I always run the linux emulated firefox:
Here is my setup:
tonyex@nada #>pkg_info | grep firefox
firefox-bin-1.0.4 Lightweight gecko-based web
browser (binary package)
firefox-bin-flash-7.0.25 Flash Player plugin for
firefox-bin-acroread5-1.0 Acrobat Reader 5 plugin for
Java plugin works as well, but I installed it
manually, so it is not listed.
So my firefox plays flash movies.
