Microsoft Edge lets Facebook run Flash code behind users' backs [zdnet.com]
In its current version, Edge will allow Facebook to execute any Flash widget that has a dimension of over 398x298 pixels and is hosted on the https: //www.facebook.com and https: //apps.facebook.com domains. Most likely, Facebook is on Microsoft's Edge whitelist to support the social network's large collection of legacy Flash games.
For any other Flash widget on any other website, Edge will respect its default click-to-play policy, meaning websites are not allowed to execute Flash without users' permission, which usually means enabling Flash execution through an address bar icon.
