As expected, the issue noted below has been resolved by Adobe with the release of an updated version of Flash, which is no longer blocked by Firefox by default. In configurations that allow automatic updates, this new version will be applied automatically. In other configurations, the user will be required to update their Flash plugin to the newest version in order to have it enabled by default.

The Adobe Flash Player® plugin is currently deactivated by default for Mozilla Firefox’s latest update, version 39. In a statement released 7/14/15, Mozilla stated that this deactivation is temporary, and will be reversed pending Adobe’s release of updates to address known security issues. This is expected to be a temporary measure as Adobe has already released at least two patches on the afternoon of 07/14/2015.
Many of Findly SkillCheck’s assessments (typing and data entry tests, technology simulations, role simulations) require the use of the Adobe Flash Player plugin to operate. If a test taker with the newest version of Firefox attempts to run a simulation test where this feature has been deactivated, he/she will see a screen similar to the following:
I order to continue testing, the user must either allow and enable this feature to continue in Firefox, or attempt the test in either Chrome, Safari, or Internet Explorer.
Again, we expect this to be a temporary issue, and will post an update to this article when it has been reversed by Mozilla.
