Thanks for the speedy replies.

<at> Kris:

The architecture is amd64 and I was using Firefox 4.0 64 bit at the time.  I am now using Firefox 4.0.1 64 bit version at this time.

The following is the output from the nspluginwrapper command, which did not appear to make any difference.

That is really odd, since konq works but not FF. Can you send me this output?

As already mentioned the reason for this seems to be that Firefox has
deactivated the flash plugin (without asking the user and without giving
him an easy way to get it back online!).  I have the same behaviour on
my system.

Wonder why my plugin isn't getting disabled here? I'm running the latest 
FF 4.0.1 and flash it just humming along happily. Is that a setting 
somewhere?

All your packages are identical to what I've got here. Have you do any 
other customization on the system?

If you run the command "flashpluginctl off" and then "flashpluginctl on" 
does it still not let the plugin show up in mozillas about:plugins?

FWIW does chrome show the flash plugin and use it properly?

Kris Moore asked:

1.  All your packages are identical to what I've got here. Have you do any
other customization on the system?


2.  If you run the command "flashpluginctl off" and then "flashpluginctl on"
does it still not let the plugin show up in mozillas about:plugins?


3.  FWIW does chrome show the flash plugin and use it properly?


==================== R E P L Y ==============================================

1.  There is no other customization.  Very vanilla PCBSD install.

2.  Before-and-after comparison of plugins:

======== about:plugins output before executing commands ======================

Shockwave Flash

    File: npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    Version:
    Shockwave Flash 10.3 r181

MIME Type             Description         Suffixes
application/x-shockwave-flash     Shockwave Flash     swf
application/futuresplash     FutureSplash Player     spl


========= about:plugins output after executing "off" command =======================

[IR <at> rtbank] ~> flashpluginctl off

Flash Plugin for user 'IR' disabled


There are no entries for Shockwave Flash


========= about:plugins output after executing "on" command =======================

[IR <at> rtbank] ~> flashpluginctl on

Flash Plugin for user 'IR' enabled

[IR <at> rtbank] ~>

about:plugins report for Shockwave Flash is identical to the "before" section.


3.  I do not have chrome, but chrome users also make many reports of Flash crashing, or failing to play YouTube, or hanging.  See, for example, "Chrome 11 - Constant Flash Crashes" http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=13137185df92e1eb&hl=en
