    Is there Any alternative to Macromedia Flash player For Firefox?

    Something that can't set persistent cookies, doesn't require a website to change the privacy settings, can't access the microphone and
    camera, and contains no unique identifiers?

    Firefox browser, Windows ME

    I'd like to be able to look at some of the political satire animations turning up on the web, but don't want to compromise my privacy or
    safety to do it.

    Thanks

    The only thing I know of is the flashblocker. But this can disable and enable flash at your will, and thats about all.

    You can change the Flash privacy settings and access to webcam etc. Right click the flash animation and select settings. I don't allow flash in Firefox, when I really want to use Flash (rarely) I then switch to IE.

    I'm using SeaMonkey but guess this apply to Frifox to. It's not so much about security, but annoyance why I have Flash disabled
    most of the time. There is to much flash crap (e.g. ads) used on sites that I don't care to see. The abuse of flash is also today what in the 90's was abuse of animated gif's for no other reason than to show off
    (hey, look what I did)!

    BTW, there is addons that makes it possible to easy disable and enable when it suites you. That's what I do. You don't need to use IE when you wish to look at flash on sites.

    I'm using the Preference Toolbar with several useful features, the flash block is just one of them, and you can customize it to suite your needs.

    With the flashblock extension you will see a placeholder everywhere where a flash animation is placed. As I understand it, clicking on the
    placeholder will open the animation.

    With the prefbar extension you enable flash and reload the page if you like to see the animations on the page.
