Mozilla has unveiled a plan to phase out support for Flash content in its Firefox browser. In August, when the organization releases Firefox 48, it will begin blocking Flash supercookies and fingerprinting files. It plans to add to the list of blocked files slowly over time until the first part of 2017, when users will have to click if they want to play Flash content.

According to Mozilla, the plan is "expected to reduce Flash crashes and hangs by up to 10 percent."

Google's Chrome browser has blocked Flash content in a similar way since September of last year.
