Default x-shockwave-flash not installing

Im on DesktopBSD as most of you may now already. im on 3.5.8. I installed linux-flashplugin9. it didn't work with my GUI package manager. so i did it with ports and it did work as far as i know. it said the installation was finished and it showed me in terminal the ToS and the license for it and what not. I still cant watch youtube videos, listen to music on myspace... even look at flash ads. anyone know a solution or the problem. any help would be great.

thank you

Flash9 does not work on FreeBSD and it never has. If you want it, run Windows Firefox under Wine and use the Windows Flash9 version. Or use Windows in a virtual machine.

This may change as the linuxator and associated support improves.

I should mention that Flash7 works fine with nspluginwrapper, but there are many flash animations that require a more recent Flash version.
