I would suggest linux_base-f8-8_11, the in /etc/sysctl.conf put:  
compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16, for firefox use the latest firefox3  
port (firefox-3.0.5_1,1) NOT firefox-devel, all the plugins that you  
want such as linux-flashplugin-9.0r152 and any others then  
nspluginwrapper-1.2.2_2 and run the script and start firefox3 and all  
should be well if I haven't forgotten something.

I would guess that the principal problem is the firefox-devel port  
rather than firefox3.  IIRC, it is pre-firefox3.
