Flashblock is an extension for the Mozilla, Firefox, and Netscape browsers that takes a pessimistic approach to dealing with Macromedia Flash content on a webpage and blocks ALL Flash content from loading. It then leaves placeholders on the webpage that allow you to click to download and then view the Flash content.
Flashblock currently blocks the following content types:
* Macromedia Flash
* Macromedia Shockwave
* Macromedia Authorware

Whitelists: Make sure that you leave out the protocol prefix e.g. "https://" so to whitelist youtube, you should just use "youtube.com".
A User mentioned that whitelisting youtube videos embedded on other sites stopped working because the URL has changed, You should now whitelist "s.ytimg.com/yt" instead.
FoxTab: To allow FoxTab to work without interruption please add "chrome" to the Flashblock whitelist (without the '" quotes).
Google Street View: Flashblock is reported to prevent Google Street View from running when trying to start it from Google Maps. Please add maps.google.com to the Flashblock whitelist (For regional versions of Google such as maps.google.ch, maps.google.fr, and maps.google.de use "maps.google" as the whitelist string). The easiest way to do this is to put the Flashblock toolbar button on a toolbar and then clicking on the drop marker on the right edge of the button. Choose "Allow Flash from this site" while maps.google.com is in your tab/window.
