Flash plugin is present but doesn't work
Plugin is installed, at vivaldi://about I can see:
Vivaldi 1.10.845.3 (Official Build) (64-bit) Flash 18.104.22.168 /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer/PepperFlashPlayer.plugin Command Line /Applications/Vivaldi.app/Contents/MacOS/Vivaldi --always-authorize-plugins --disable-translate --enable-blink-features=ResizeObserver --ppapi-flash-path=/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/PepperFlashPlayer/PepperFlashPlayer.plugin --flag-switches-begin --allow-nacl-socket-api=* --disable-accelerated-video-decode --enable-experimental-web-platform-features --enable-fast-unload --enable-quic --enable-zero-copy --top-chrome-md=material-hybrid --enable-features=PreferHtmlOverPlugins --flag-switches-end
Still what I see on http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/ is
Is that a bug or some kind of misconfiguration?
Nah, everything should be fine.
Test here if you want to make sure.
@luetage on that page I get
Which Flash Player Version Do You Have Installed?
You do not have Flash player installed.
That's strange, because your "about vivaldi" shows the correct path to the flash player.
I see in your command line that you have many flags enabled. Maybe reset the flags and try again.
So the culprit is Webpages/Plugins/Flash plugin setting.
If it is set to "Detect and Allow Important Flash Content Only" - there is no way to make a particular flash working by clicking.
Which I consider to be a bug as user actions should have priority over whatever browser engine considers to be important content.
@luetage it's a bit offtop, but how do I submit a bug report? Is this post + comments enough or additional actions are required?
But this is not a bug, you just have to change this setting. I thought "allow flash" is actually the default, at least I never changed it on my install and this is what I have.

That setting should not prevent from using flash plugin on click. User intention should have higher priority, especially considering setting is about "non-important", i.e. it's not a "strict" setting.
