the various plugins.

Have you submitted a bug report (with specific URLs , the plugin
version, and the firefox version, as well as the linux distro name and
version) to the plugin developers?

Agreed, I have had various minor complications concerning flash compatibility across different versions of flash/firefox. I can't think of a time where it wasn't a matter of a simple version update to resolve. Flash 8 was a big sticking point in particular, since it's release lagged behind windows. Linux seems to be caught up now and Adobe appears to be pouring resources into linux development...imho this is all much better than dealing with quicktime.

Before you get into recompiling things/adding flags, I'd suggest downloading flash 9 and trying it out - if you haven't already.
