Gee, I had the opposite problem. With the fedora flash plugins installed
firefox forced one of the flash mime types to use a plugin. You couldn't
changed it to save in preferences. (This was about a week ago, but has been
partly fixed since.)

Whether flash is important or is a scourge is dependent on the viewer.
Personally I have no need to see any flash, and I really don't like web pages
that have motion. And plugins are an additional security risk on top of what
you normally have using firefox.

I would rather see firefox make it easy to make save the default for all
mime types and allow you to pick which few you want rendered by default.
