Steps to reproduce

Web sites requiring Adobe Flash Player require reinstallation or permission enabled each time Edge is opened. The permissions shoe they are enabled in advanced settings but are not remembered in Edge. Fire Fox works OK and remembers the permissions for future sessions.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. Turning on Allow Adobe Flash Player in Edge Advanced Settings still requires you to grant permission to each separate website. This behavior is by design.
    If you click the Always Allow button which appears in the notification (screenshot attached), then your choice will be remembered for that website.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
