Flash will be dead and buried by 2021

Im surprised! (Hi to Moonchild, Darleks and Moonbat)
Firefox kills Flash - if it gets opened

My Firefox updates still kill Flash working on Palemoon
(Firefox - when started, writes creates its profile folder under ~/.mozilla/Firefox)
Its a nightmare :( :-(
It redirects - Puts shortcut in (soft link?)
Ive done this ~14 times this year - but Im still playing my game Miramagia

What works for me is
1) Not opening Firefox
2) If Firefox is opened - Then rename / delete local file ~/.mozilla - so it is recreated
3) Open Palemoon

When are you guys going to choose a new folder for the home for flash?
Love Lins <3

We have no control over where Flash is installed (it's installed in the system, not the browser)
If Firefox kills flash from the system or otherwise cripples NPAPI use system-wide, then that is a serious issue you should take up with Mozilla!
