Adobe Flash Player not working properly - website info

Unread post by inrobert » 2019-03-17, 22:58

I use a website to fill up interactive forms, for example tax forms. Recently it stopped working (it definitely did work on v27 and I think it did work on v 28.1 and v28.2). The website shows a message, that says web browser is not working properly with Adobe Flash Player. I tried Edge and it works.
Here is the website: https://www.druki-formularze.pl/. You can click on any of the orange buttons saying "Wypełnij" (means "fill up") and you should see the problem. Direct link to one of the forms: https://secure.fillup.pl/online/fillUp/index.php?&formId=4814290&partner=df.

I'm using Pale Moon 28.4.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Home 64-bit, Adobe Flash Player 32.0.0.156 (visible in Pale Moon plugins and in Windows installed applications). I haven't noticed any other Flash problems on my computer.

For some reason this website dislikes the Firefox/60.9 slice in the default Pale Moon UA string. You can use something like this SSUAO to work around this issue: general.useragent.override.secure.fillup.pl;Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:60.9) Goanna/4.1 PaleMoon/28.4.0.

Thanks to your answer I found another workaround: in advanced options switch user agent to native.

Keep in mind that some websites (for example http://mapy.geoportal.gov.pl/) will refuse to work with the native UA. Anyway, good to know it now works for you.

Yeah, I will change to native only for this website. I guess in some time user agent will be modified in Pale Moon or the website will be fixed.

Unfortunately, this doesn't happen very often.
Webmasters that resort to UA sniffing seems to be a lazy buch of people.
Over the years, I've reported many issues related to this sloppy practice, but to no use! :(
