Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was having a problem with an invisible block covering the player. It was traced to FlashBlock. I contacted the support site, and was given a fix. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1054859

Works Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Says it doesn't work with NoScript extension but I'm using both and they work just fine.

Wish people read first. So, read this first before posting. Fix exists already. Works fine for me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If it was not for people who did not read before posting, then the solutions and information posted a long time ago would not have gotten buried, and far less complaints would have existed here.

All you got to do is search Google for "Fix For Firefox Flashblock And Youtube Click Problem". Include the Quotation Marks. Do that and you got your fix and another too. A sort of visual How-to guide. I initially did the 1st past fix, and then did the better (latest) fix and uninstalled the unneeded Adblock and just kept Flashblock. I think solutions there (meaning Tech Notes) for Firefox, Palemoon, Torch, Windows, Linux, etc.

I also do not have a problem with Netflix when using Flashblock, but I do have Netflix on Flashblock whitelist of options. Maybe because I am not using the latest version of Firefox.

If you read the comments at the Tech Notes site, you will also catch fixes for other sites too for when using Flashblock.

Still Works, YouTube Just Put An Annoying Frame Over It Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Flashblock does actually still work as intended, unfortunately YouTube now has an invisible frame over the video area that prevents the clicks to activate/deactivate it.

I got rid of it by using an addon that removes elements from pages. It was a bit fiddly, but eventually I clicked on the right element and temporarily removed it. Refreshed then did a permanent remove.

Not sure how anyone else is getting round it.

Youtube click problem. Can't start youtube videos by clicking on them. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1: Go to the Firefox profiles folder. "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles" in windows 7.
2: Open the Firefox profile you want fix Flashblock on. Most likely you have only a default profile and some combination of numbers and letters exist on a folder name that ends in .default. Such as 30o7cbgj.default in this example.
3: Go to Chrome folder. If not there, then create this folder.
4: Create a text file in the chrome folder and name it "userContent.css" and open/edit it with Notepad or Wordpad or any other simple text editor that does not add invisible formatting characters.
5: Type or copy and paste "#theater-background {display:none}" into the file.
6: Save the File and close file.
7: Restart Firefox by Exiting and Opening it again. Done.

Flashblock is really a flash element blocker. It does it job great, say our workers at Residential Banking & Compliance Law Center. It uses little ram, is probably extremely responsive once it is activates. Why we say probably? Well because at RBCLC the computers are different and every computer processes things differently...

An update to my previous post. After uninstalling all Adobe players, I installed Flash Player content debugger for Firefox - NPAPI v17.0.0.134 from http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/17/flashplayer_17_plugin_debug.exe and everything works now. Left UserContent.css intacted as in previous post

решение проблемы с youtube есть Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Да, код работает, спасибо. Но, надолго-ли это, никто не знает. На других флеш-плеерах не проверял пока. Flash stopper не устроил, остальные вообще не смотрел.

Flashblock не умер есть решение проблемы с youtube! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Проблема с отображением роликов на YouTube связано с тем, что на видео накладывается прозрачный слой, который перекрывает своими размерами объект Flashblockа. Что бы Flashblock вновь начал исправно функционировать, необходимо убрать накладываемый прозрачный слой.

Первый способ будет выполнен вместе с расширением Adblock Plus, если данное расширение установлено в вашем браузере, этот способ для вас.

Открываем раздел с установленными в браузере дополнениями: «Инструменты» -- «Дополнения»
Далее «Расширения» и нажимаем на кнопку «Настройки» для расширения Adblock Plus.
Нажимаем «Настройки фильтров»
В открывшемся окне переходим во вкладку «Собственные фильтры», в строке «Исключения» нажимаем на кнопку «Действия» и в выпадающем меню выбираем «Спрятать/показать фильтры».
Откроется вкладка с вашими фильтрами исключений. Эта вкладка может быть пустой, а может быть заполнена личными фильтрами как у меня. Нажимаете на кнопку «Добавить фильтр».
В предложенное поле необходимо ввести такой фильтр: youtube.com##div#theater-background.player-height и нажать «Enter», фильтр будет добавлен к остальным.

Теперь можно заходить на YouTube и смотреть ролики.

Flashblock is dead. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Flashblock RIP - загнулся окончательно. FlashStopper - тоже не советую он работает только на нескольких самых популярных сайтах. Я перехожу на Flash Control, отлично работает на всех сайтах.

Дополнение перестало работать. Нашёл замену и вам советую: FlashStopper называется.

Flash still works fine, but appears that some HTML5 video still plays anyway (youtube) on FF36.

Pretty please fix?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars


"Our relationship" (fb and me / us) has been complicated lately ;)...

While this addon is not updated as youtube does...


Flash Control (Flash + html5). We can use it to pause youtube and play until you click it the video :).

Anyway, flashblock is still one of my favorites addons...I hope be fixed soon.

Not working.... update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why the hell isn't this updated for Firefox 35.0.1? Come to your senses and update all damn ready.

Не робит))) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Поставил данное дополнение месяца 3 назад, все работало "на ура", но после 2 месяцев использования, внезапно стало блокировать видео без запуска (кнопка не срабатывала на клики), а еще через месяц вообще перестало работать т.е. видео на ютюбе стало запускаться, но только звук, а вместо изображения - черный экран... Данное дополнение я стер и поставил вместо него другое Flash control, и оно работает отлично...

Problem with BT Sport online player Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've just got BT Sport online and found that Flashblock 1.5.18 is blocking it, I get a black player screen, no symbols, signs or warnings. Details are:

Disabling flashblock FROM WITHIN THE ADDON (ie green spot/red cross on the button) doesn't make a difference.

Disabling flashbock FROM THE FIREFOX ADDON PAGE will allow the video to play - very inconvenient requiring a restart, which if I'm already logged in to BT logs me out.

"Allow flash from this site" ticked or unticked doesn't make a difference.

"Also block HTML5 and Silverlight" ticked or unticked doesn't make a difference.

(BT Sport uses Silverlight - i have the latest plugin 5.1.30514.0 installed and always activated.)

Whitelisting sport.bt.com and enabling the 'check whitelist' checkbox doesn't make a difference.

Enabling/disabling adblock 2.6.7 doesn't make a difference (I have the youtube fix working).

Please note before asking that the above description is accurate - there IS a difference between disabling flaskblock from the Firefox addon page and from with the addon.

BT Sport also works fine in IE.

I'm stuck - has anyone got a fix for this?
