I have the plugins 3.3.0.32 - no help. Sierra latest Safari Latest. Foscam seems to have no ability to fix this. WTF a plugin anyway? 2003 called, they want their technology back.

I have somewhat of a workaround. Buy new camera from different vendor. Install, works without plugins. Post experience to Facebook. Evangelize "do not expect actual resolution support from Foscam" and "forced to use totally old and unsecured plugin technology". IF that is what people are in the market for; they will love Foscam.

I guess I just have to give up and rack it up to another tech company stealing money. (they have my money, I have trash; I consider that stealing).

Yes, Plugin does not work, I just bought 3 Foscam camera's. I will send them back and buy other brand that works with Mac OSX. I advice anyone on Mac to stay away from Foscam. The quality is very good but just does not work on Mac.

I found this fix online and it worked for me.

You need to uninstall the old plugin before loading the new one.  You can find it in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins: it’s the bundle named fsIPCamReg.bundle.
Quit Safari, delete it, and you’re all set.

What a crock these Foscam cameras are!!!!
They can't get the plugin fixed for MAC, they won't respond to support requests and to top it off, if they even bother to respond here, they give us solutions they think will work and then vanish into the ether!

Never again will I buy a Foscam camera and you can be assured I will NEVER recommend them!

Hi UncleBuck,

Your reaction is completely understandable and comprehensible. I have now also given up with my foscams under a current Firefox work.

To the reaction or rather non-reaction of pages Foscam one has to write nothing more ... this is probably meaningful enough.

Greetings - Jan

After visiting my customer site where these cameras quit working I removed all 8 of these cameras and through them in the recycle bin. The software from Foscam is an absolute piece of shit that is totally outdated and not supported ANYWHERE without installing a browser that is months or years out of date. Foscam had years to address this issue and instead kept their head up somewhere expecting this issue to go away. I will never, ever use Foscam for any of my customers in the future and will go to great lengths to let everyone else know what a poor product this is. Even the company that used to sell this product in the US (www.foscam.us) put out an email and web page detailing that this was an inferior product. I think that says it all.

Foscam basically has their head up their ass and has had months to fix this with HTML5 but refuses. I will not tolerate this piece of crap software and refuse to buy their shit.

Foscam say

This solution was a workaround due to your crappy software and has not worked since Revision 54 or so of Firefox which was months ago. Stop posing solutions that DO NOT WORK. FIX YOUR SOFTWARE TO USE HTML5 AND NOT USE PLUGINS. I am on a mission to tell everyone to not buy Foscam. Even Foscam-us put out an email stating that your cameras were inferior. How is that for an endorsement. They will also give anyone with a Foscam camera a huge discount to buy Amcrest and toss the Foscam camera crap in the recycle bin.

Foscam
Step 1: Pull head out of ass
Step 2: Apologize to users that you did not use the many months you had to rewrite the browser code
Step 2: Rewrite software to not use NPAPI plugins and use HTML5
