Re: Safari

With the introduction of Safari 12, Apple removed support for running most legacy NPAPI plug-ins, including Microsoft Silverlight, which is required to run FreeFlow Core in the Safari Browser.

FreeFlow Core continues to be supported on Safari 9.0.2 or higher up to and including Safari 11.1.2 on Mac OS X 10.9 or higher, as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0 and higher.

As an alternative, Mac users may also use FireFox ESR release 52.9 without the maintenance service as follows:

  1. Current Firefox users must change automatic update to: "Never check for updates."
  2. Uninstall or Remove the "Mozilla Maintenance Service" to prevent automatic updates.
  3. Install ESR release 52.9 and select “Custom Install.”
  4. When prompted, uncheck (do not select) the option to install maintenance service.
  5. Install ESR release 52.9 without the maintenance service.
  6. After install, but before rebooting, confirm that the update options is set to "Never check for updates.”
  7. Connect to the FreeFlow Core server and when prompted:

          - Activate Silverlight.

          - Select “Allow” and “Remember.”

During this period until FreeFlow Core support for Safari is reintroduced, ensure that you do not select the Firefox “Check for updates button,” and do not upgrade past ESR release 52.9.

Re: Safari

Three months have gone by and still no solution for current brower versions on Mac?!? Xerox is lagging behind the curve in addressing this issue. When will this be resolved? If Freeflow core is not being updated to match current software interface will it be discontinued?

Re: Safari

From What I understand Xerox has been looking at this for close to a year now.

This is not just a Safari issue as Silverlight is not being supported in MicorSofts new browser either so I beleave it is an end of life product so Xeox needs to find a replacment and FAST.

I am just in the process of converting from FF Process Manager to Core and I have a new Mac so I am kind of in a pickle out of the Gate.

Re: Safari

I'm being told Freeflow Core will be html5 based in future. The date I was given is August 5th. We shall see…
