Actually, you can run the linux flash plugin with the native mozilla.
You need to be running a version of the OS with libmap support --
either 5.x, or recent 4.9-STABLE, or there are some patches against
4.9-RELEASE available, which might apply to earlier versions of the
system.  Just try installing the www/linuxpluginwrapper port -- it
will tell you if your version of the OS is unsupported or not. Be sure
to follow the instructions about setting up /etc/libmap.conf
carefully.  This lets you install both linux-flashplugin and acroread
as browser plugins.  Works nicely.
