If you finally decide to uninstall it, the notification includes the "Uninstall" button for that.

The notification reminds that support for the Flash Player component will be over on December 31, 2020. Also, the Flash content will be blocked from running in Flash Player beginning January, 2020.

As you may remember, Microsoft has also issued a Flash removal update. It is KB4577586. The patch can be downloaded from the Windows Update catalog. It is titled as Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player for Windows <version here>, and is also available for Windows Server editions.

After performing the update, the Flash Player can no longer be installed. As Microsoft describes it, it would then only work with a system restore point or a backup created.

Finally, interested users can manually download the official Flash uninstaller tool from this link.

Firefox 84.0 is the last version to support Adobe Flash. Firefox will drop Adobe Flash support on January 26, 2021 with version 85. Adobe Flash is now the only NPAPI plugin that Firefox currently supports. Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome will also drop Flash support starting with Chromium version 88 which is coming on January 2021.
