No Plugins Dragon

I updated my Dragon browser to v42.2.2.138 and when I went to go check my plugins because flash wouldn’t work, there were only 2! How do I restore the plugins that disappeared… The only ones I have are Chromium PDF Viewer and Chromoting Viewer…

I don’t want to update my Chromium to v42 until I know this won’t happen to it.

Hi CrossClown,
Support for NPAPI plugins is now disabled by default for security reasons.

A temporary workaround is to enable NPAPI plugins is to type chrome://flags/#enable-npapi into the address bar and enter.
Select enable of the highlighted entry and relaunch the browser.

Note: The above workaround to enable NPAPI plugins is not recommended for security reasons and it will most likely be removed from version 45 and above (Estimate: September).

A better solution is to use PPAPI supported plugins.
For the Flash plugin, follow the steps below.

Using the following site.

  1. Select your operating system.
  2. Select FP 18 for Opera and Chromium-PPAPI.
  3. Close the browser and navigate to the recently download installer and execute.

Kind regards.
