Been where you are, done all that.

First, deinstall from ports emulators/linux_base-fc4 and make install
linux_base-f8. Then make install from ports www/linux-firefox,
www/nspluginwrapper and www/linux-flashplugin9. kldload linux, and mount
-t linprocfs linproc /compat/linux/proc.

Run nspluginwrapper and then run linux-firefox. Tada! All should work
now, but it can be a little unstable.

HTH.
