Hi, I installed flash-plugin (NPAPI?) from the adobe repo on a freshly installed and upgraded Fedora 27 but flash appears to don't work. Is it disabled on puropose or totally unsupported now? It's for listening music from http://rtrfm.com.au Cheers

I just listened some music from the website you linked on f26 with firefox 57. Maybe you have to allow decoding DRM content in preferences.

I actually have but it is disabled in firefox. Your site works without it. If you want flash working on firefox you must install freshplayerplugin.x86_64 0.3.7-1.fc26. Test it here after restarting firefox: test flash

@fcomida, I don't know why that site is not working for me without flas.. the icon turns into playing one when I click it but no sound. Sound is working on my system

Not completely. The update information says:

Removed support for Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI) plugins other than Flash. Silverlight, Java, Acrobat and the like are no longer supported.

After read outdated answers here... You can use adobe flash without problem in Firefox 57 (quantum); you only need put "enable ...ever" in "shokwave flash" ; only write in your browser... about:addons

Also you can install freshplayerplugin available in rpmfusion or unitedrpms... but also you need put "enable.. ever"
