Firefox-flash


Hi All,

I'm sure this has been covered before but I haven't found anything. What is the time-tested method of installing flash for firefox on freebsd?

Many Thanks,

lb

I do the following
Code:
#cd /usr/ports/www/linux-firefox && make install clean
#cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make install clean
Flash plugin 9 will work, but it crashes a lot so I opt for flash plugin 7. In case the symlinks are not automatically created for you, all you need to do is
Code:
ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/* /usr/local/lib/linux-firefox/plugins/.
