    Step 2:
    Select AddOns in the menu to open the AddOns overview. Alternatively, you can get there by entering “about:addons” (without quotation marks) in the address bar or using the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+A.

    Step 3:
    Look for “Shockwave Flash” within the installed plugins. You may scroll down a bit to find it in case you have a couple of plugins installed.

    In case that you do not find the plugin it is likely that it is not yet installed. Before moving on with step 4 you need to install the plugin. Here you get to the download: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.

    Step 4:
    Click on the 3 dots icon of the “Shockwave Flash“ plugin
