Yes, install Firefox and linuxpluginwrapper.  The latter depends on Flash7.

Because Firefox normally crashes with Flash7 due to an undefined
symbol, you'll have to patch your userland as described by
linuxpluginwrapper (can this be commited to current?, it runs fine on
Next you'll have to edit /etc/libmap.conf, for FreeBSD 6.x the
following suffices:                  pluginwrapper/                                     pluginwrapper/

Now Flash7 should be up and running (see the about:plugins page in Firefox)
