Because, as I said earlier this thread:

   I do try it every couple of weeks to see if it works, but the best it
   gets is two-three web sites and then the seg fault. I realize until I
   sit down with a stack trace I haven't earned the right to complain, so I
   haven't yet, figuring it'll be important enough someday to someone
   clueful enough.  Or, Macromedia will some day lighten up and let Mozilla
   include it as part of the web browser by default.  Or something.

...and that I've got nowhere near the chops to do anything useful with a 
stack trace that I'm sure others do.  I thought I'd pipe up in response to 
Ruben's message to provide a data point.  Am I the only one for whom 
Firefox and www/flashplugin-firefox doesn't work?
