I'm on Firebird right now too, I absolutely love it. It's as lightweight as can be yet still fully functional. Big change from my days as a Winblows user running IE.

I haven't tried Thunderbird yet though. I'm going through Ximian Evolution, so I'm covered there.

I installed flash with no problem After you install Firebird, on the bookmark toolbar there is a Plug-in FAQ. Just follow the directions. Basically you download and open up a flash package and copy a couple of files. How simple is that?

The plug-in FAQ saved my sanity. By all means look at it! It makes life a lot easier.
