I installed firefox3 and removed firefox (currentish i386). First, thanks to everyone who worked on this - it just worked, with no grief, far better than I had hoped. Flash stopped working, which is a mixed blessing, but I had wanted the plugin. On investigating, I saw that there was a plugin in /usr/pkg/lib/firefox/plugins but not in /usr/pkg/lib/firefox3/plugins. I did make replace on multimedia/ns-flash and now it's in the right place. I see that ns-flash calls nspluginwrapper at install time, and presumably that searches for appropriate places. But this sort of means that ns-flash depends on the various installed browsers. I suspect the right fix is to have ns-flash put the plugin in lib/netscape/plugins only and to have ns-flash-firefox and ns-flash-firefox3 that depend on a particular browser and install for that. That's harder, and perhaps not worth it - having to rebuild/reinstall ns-flash when adding a new browser isn't that hard.
