Adobe will provide updates for 5 years for the existing version.
Firefox can adopt the Chrome API which is not specific to Chrome if
needed since it is not needed.  In 5 years, Flash probably wont be that
much relevant anyway.  Worrying about it now doesn't make sense.  If you
are a developer and  have a dependency on Flash, then move away from it.
