After updating to Mojave yesterday, Flash has been going crazy and has broken at least one app that I rely daily on for teaching. The installer keeps popping up hourly or so, telling me to update. When I go to update, it is always the same version I have - listed above. When I finish the install, and use the tool for checking my version, Adobe says I am up to date.
I rely on an app called Camtwist which is a video switcher, for my online classroom in Safari. The app works just fine, it can access the camera just fine outside of Safari, but then when I enter my classroom (which runs on Flash), it cannot communicate with the camera app any longer.
When I use the app with Chrome - which uses a different type of Flash - I am able to access the camera. Unfortunately this is not an option as Chrome is not compatible with my online classroom.
The developer of CamTwist examined my logs and my system and determined that this is a problem with Flash and Apple states this may be a problem with how Flash is communicating with their new graphics - Metal. They changed from Open GL to Metal with the Mojave update.
Any insight that could be provided would be extremely helpful. I have run the gamut of troubleshooting, installing, uninstalling, rebooting, and changing settings with both Apple and with the software developer and the problem seems to lie with the Flash version that Safari runs on.
I tried to find a support phone or chat as I do pay monthly for CC as well, but for a Flash issue my only option seems to be this forum.

Let me recap and make sure I understand:
Almost forgot, here are the links for the uninstaller and the installer.
