I went a step further, after the last round of security vulnerabilities
in flash about a month ago, and just removed it. (When flash is
disabled, Firefox makes it abundantly clear how many sites are still
using this, for exceptionally annoying ads.)

I have to say, I don't miss it. Yes, there have been a few sites where
content didn't play, but nothing I *needed*. With iOS devices having
never supported flash, and Android devices joining that group years
ago, the *need* for flash has dwindled, and only us desktop users must
suffer it.

If I did hit something I needed, well, there's always Chrome. ;-)
