How-To: Enable Flash in Firefox Mobile 1.0 [N900]
The good news, first: Firefox Mobile 1.0 was been released for Maemo 5, and it brings a couple of sweet improvements to the table. Flash, however, is not one of them. It’s disabled by default, but it’s pretty easy to get it back with these simple steps.
You’ll need the latest version of Firefox Mobile 1.0. Get it from the Mozilla Catalog repository (which should have been added with the Maemo PR 1.0 update) via Application Manager.
1. In the address bar, type in about:config. You should get a warning message that asks you to confirm that you want to mess with the config options. Click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button.
2. You should be see the config box, with a search bar on top that says “Filter”. Type “plugin” into this bar and you should see a couple of options popup. The two we’re interested in here are the plugin.default_plugin_disabled and plugin.disable options: tap on each one (or use the arrow keys) and hit the enter button. This will change the value from true to false. Make sure you do this to both options!
3. Close Firefox and reopen it.
4. Enjoy your new Flash experience!
