with Adobe and our industry partners on enriching the open web without the need for plug-ins.

    We will phase out Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, culminating in the removal of Flash from Windows entirely by the end of 2020. This process began already for Microsoft Edge with Click-to-Run for Flash in the Windows 10 Creators Update. The process will continue in the following phases:

    • Through the end of 2017 and into 2018, Microsoft Edge will continue to ask users for permission to run Flash on most sites the first time the site is visited, and will remember the user’s preference on subsequent visits. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash with no special permissions required during this time.
    • In mid to late 2018, we will update Microsoft Edge to require permission for Flash to be run each session. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash for all sites in 2018.
    • In mid to late 2019, we will disable Flash by default in both Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Users will be able to re-enable Flash in both browsers. When re-enabled, Microsoft Edge will continue to require approval for Flash on a site-by-site basis.
    • By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.

    This timeline is consistent across browsers, including Google, Mozilla, and Apple. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Adobe, other browser vendors, and the publishing community, as we evolve the future of the web for everyone.

    My new Edge updates itself.


    bad choice for me 😉 with databased surfstick. i have disabled the two update-services of edge with ccleaner because i cant find an option to deactivate the auto-update-function

    Update on removing Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer

    In 2017, we published a roadmap to remove Adobe Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer by 2020. Since that post, we announced our intent to build Microsoft Edge on the Chromium open source project. In this post, we will provide an update on what to expect for the Flash retirement in Microsoft browsers.

    Here’s what you can expect for each Microsoft browser:

    In the next version of Microsoft Edge (built on Chromium), we will continue to retire Flash in the same timeframe as other Chromium based browsers. You can learn more of that timeline in this blog post. Flash will initially be disabled, and the user will need to re-enable Flash on a site-by-site basis; Flash will be completely removed from the browser towards the end of 2020. Group policies are available for enterprise admins and IT pros to change the Flash behavior prior to that date.

    For both the in-market version of Microsoft Edge (built on EdgeHTML) and Internet Explorer 11, the current experience will continue as-is through 2019. Specifically, we no longer intend to update either Microsoft Edge (built on EdgeHTML) or Internet Explorer 11 to disable Flash by default. We still plan to fully remove Flash from these browsers by December 2020, as originally communicated.

  4. ublock v1.27.0

     gorhill released this 

    3 days ago


    The popup panel and dashboard have been redesigned to be more user friendly, including more mobile-friendly. The re-design is being done by taking into account @brampitoyo's suggestions and feedback.

    You can revert to the old popup panel by setting uiFlavor to classic in advanced settings -- though keep in mind the old panel is not likely to be kept around forever.

    Closed as fixed:




    Notable commits with no entry in issue tracker:

  5. i have installed it as replacement for ie11 on older w7 32 bit -> nice and fast :-)

    on w8.1 64 bit -> similar as srw iron portable (chromium)


    now im waiting where the updates come from for both :-) windows update or enhanced microsoft update (for other microsoft produkts) or browser itself

  6. as you can see in the line "specifikation" -> there is your correct cpu-id

    i think its a subcategory of the cpu above (an improved version)


    the other thing is speccy is not up to date... perhaps in an newer version in the future it works better.

  7. what kind of windows opens? what windows-content?

    if all from ccleaner i can imagine what popups.

    one way is to block ccleaner with your firewall... the next is disable something in the settings if you dont need or want this for yourself


    have you the free version or a buyed one?

    is smart cleaning active? or scheduling (pro)?

    is updates set of automatically?

    • Audio playback is currently not working when running the 32-bit Windows version of Firefox ESR from a network drive. This will be addressed in the next major Firefox ESR release.


    Security Vulnerabilities fixed in Firefox ESR 68.8

    Announced May 5, 2020
    Impact critical
    Products Firefox ESR
    Fixed in Firefox ESR 68.8

    #CVE-2020-12387: Use-after-free during worker shutdown

    Reporter Looben Yang
    Impact critical

    A race condition when running shutdown code for Web Worker led to a use-after-free vulnerability. This resulted in a potentially exploitable crash.


    #CVE-2020-12388: Sandbox escape with improperly guarded Access Tokens

    Reporter James Forshaw of Google Project Zero
    Impact critical

    The Firefox content processes did not sufficiently lockdown access control which could result in a sandbox escape.
    Note: this issue only affects Firefox on Windows operating systems.


    #CVE-2020-12389: Sandbox escape with improperly separated process types

    Reporter Niklas Baumstark
    Impact high

    The Firefox content processes did not sufficiently lockdown access control which could result in a sandbox escape.
    Note: this issue only affects Firefox on Windows operating systems.


