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.
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
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.
