I hope not because I'm using it right now with a site that requires  
flash 9.  IMO, it works much better than windows firefox with wine  
emulation plus the linux firefox-devel has a security issue, I believe.

The only issue is with a few extra processes for flash on ocassion,  
but I'm not complaining.  The version of FBSD firefox from ports  
firefox3 I'm using is 3.0.5.
