 SWF fix for Firefox 55
So, Firefox v55 has an issue with not wanting to load downloaded SWF files. This is a right pain for those who play Flash games. Found a solution for this issue on another forum, solution is as follows:

UPDATE: Solution found to fix Firefox problem.

There is a new security setting in Firefox 55 that supersedes everything else. Only SWF files retrieved on http:// or https:// addresses are played (not file://, ftp://, etc.). If you want to revert to the previous behavior:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste plug*ht and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the plugins.http_https_only preference to switch the value from true to false

Enjoy your offline SWF experience.

Thanks to Raigner on the Fenoxo forums.
The most important lesson I learned from AD&D is this: Trolls are best killed with fire.
