How to make Adobe Connect Meeting room open in browsers by enabling Flash in browser or by using the application for desktop.

To launch a meeting in the browser window, install and enable the Flash Player in your browser. If Flash Player is not installed or is disabled, Adobe Connect meeting room does not open in a browser. Instead, it prompts to install the Adobe Connect application.

Adobe Connect in Mozilla Firefox

Adobe Connect application for desktop does not launch when a meeting is launched from Flash-enabled Firefox 32-bit browser. For first-time users, Adobe Connect application does not get automatically installed when using 64-bit Firefox.

Use any one of the following workarounds:

  • Use a different browser.

  • Disable Flash in Firefox browser and then access the meeting URL.
