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  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.
