comment How to calculate the best type colour for a random background colour?
Pretty simple and pretty effective. I've played with a few options and the brightness threshold works nicely as you can see in the updated sketch. Instructions are in the comments on the left. If I have time I might want try playing with different colour spaces (like convert to L*a*b* and play with the components), but for now this does the job nice and simple.

comment Adobe Flash CS6 won't Export Animated Gif - How do on the main timeline?
Use Export Movie not Export Image and choose the Animated GIF format from the list (which should include quicktime/swf/etc.), but you don't have much control over quality/dithering which is horrible. For bet quality results, John's advice is the best.

comment how to import vectors from fireworks to illustrator
@Scott almost. Flash and Fireworks have a long history together: you can import/paste from a Fireworks png and the vectors will be preserved

comment How can I export a flash file to a gif format without losing quality?
Flash doesn't export nice looking .gif files. You can try to export your animation as a PNG sequence then open that as a sequence in Fireworks(frames will be added automatically) and export an animated .gif from there. You'll have more control (over image(number of colours) and animation(repeats,timing)) for gif export. Another alternative that comes to mind is to use the AS3 GIF Encoder library to export a decent gif via code, but that's handy if you're comfortable programming in actionscript 3
