Setup:

Firefox: Version  52.0.1 (32-Bit) latest Version

Windows 7

 

Hi,

i have a problem to start / lunch the online demos silverlight from telerik. URL : http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/

 

I get always this screen:

Welcome to the Silverlight Controls Demo Site.
To view this demo, you need to install Microsoft Silverlight Plugin .
Don’t worry, it’s easy and only takes a second. or Go to Telerik.com Home Page Go to Silverlight Product Overview

 

I already downloaded and installed the newest Silverlight Plugin and get back to the page, but its still asking me to install the Microsoft Silverlight Plugin.

I also tested this with a different Browser (Google Chrome), but it looks like its independent of the Browser.

 

Thank you in advise.

Hi Dirk,

Thank you for contacting us.

At the begging of this year, Mozilla announced that with the latest versions of Firefox 52 the support for NPAPI plugins has ended. That is why you are always getting this message. You can take a look at the following Blog Post for further information. 

You can consider downloading (at the end of the mentioned blog post) the ESR (Extended Support Release) of Firefox 52 wich still support such plugins until 2018.

Hello Dinko and thank you for your reply,

i installed the ESR version and it works fine.

But as far as i understood does the support of Microsoft Silverlight is already adopted and works fine.

Is the telerik website not using the Web APIs yet ?

Hi Dirk,

Running Silverlight application is depending on the browser which you use. Basically, the latest version of the most browsers has stopped their support for Silverlight application. For example, Chrome has stopped its support for the framework. You can use Internet Explorer browser which still supports Silverlight application.
