Installing Flash CS5 will break your Flash debugging in FireFox and Flash/Flex Builder

Sometimes I am amazed that two parts of a single company can't work together.

Today was a classic example - I needed to install Adobe's Flash CS5 authoring tool, and already had a debug Flash player installed in FireFox. I also use Flash Builder for debugging Flex in the standalone player.

Installing CS5 broke both these things ! Why CS5 felt the need to mess, without asking or apparently thinking, I have no idea.

The fixes were fairly easy, but shouldn't have been needed.
