Read the fine installation notes, which should have been printed after you
emerged it:

Adobe has released 10.1 in only a 32-bit version and upgrading
is required to close a major security vulnerability:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/322855

Furthermore, there are stability problems when running 10.1 in a
64-bit browser with nspluginwrapper. The current recommended
configuration is to use a 32-bit browser such as
www-client/firefox-bin:

Or just reinstall nsplugginwrapper and restart your FF. That's what I did
(search this list for thread titled: www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.1.53.64 won't
play in FF & Konqueror).

HTH.
