Catalina will not open the Flash Player plugin "because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software need to be updated"

Hi @Watney, I am looking into this. I will let you know when I hear something back. Thanks - Elliot

@Elliot Kirk Just thought I'd let you know that I ended up doing a clean install of the OS, reinstalled Edge Insider Dev, and the error message disappeared. (And, for anyone who thinks that Macs "just work", the Catalina upgrade hosed my iMac. )

Hi @Watney, I have heard back from the owners of this code. Here is what they say:
I found that MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) has stopped Adobe Flash Player by default.
Please use steps below to re-enable the Flash Player
If these steps work for you or others, please let us know so that we can get this information on our help site and into the hands of our customer support agents so that we can help the next person who hits this. Thanks - Elliot

It turns out that there was also a signing problem, and we have updated out content release pipeline to prevent problems like this from occurring again. If you see issues like this again, please let us know. Thanks - Elliot

@Elliot Kirk , this is now fixed by updating the Flash component in Edge. Just go to edge:components, and update Flash. Once it's updated to the latest version, this issue goes away. No need to install Flash system wide (for Safari). Thanks.

I'm new to Apple. Just got a Catalina O.S. desktop, version 10.15.4. Without Adobe Flash, I can't watch the Met Opera & San Francisco Opera streaming performances. Reading your post, below, I'm flummoxed by "Anaheim settings." What/where are they exactly? I thought I downloaded Adobe Flash, per your instructions, but can't figure out where to find Anaheim.
