Flash Plugin not working

I am running FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE on i386 hardware. I have installed
linux-firefox and linux-flashplugin from the ports collection. The
same is iterated by pkg_info.

[bsdboy at phoenix ~]$ pkg_info | grep flash
linux-flashplugin-7.0r68 Adobe Flash Player NPAPI Plugin
[bsdboy at phoenix ~]$ linux-firefox
[bsdboy at phoenix ~]$ pkg_info | grep firefox
firefox-,1   Web browser based on the browser portion of Mozilla
linux-firefox- Web browser based on the browser portion of Mozilla

However when I am trying to open any sites from linux-firefox, the
embedded flash applications are not displayed. Also the browser
complains about missing plugin.

I have checked the installed plugins by typing about:plugins. But
there is no flash plugin displayed there either.

Where am I going wrong?

Thanks and Best Regards
