What sites were you going to that said those messages? IE8 is working great for me and haven't run into compatibility problems yet (although some websites render incorrectly)

Anyways I'm just testing it and it seems really stable now, which wasn't the case when Beta 2 and RC1 came out.

You can uninstall IE8 via Control Panel--> Programs and Features--> Installed Updates.

By "foxfire", I assume you mean Firefox? You can download the Flash Player plugin for Firefox from Adobe here...

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Download the *.exe, close Firefox, then run the executable.
