 firefox crashes on any site with flash

 I am the one that submitted this, I am wanting to let everyone know that 
 there is already a fix for this, I didn't think it would work until I 
 tried it.  The reason I didn't think it would work was because it 
 appeared to be an old fix.  This is listed under the pkg-message within 
 the port linuxpluginwrapper
 
 Please get and apply a dlsym(3) hook patch.
         http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
 This provides _dlsym(3) function to fix dynamic-link
 error "can't find gtk_major_version" ad-hoc-ly.
 
 I don't set default to use flash7.  Please set-up your
 enviroment(ln -s, apply patch to rtld,...).
 
 What someone obviously has to do is get the source for rtld-elf and then 
 cd to it
 cd /usr/src/libexec/rtld-elf
 
 wget http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
 or
 fetch http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
 and then type patch < rtld_dlsym_hack.diff ; make clean install
 
 I did this and I also reinstalled linux-flashplugin7, I don't think that 
 part matters as much.   Either way this patch fixes the problem.  I just 
 want to let everyone know.  Thanks.
