Not true. I just upgraded to FF 82.0.3 and confirmed that Flash keeps
working as usual. adobe-flashplugin was updated a couple of hours ago,


There are (have always been) a lot of misconceptions floating around
with respect to Flash, and flashplugin-installer and browser-plugin-
freshplayer-pepperflash were certainly removed prematurely. The EOL date
is 2020-12-31.

Anyway, this is as it is, and the remaining Flash packages should of
course be dropped during the hirsute cycle. Replacing Flash packages in
stable releases with dummies is something which also should be
considered IMO.
