Hi Luis, 

no luck on my side.  I tried this before the same way as you describe,
just w/o the rtld patch.  It used to "work" so much that I did see the
plugin registered in the about:plugins page.  But it hung whenever I was
accessing some flash-enabled page.

Same today after including your rtld patch (what does it do, by the
way?).  Either flash6 or flash7 (whichever I symlink into
browser_plugins) registers into the about page, but whenever I call a
flash-enabled page the browser hangs complete, does not even redraw the
screen when I uncover the window.  The browser has to be killed.

FreeBSD6-stable suped about a week or two ago, Firefox 1.5.
