I'd like to chime in here and say there is nothing special to get this 
configuration to work.  Download the Windows version of Firefox and install it 
via Wine, then download the Windows version of Flash for Firefox and install 
that with Wine.  Once you do that, you have Flash in Firefox using Wine.  Like 
has been said, Wine is far from perfect, but this works great until a native 
Flash can be made for FreeBSD.
