You should check out the freebsd-ports mailing list archives. This has
been discussed maybe a week ago.

Basically, it works with linux-firefox and you can get sound if you
follow the intructions at

http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flash_Player:Additional_Interface_Support_for_Linux

You need to compile a file on a linux box and install the resulting
libflashsupport.so in /compat/linux/usr/lib

Flash9 is very unstable though, so you'll probably want to stay with
flash7 for now.
