Flash-aid obsolete firefox add on


Does anyone have this add-on on their computer? I was wondering as this is now obsolete whether they would send it to me. This former firefox add-on worked, and made it easy to install the latest flash.

Is this what you're looking for? http://www.ubuntugeek.com/flash-aid-firefox-add-on.html
It appears to be only available for Ubuntu so I haven't used it.

Many thanks for your reply jdkaye, I've looked at the ubuntugeek.com webpage and the link in it takes you to the Firefox add on page explaining it's been withdrawn. This why I enquired if anyone had it on their computer.

I guess that's your answer. It has been withdrawn by the author. Is there any particular reason you feel the need for this add-on? What problem do you have that it would solve?

This add on was an installers lazy way of installing or updating the Adobe Flashplayer and firefox plugin. It also set the default flashplayer, all this it did automatically. I had this on Linux Mint 15 Firefox. I have recently installed Linux Mint 16 Petra KDE4 desktop.

Since Adobe's flashplayer for linux has been stopped at ver. 11.2 I can understand why the author discontinued flash-aid. There's no real point to it now.
