Playing Flash content using browsers (Windows Only)

There are still a few Firefox based browsers that will support older plugins like Flash. If you’re tired of those JavaScript windows opening then follow these steps:

First, uninstall any versions of Flash still remaining on your system.

Next, download the last version of Flash (32.0.0.371) without the kill switch code using The Wayback Machine. It’s a large file since it includes versions and tools for all platforms

Then, find and install the NPAPI version of the Flash setup file.

  • flashplayer32_0r0_371_win.exe
  • flashplayer32_0r0_371_win.msi

Either file should work on Windows

Next, download and install one of the following browsers:

All of these are still regularly updated.

Finally, load your flash based content!

Note: Follow these steps at your own risk! I confirmed that Basilisk, Pale Moon and Waterfox work on Windows 10 with these steps. The browser list may be updated in the future.