    #CVE-2020-6831: Buffer overflow in SCTP chunk input validation

    Reporter Natalie Silvanovich of Google Project Zero
    Impact high

    A buffer overflow could occur when parsing and validating SCTP chunks in WebRTC. This could have led to memory corruption and a potentially exploitable crash.


    #CVE-2020-12392: Arbitrary local file access with 'Copy as cURL'

    Reporter Ophir LOJKINE
    Impact moderate

    The 'Copy as cURL' feature of Devtools' network tab did not properly escape the HTTP POST data of a request, which can be controlled by the website. If a user used the 'Copy as cURL' feature and pasted the command into a terminal, it could have resulted in the disclosure of local files.


    #CVE-2020-12393: Devtools' 'Copy as cURL' feature did not fully escape website-controlled data, potentially leading to command injection

    Reporter David Yesland
    Impact moderate

    The 'Copy as cURL' feature of Devtools' network tab did not properly escape the HTTP method of a request, which can be controlled by the website. If a user used the 'Copy as cURL' feature and pasted the command into a terminal, it could have resulted in command injection and arbitrary command execution.
    Note: this issue only affects Firefox on Windows operating systems.


    #CVE-2020-12395: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 76 and Firefox ESR 68.8

    Reporter Mozilla developers and community
    Impact critical

    Mozilla developers and community members Alexandru Michis, Jason Kratzer, philipp, Ted Campbell, Bas Schouten, André Bargull, and Karl Tomlinson reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 75 and Firefox ESR 68.7. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.


  9. ff v76.0

    05. may 2020



    • With today’s release, Firefox strengthens protections for your online account logins and passwords, with innovative approaches to managing your accounts during this critical time:

      • Firefox displays critical alerts in the Lockwise password manager when a website is breached;
      • If one of your accounts is involved in a website breach and you've used the same password on other websites, you will now be prompted to update your password. A key icon identifies which accounts use that vulnerable password.
      • Automatically generate secure, complex passwords for new accounts across more of the web that are easily saved right in the browser;
      • You have been able to access and see your saved passwords under Logins and Passwords easily under the main menu. If your device happens to be shared among your family or roommates, the latest update helps to prevent casual snooping over your shoulder. If you don’t have a master password set up for Firefox, Windows and macOS now requires a login to your operating system account before showing your saved passwords.
    • Picture-in-Picture allows you to multitask, the small video window following along no matter what you are doing on your computer, across different applications and even workspaces. Now, when you are ready to focus on the video, a double click can take the small window into full screen. Double click again to reduce the size again.

    • Firefox now supports Audio Worklets that will allow more complex audio processing like VR and gaming on the web; and is being adopted by some of your favorite software programs.

      • With this change, you can now join Zoom calls on Firefox without the need for any additional downloads.
    • WebRender continues its roll out to more Firefox for Windows users, now available by default on modern Intel laptops with a small screen (<= 1920x1200) for improved graphics rendering.





    • Two updates to the address bar improve its usability and visibility:

      • The shadow around the address bar field is reduced in width when a new tab is opened;
      • The bookmarks toolbar has expanded slightly in size to improve its surface area for touchscreens.


    Developer Information

    • Testing mobile interactions using DevTools’ Responsive Design Mode now mimics the device behavior for handling double-tap to zoom. This builds on previous improvements to correctly rendering meta-viewport tags, allowing developers to optimize their sites for Firefox for Android without a device.

    • Double-clicking table headers in DevTools’ network request table now resizes the column width to fit the content, making it easier to expand the important data.

    • WebSocket inspection now supports ActionCable message preview, adding to the list of automatically formatted protocols like socket.io, SignalR, WAMP, etc.



    • Audio playback is currently not working when running the 32-bit Windows version of Firefox from a network drive. This will be addressed in an upcoming future Firefox release.

  10. i have different browsers installed/portable

  12. ublock v1.26.2

    gorhill released this

    9 days ago


    No code change since 1.26.0.

    The sole purpose of this release is to ensure an up to date version of EasyList is shipped as part of the package.

    An obsolete version of EasyList was shipped with uBO 1.26.0 and this was causing Google fonts to be unduly blocked everywhere after installing uBO for the first time. The issue arose as a result of the cname-uncloaking feature and thus affected only the Firefox version of uBO.

    Though forcing an update of filter lists would solve the issue, Google fonts should not be blocked out of the box without having to force an update of filter lists.
