There was a lively discussion on Debian that illustrates some of
the difficulties. There are two Flash formats; the earlier is handled
with gnash and the later with lightspark. Unfortunately lightspark is
not as good as HTML5, but HTML5 is not offered by most sites if a Flash
player is available. With Flash in decline and HTML5 rising, a good case
can be made to leave both gnash and lightspark disabled if possible.
HTML5 support in Firefox (AKA Iceweasel) is uncertain. --Don
