Then LEAVE Adobe software, and use alternatives. Complaining about the current situation will not sway Adobe management team - the decision was made to stop Fireworks development. Fact of life, unfortunately.
Change is always hard; look for alternatives, and vote with your wallet.
Btw, as far as I recall, Macromedia itself was considering to discontinue Fireworks right before it was bought out by Adobe.

There is NO alternative to Fireworks.
You are correct: there is nothing out there that completely mimics Fireworks. Do realize that the slicing paradigm in Fireworks is somewhat outdated, though, and web workflows have evolved. FW never really kept up with those since Adobe took over development.
Xara Webdesigner or Designer Pro (which includes all of WebDesigner's features): http://www.xara.com/us/products/webdesigner/
Macaw will be out soon. Looks very interesting: http://macaw.co/
Antetype is also good, though more of an extra tool: http://www.antetype.com/
Myself, I replaced Fireworks with a combination of Photoline, Xara, and Color Quantizer. And the Foundation framework: http://foundation.zurb.com/
