HTML 5 only version for SCORM export (not Flash)

I'm exporting an interactive Camtasia project as a SCORM 1.2 package for use inside Moodle.
Everything worked fine on Windows.
However, most people in our company will be accessing this on Linux using Firefox.
There seems to be an issue with the version of Firefox we have, Flash Player isn't working. It is kept at that version because we have a number of proprietary web tools that require that version. It is Firefox version 45.4.0
I understand it is supposed to recognize whether the browser supports Flash, and if not, switch to HTML5.
But right now it just gives an error asking to install the Flash Player.
So what I'm wondering, is if there is a way to just export the HTML5 version and not the Flash version.

Hi Andrew,

Newer versions of the TechSmith Smart Player should default to HTML5 first and then fallback to Flash. If you are unable to upgrade the version of Camtasia Studio you're using (to get the new Smart Player) you should still be able to make some changes to set Flash as the fallback.

I think you'll find this thread helpful:

If you can't get it working, open a ticket with our Technical Support at https://support.techsmith.com and they should be able to help you out.

Thanks Glenn,

So, I'm using Camtasia version 8.6.0, which should default to HTML5.
I noticed on Windows, where it's working, its using Flash, not HTML5.
I tried adding the code from the post you linked anyway:
TSC.playerConfiguration.setTechPreference("html5");

but it still defaults to Flash on Windows.
Also, it still says it needs the Flash Player when I try to view it in Linux.
