I installed www/firefox-gtk2-bin sucessfully. Trying to view any flash file gives me a blank. Sometimes I get the distinct finger pointer that flash generates. I repeatedly removed $HOME/.mozilla/firefox to no effect.
Install www/firefox-gtk2-bin, then go to http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/. If flash is installed correctly, then you will see an animation.
It seems that part of the problem is in www/firefox-gtk2-bin-flash. When doing "make install" here, firefox ought to be installed, but it isn't. Manually installing www/firefox-gtk2-bin, then installing www/firefox-gtk2-bin-flash doesn't help either.
