#6979: Flash Player 10 breaks the media uploader

Comment (by Kelson):

 In the event that Gears does replace Flash as the primary method in the
 future, Flash should still be included as an intermediate fallback.  Flash
 runs on a number of platform/browser combinations where Gears doesn't, at
 least not yet: Opera, for instance, or Safari on Windows, or anything on
 64-bit Linux (Flash runs on 64bit Linux relatively easily through
 nspluginwrapper, but while I'm told you can run gears through it, I
 haven't been able to get it to work), and while it'll run on other Gecko
 browsers than Firefox, you have to jump through hoops to do it.
