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

comment Which version of Adobe Flash is the stablest?
@Dani Personally I also think Macromedia Flash 8 as a tool was very stable and pretty fast. With newer version I also recommend keeping a clean .fla file in general. Regarding cleaning the library, the easiest option is to use the Select Unused Items option from the Library panel's context menu.

comment Illustrator - Radial gradient on multiple shapes
You could do this multiple ways. If you want to keep one shape, this should be possible with the gradient mesh tool. You can also use multiple shapes (e.g. one for the background and several overlaid for highlights/shadows with basic radial gradients)

comment How to: paper design to photoshop
As @DA01 points out - scan your drawing. If it takes several scans you can bring the images together in photoshop and use the difference blend mode to match them up, do any other curves/contrast adjustments you need to make it easy to tracer over than bring the file into Illustrator to vectorize over

comment Illustrator: Type in circular vector & background colour disappearing
If you press and hold the mouse on the Text tool it will reveal a Type on a Path tool. As @iuliux mentioned, odds are you'll get a detailed proper answer on GD as your question is related to design tools not programming

comment Perspective/non-linear blends with a common centre
Glad it helps ! I know, some shortcuts are quite obscure. Regarding sensitive controls, another option is to double click the polar grid icon in the Tools palette and try to play with the options there, although you loose the immediate feedback :(
