Sorry folks..

 I figured it out.  I believe for Flash in Firefox for PC-BSD, you need 3

   1. www/linux-f10-flashplugin10
   2. www/nspluginwrapper
   3. from a shell prompt as the user needing flash, issue: flashpluginctl

After reinstalling the first two via ports, I remembered #3.  My main
mistake was to assume that flash was automatically available (and turned
'on') in Firefox after adding the pbi.  Perhaps this should be more
automated or more obvious for the average user?
