    Based upon this from post #1 I'd wonder why it's being updated:

    Good point. I'm surprised Adobe didn't give Flash the chop a lot earlier than it did.

    Updated in a newsletter today:
    Adobe has released on Tuesday the last update ever for its iconic Flash Player app, which the company plans to retire at the end of the year.

    "In the latest Flash Player update released yesterday, we updated our uninstall prompt language and functionality to encourage people to uninstall Flash Player before the end of life and to help make users aware that beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe will block Flash content from running," an Adobe spokesperson told ZDNet.
    The update follows through with changes Adobe announced earlier this year in June.
    At the time, Adobe said it planned to show prompts to all Flash users by the end of the year with a notification that the software will soon reach its planned end-of-life [EOL].
    The new update also brings an actual date to Flash's actual demise in the form of January 12, 2021 the date after which any type of Flash content won't run inside the Flash app.
    Skipping this last Flash update won't remove this "time bomb," however.
    Adobe told ZDNet that the killswitch code was added months before in previous releases and that this last Flash update only modifies the language used in the prompt that will ask users to uninstall the app.

    Same here, but it depends on the browser one is using.
    I use Firefox and it still works. But, no more support for Flash and it will no longer be updated by Adobe.
    Also, by the next version/update of Firefox, Flash will be dead and won't work. Like it won't work or already isn't working in most browsers.

    Hi,
    Firefox at least warns someone that wants to add the add-on that it is a security risk.

    Flash can still be used if using Firefox ESR (aka. 78.x ESR) instead of normal Firefox
    next major ESR release of Firefox (coming in summer 2021) will definitely drop flash support

    note to Brink: going to the "Adobe Flash Player WHQL Download page" link in your first post now redirects to Flash Player EOL page
