    Hello,

    My setup is as follows:

    Firefox 57.0.1
    Addon shockwave Flash is enabled

    When i open deezer, and i want to play a song, deezer complains that i need to install shockwave Flash.
    I am clueless.

    did you go to adobe.com, and download their rpm installer, installed it via dnf, and then once that is installed, you need to then do another dnf, installing flash-plugin ?

    yes,

    I even tried several other browsers, like opera,cyberfox and chromium.
    No luck with them too.

    The way I activated flash in firefox-57.0-2.fc27.x86_64 was through:

    Tools -> Addons -> Plugins

    where I could choose the option "Always activate" for Shockwave Flash. Before doing that, flash didn't run.

    I only use flash on Vivaldi
    Vivaldi.com

    When Opera cast off the original Presto layout engine and developers plus Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, a new browser arose from the ashes.

    Re: Enabling flash player in Firefox 57.0.1

    This has been solved.

    Solution:
    1- rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm
    2- rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
    3- dnf install flash-plugin alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl
    4- activate ( enable) the shockwave plugin in firefox by: Menu > addons > allways activate the shockwave addon
    5- restart browser.
