Ditto.  And no java plugins either.  I've make deinstalled/installed so 
many times my head is spinning.

I installed mplayer and viola!!!  the plugins were "registered" with 
firefox.  Why can't java and flash do that?

And yes, I've read the man pages, goggled, searched the fbsd lists, tried 
the millions of different "solutions" that "worked" for various people. 
Everything else on FreeBSD "just works".  Why can't the damn browser
