I installed Flash on my Samsung S 8 Plus and did everything, I could, to activate to no avail. Will Firefox Android allow the use of Flash, as Chrome does not.

As you probably know, Adobe has not supported the Android version of Flash Player since last version released September 10 2013.

I know that but, I can still use it in Firefox for Windows. I thought perhaps, Firefox would permit it, as it does conditionaly, for Windows.

That's not a valid comparison. Firefox limits access to Flash which is fully supported for Windows by Adobe. Adobe just doesn't offer an up to date version of Flash for Android so Firefox doesn't have any option to offer to support it.

Mozilla is looking to drop support of the old EOL Flash Player Plugin for Androd.

For reading as Bugzilla is not a discussion forum like here. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=etiquette.html

Bug 1381916 Remove support for plugins (flash)
