    Default Looking for a Firefox Extension

    I am trying to look for a Firefox Extension that blocks flash content e.g.: ads etc...?

    Does any one know where I can find it?

    Thanks

    PS: I am using Firefox 1.0.7

    Flashblock: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/433/

    Can Adblock/Adblock Plus can do it as well? No idea

    Flashblock and adblock. They're good enough.

    Looks like Flashblock works with 1.05+

    And adblock works with 1.07.

    You know, there is this fascinating thing called a search engine, where through the convergence of mystical forces, I came across this page:

    I use No-Script. Most Flash is initiated from a JavaScript and this works very well in blocking most unnecessary content

    Be careful and vigilant. The internet should be considered like roads, avoiding an incident is better than trying to survive one.

    Why not upgrade your version of Firefox so that you can use some of the extensions which have been suggested?
