First impressions of Firefox

I just installed Firefox!

Looks good! Runs fast and smooth, too.
(I was originally using Opera, but then it died again, hard. Wouldn't launch. At the time, I was too busy/lazy/whatever to reinstall it, so I switched to a who-knows-how-old build of Mozilla that was on this machine. That worked well enough, but after a while, it seemed to bog down my system.)

The good: Yay, it displays the new LiveJournal update page properly instead of munging the display like Mozilla did!

The bad: How the hell do you install Flash on this thing? I want my Homestar Runner, dammit!
Also, why does the download window keep ignoring the setting to close when all downloads are done?
