What is this storage.swf hosted on Amazon Cloudfront that I find on so many websites including bitcointalk.org? Do I need to load this flash thingy or is it just Amazon spying on us?

Bitcointalk doesn't load any file with that filename. Actually... it loads no flash objects.
So it's more than likely you either have a virus, or you are connecting through a proxy which is injecting this object into the page, OR... one of your browser add-ons / extensions is doing so.

I went to look at the page source and got a little worried when I saw storage.swf in the <head>. But then I realized it was just there because of the topic title...

Try comparing your version of the source to unmodified source (gotten through a proxy) to see what else has changed. Extra info from that might help you find the problem.

The same exact thing happened to me when I was checking what the OP posted. Then I noticed where it was...

Oh, and flash cookies are nasty as most people don't even know they exist, thus don't clean them, and get tracked without even knowing.

I found it. The "storage.swf" was injected by the Firefox extension "pdfforge toolbar 5.0", installed by the open source "PDFCreator" from http://www.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator/ - it also did install the Firefox extension "Widgi Toolbar Platform 5.0" which seems to be used to implement toolbars like the "pdfforge toolbar". If I wasn't using "FlashBock" Firefox extension, I probably would never have discovered this strange "storage.swf".
Thank you & have a good night.
