Description

Maybe now it's impossible to enable Flash in Tor browser and to use Tor combining other web browsers and softwares without Tor browser. It's very unconvenient for me, and maybe, for some others.

I live in South Korea. The South Korean government blocks some websites such as websites related with porns, prostitution, gambling, illegal drugs, guns, pro-North Korean propaganda and so on. In this country, however, there's no law to punish people who accesss those websites bypassing the block list. Of course, if those do something illegal using those website, they'll punished by law, but access itself is not illegal. The government is just delaying and hindering it.

So, for most of South Koreans, only bypassing the block list is needed and perfect anonymity isn't needed. Formerly, I used Tor enabling Flash and combining other softwares, but it looks impossible now.

Of course, I know people in some countries need perfect anonymity and Tor combining other software is unsafe. For some others, current restrictions using Tor might be OVERPROTECTIVE.

Please let users decide to take risks or not. I want to enable Flash in Tor Browser and use Tor combining other softwares :(

Not sure why you think that's not possible. Anyway, it is working for me. If you enter "about:addons" in your URL bar and select the plugins tab you can enable the Flash plugin.
