Yes, but something about the flashplugin was odd. I rebuilt it but due 
to a static - not version dependend - release repository at Adobe, I 
wasn't able to build a version that works with non-gtk ie. non-gecko 
browsers. So, I would say for as long as flashplugin cannot be moved 
down to extra, all geckos must stay in testing. Then again, I don't know 
if its maintainer was able to roll it back...

Thunderbird has already been moved to /usr in extra as there are no 
binary plugins in our repos as far as I know.

I'll push them as soon as I get a sign-off for all the xulrunner packages.
