First of all I suggest you using the flash plugin 7. The flash player 9 is totally unusable on native firefox...

Install the below ports:
/usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7
/usr/ports/www/nspluginwrapper

Then enter the below command to install the plugin to the correct place:
nspluginwrapper -a -v -i

Then restart your firefox and you are ready.

The best thing to do for Flash 9 is use Wine with the Windows version of Firefox. Firefox 2.x works nicely in Wine. I just tried Firefox 3.x last night and had several issues with it. I need to update Wine, though.

I have a Gnash installed and for me works okay (IMO it is better than flushplugin 7).

I've installed:

www/seamonkey
www/flashplugin-mozilla
www/nspluginwrapper

Code:
# nspluginwrapper -a -v -i
and now the flash player works in seamonkey.

=> linux-flashplugin -- unspecified remote code execution vulnerability.
   Reference: <http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/portaudit/04c6187d-2d8f-11dd-98c9-00163e000016.html>
=> Please update your ports tree and try again.

There are known vulnerabilities in www/linux-flashplugin7, there is no fix from Adobe since flash player 7 is deprecated.

If you're aware of these issues, but want to install this port anyway, then specify DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES, i.e.:
# cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make install clean -DDISABLE_VULNERABILITIES

Will the news of the new Linux release have any bearing for BSDers?

If you're using FreeBSD 7 stable (recent build) than you can use Adobe Flash 9 too with Linuxulator. Just install nspluginwrapper, Linux base f8 (it's essential to mount linprocfs), set compat.linux.osrelease to 2.6.16 and of course Adobe Flash 9. You will get sound etc. pp. Sometimes you have to killall npviewer.bin but that's a minor annoyance. Otherwise it works like a charm.

It's already fixed and MFCed. PCBSD 7 just got an update to 7.0.1 (Flash 9 support)

I wrote some howto for German users: https://www.bsdwiki.de/Adobe_Flash_9_in_Firefox
