The really easy way out is to install the linux-firefox port. If you
do this, flash
should "just work". There shouldn't be any noticeable performance difference
between the native FreeBSD Firefox browser and the emulated Linux one, either.

The flash plugin works great with linux-firefox; but how do you get the
java plugin to work with it?
