Readd support for adobe flash player

Flash support appears to have been removed from the browser, and I would like it to be reimplemented as brave is not an official chromium fork.

Adobe has stopped supporting it, as has all the browsers. It would be a huge security hole if it were re-implemented. But as with any open source code, you’re free to fork the Brave source code.

That’s impossible. From Adobe’s website:

Adobe strongly recommends immediately uninstalling Flash Player. To help secure your system, Adobe blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021.

There are old flash versions without the self disabling code available, and there is an archive of installers on

I do not care if adobe does not like this, and the browser can always be hardened to prevent unauthorized access to flash.

Brave could consider adding support for Ruffle ( or a similar Flash player emulator for legacy content. Particularly if properly sandboxed.

As for Flash itself, the product is no longer supported and it would be a security backdoor potentially for every user.

-1 for flash…please no :frowning:
