Jumping in late here.  I have Flash 7 working with Firefox on 6.1-RC.  Here's 
everything I remember doing:

1) I apply the rtld_dlsym_hack.diff patch after every time I update my sources 
and before I build / install world.  I don't remember where I got it but it 
should be in the mailing list archives.  It should be sufficient to rebuild 
and reinstall just rtld.

2) I have these packages installed:

3) I have this in /etc/libmap.conf
# [ALPHA SUPPORT] Flash7 with Mozilla
libpthread.so.0                 libpthread.so.2
libdl.so.2                      pluginwrapper/flash7.so
libz.so.1                       libz.so.3
libm.so.6                       libm.so.4
libc.so.6                       pluginwrapper/flash7.so

I also have all of the Flash6 lines commented out.  I don't know if that's 
necessary or not.

4) flashplayer.xpt and libflashplayer.so in /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/ 
are symlinks to the real files in /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin7/.
