Has anyone else seen in Mac OS where every time you go to a new Flash site, the Flash settings panel comes up with "Allow" and "Deny," and it freezes the browser window/tab. No amount of clicking on "Allow" or "Deny" makes it go away, ever. I've reinstalled Flash several times, nothing fixes it. help, please?
This happens in the latest version of all browsers in Mac OS - Safari, Chrome, Firefox (I have all as I'm a Web Developer and need them for testing).
I'm on a Mac Pro, 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5, 16 GB RAM, Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5, Adobe Flash version 184.108.40.206 both NPAPI & PPAPI (as I have all browser for testing), Safari v.10.1.1 (12603.2.4), Google Chrome v.59.0.3071.109 (Official Build) (64-bit), and Firefox v.54.0 (64-bit).
Any help that could be offered would be most appreciated.

This is Flash Player's anti-clickjacking logic being overzealous. When we show permission dialogs, we need to know that they're not obscured by other content on the page. Because we're a plug-in, and not the host browser, this problem is ugly.
In essence, what we do is sample the pixels where the dialog is displayed and we check to see that they match our expectations about what *should* be there. This is imperfect (and fixing it tends to be a game of whack-a-mole -- we make a change for one configuration, and it breaks three others), and it's particularly problematic if the dialog pops up over the top of anything moving, like video.
Hope that helps!
