Stop firefox from updating
The 2020 end-of-life timeline marks the end of a long run for Flash, once considered a critical plugin for running games, videos, and other web content.
However, Flash has been widely criticized for presenting a significant security risk, prompting multiple calls from media outlets to uninstall it as a safety measure.
In April 2010, Apple co-founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs famously blasted Flash, explaining why the tech giant would not support the plugin on its i OS devices."Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice," Jobs wrote.
"But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short."Forrester analyst Jeffery Hammond said in a blog post Jobs' decision was a big reason why we're seeing the end of Flash approaching.
Adobe is encouraging content creators to migrate anything running Flash to one of these open standards."Over time, we’ve seen helper apps evolve to become plugins, and more recently, have seen many of these plugin capabilities get incorporated into open web standards," said Adobe in a statement Tuesday.
"Today, most browser vendors are integrating capabilities once provided by plugins directly into browsers and deprecating plugins."Adobe says it will continue to update Flash through 2020, as companies roll out plans to migrate away from the plugin.
Mozilla has also announced that LG Electronics, ZTE, Huawei and TCL Corporation have committed to making Firefox OS devices.
In December 2013, new features were added with the 1.2 release, including conference calling, silent SMS authentication for mobile billing, improved push notifications, and three state settings for Do Not Track.
Thus, a Firefox OS app is essentially a website built using these three languages.

On the other hand, Android, similar to Microsoft Windows, has a dedicated path for every operation and functionality, i.e. So Android provides a broader set of controls and development options, as compared to what can be achieved using HTML, CSS and JS.
Firefox launched its first official device in Germany in 2014, which was an Alcatel One Touch Fire.
