When I launch the file, it automatically starts downloading McAfee with the update. Also, your advice to do a clean install was a good idea. If you’ve opted into our automatic update services, you will receive a notification within seven days of a regularly scheduled update (eg. 11.4). In that case, Flash Player will be silently updated on your system in 30 days or when a zero day vulnerability fix is made available, whichever comes first. From the firefox plug-in updater, the installer downloads.
Additionally, Adobe has issued a warning that users “immediately uninstall Flash Player” to “protect their systems”. For people who want to run Flash content, a site known as Newgrounds has used Ruffle to serve older animated content. The Internet Archive website, that is a known place for archived webpages, provides a dedicated Flash library with over 2,400 items.
In 2010, Steve Jobs published his famous ‘Thoughts on Flash’ open letter which outlined his and Apple’s issues with the Flash platform. The letter began a public feud between Jobs and Adobe’s CEO, Shantanu Narayen. The fallout of the letter had widespread impacts and the following year, Adobe announced that it would no longer develop its Flash Player plug-in for mobile web browsers. It’s 2021, and with the new year, we’re officially seeing the end of Adobe Flash.

That’s AFTER I’m asked about installing the McAffee cr@pware, which is on by default ePSXe . @AnotherAGladys – You can turn off notifications by going to the Flash Player control panel and selecting the advanced tab, then clicking "Never check for updates ". However, I’d recommend leaving the "Allow Adobe to install updates " selected, and then just ignore/close any Flash Player update notification you receive in the future.
