Flash is a necessity! If a new user is trying Firebird and it get that page with "get the plug-in" it will just close firebird and return to IE. If the end-user is to became the target to Mozilla Organization, this is a priority. IE is always the comparasion standard, so do what IE do at least. The remaining goodness and best implementation will retain the user. My god, not all users are geeks! And remember that IE with its monopoly has that very easy plugin install, just hit a "yes". Now thar Mozilla is a organization it should reach a agreement with Macromedia over this distribution issue. Macromedia wants flash everywhere, so that dont should be very difficult to come by.
