Customers who wish to continue using Firefox can install the Firefox ESR (Extended Service Release) 52.0 release, 32bit version: this version is expected to support NPAPI plugins and Java until May 2018.

Firefox ESR is a separate product, aimed at corporates who want a stable browser based on a particular base revision, with only security updates.

  Open in firefox: about:config 
- Right click : New boolean 
- Preference name: plugin.load_flash_only 
- Value: false
