Sorry not a response to the OP but hopefully useful correction:
%pkg_info -Ix firefox
firefox-22.214.171.124_1,1 Web browser based on the browser portion of Mozilla
%pkg_info -Ix plugin
linux-flashplugin-9.0r115 Adobe Flash Player NPAPI Plugin
nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.5 A compatibility plugin for Netscape 4 (NPAPI)
I don't actually see a lot of flash as I have flashblock installed but I
can't recall having probs when I have chosen to view it, except it still
doesn't work with youtube. I've just installed wine and win32
firefox+flashplugin for youtube and bbc iplayer and that works fine.
