There are sites, even banks, that use flash for menus.
You can not even work with them if you block flash.

You do online banking with a bank (i.e. you trust it)
that uses flash for its online banking web pages?

What do you expect me to do? I have to live.

Not to expect it would do so, but ask the bank to provide you with a Windows license. It might get it to understand that embedding proprietary features in its web site causes customers to need non-free software (Windows, not Flash or Acroread) that they otherwise have no need for, or that their hardware cannot support. Come spring, supported Windows versions will have hardware requirements exceeding the capability of many perfectly useful computers. Inducing people to need new PCs just to use a bank site is environmentally abhorrent policy.
