That's no problem. However this mailing list is for laptop
related topics. You should have used the debian-user
mailing list.

You should always use a package when it exists(1) unless you have a very
very specific reason not to do it (I can't find any ;)

Firefox is shipped in Debian, but the package name is iceweasel (see
http://wiki.debian.org/Iceweasel )

Similarly, you should install Flash player using a pacakge, see:

(1) The whole point of using package is precisely that the package makes
it easier to "integrate" the applications togegher. Also, security updates
are automatically installed by the package manager.
