Why Linux Firefox doesn't play flash movies?

In order to enable Flash I installed linux-firefox-devel-3.5.7 and 
They together pulled whole lot of other ports, see list below.

But flash still doesn't work: youtube.com shows black windows instead.
I tried windows firefox under wine, but it has a lot of side-effects, 
since wine is perpetually buggy.

Anybody is able to play flash movies?
