I'm running FreeBSD 9.0-BETA1 #22: Sun Aug 21 05:16:20 CDT 2011 with
512 Aug 18 07:39 amd64 and  /var/db/pkg/firefox-6.0,1 and this plays
perfectly.  Maybe the difference between 8.0 and 9.  So this probably
doesn't help much.   I've got a 7.4-STABLE i386 at the office that I
will install it on and test it tomorrow.  It is running 5 now.  I
would probably use csup and then portmaster to update my ports and
friends, just to try and keep these things in order.

sorry,
