Sorry Mark,
Still no sign of Flash Player in there.
All it says is
OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

the other command still shows
don@ldwatson ~ $ dpkg -l | grep flash
don@ldwatson ~ $

Ah right, my mistake .. I forgot to tell you to enable the "partner" repo first .. sorry about that :-[

Go to

Menu > Preferences > Software & Updates

Choose the "Other Software" tab

Put a tick in the box labelled "Canonical Partners" .. you'll probably be prompted to enter your password.

When there's a tick in "Canonical Partners", click the "Close" button .. then the "Reload" button.

Once that Window has closed, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin adobe-flash-properties-gtk
now see if you get output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash
and if Firefox shows Shockwave Flash

and if Pixlr works.

Hi Mark,
I get this
don@ldwatson ~ $ dpkg -l | grep flash
ii  adobe-flash-properties-gtk                    1:20171010.1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1                amd64        GTK+ control panel for Adobe Flash Player plugin
ii  adobe-flashplugin                             1:20171010.1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1                amd64        Adobe Flash Player plugin
don@ldwatson ~ $

tools>addons>plugins show Shockwave Flash 27.0r0

When I go to Graphics>Editor by Pixlr it opens with the usual page and when I choose Open Image from Computer it says that Flash has crashed

Okay this seems to be an issue with Firefox 56 because I've downloaded the Firefox 57 beta and Pixlr works perfectly with it. So until they release 57 about the only way around this I can see would be to install Google Chrome, then rebuild the Pixlr SSB using Chrome as the backend.

Do you want instructions ?

[EDIT]

Well there is another option, which would be to add the Firefox Next PPA, which will install the Firefox 57 beta ?

Thanks Mark,
I can use Gimp in the meantime. I can wait until Firefox 57 is released.
I also have access to a Win 10 computer and can manipulate pictures there.
I will mark this solved if that is ok ?

EDIT I am finding some odd problems with this site at the minute.
When I post a reply it takes me back to the first page and there is a banner headline in red saying someone has posted another comment would I like to review my post ?? Also it sometimes takes me back to a different page from the normal one ??
