Don't pkg_delete firefox2, just install www/firefox3 alongside it.
graphics/gnash-devel works mostly ok for youtube.
Just a quick note, firefox3 uses /usr/local/lib/firefox3/plugins as the
plugins directory, while firefox2 uses /usr/local/browser_plugins. You
will probably have to symlink files from this directory to the new one
for the plugins to work.
