I am trying to give a flash application access to accessibility features. The plug in lives in Macintosh HD > Library > Internet Plug-ins. I cannot drag and drop this into the Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility. Adding firefox app doesnt seem to work even though the plug in seems like it should be a child process. In activity monitor when the particular flash app is running the process name is "Firefox Plugin Process (Shockwave Flash)".

How do I enable this? How can I add items in the Accessibility menu without having to drag and drop?

Using OS X Mavericks 10.9.


Try dropping /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app to the preference pane instead.

When I tried opening a page that uses Flash in Firefox, ps -ef|grep -i flash contained a line like 501 28715 28710 0 4:44AM ?? 0:01.01 /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Flash Player.plugin -greomni /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/omni.ja -appomni /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/browser/omni.ja -appdir /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/browser 28710 gecko-crash-server-pipe.28710 org.mozilla.machname.157869410 plugin.
