We wanted to let you know of an update that Mozilla Firefox made on Tuesday, March 7th 2017 that directly affects Silverlight Users.
Since Seraphim runs on the Silverlight Plugin, this is a very important change to understand.
What's the update?
Effective on Tuesday, March 7th Mozilla Firefox made an update to consumer versions of Mozilla Firefox that no longer supports the Silverlight Plugin (along with several other plugins). This will block applications that use Java, Silverlight and QuickTime on the consumer version of Firefox.
Firefox provides an ESR release - or Extended Support Release. This allows Firefox to put out things for consumers, while also supporting corporations that have mission-critical apps that run-on Silverlight.
I'm a Firefox User, how do I continue to use Seraphim after Mozilla (parent company of Firefox) stops supporting plugins?
Simple, install this software, by clicking the appropriate link below to point your copy of Firefox to the same code that corporations use. The download should begin automatically.
Install the 32-bit version of Firefox for either Windows or Mac.
Once downloaded, run the installer, and step through the setup wizard. At the end of the Wizard, you will be able to launch Firefox as you always have been able to.
Your bookmarks will be intact and you will notice no major changes. That's it! In all, should take about 2 minutes from start to finish.
How do I know it worked?
When Firefox starts up, on the right side of the browser window you'll see a "chevron" or "hamburger menu" you can click that shows a menu. Click the "?" at the bottom of that screen. Click the last menu item called "About Firefox."
You'll see this banner stating that the ESR capability is installed.
