It doesn't work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I don't know if Yahoo does something different or not, but the add on does nothing to stop their auto-playing videos. check https://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/carolina-panthers-jacksonville-jaguars-20170824030/ or https://www.yahoo.com/gma/know-hurricane-harvey-nears-landfall-111123905--abc-news-topstories.html
The prupose of this add-on is to disable flash, not block any videos.
The videos on the site you liked aren't even flash videos, but normal html5 videos.
Till Flash death do us part Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've read something like from Firefox 55 on, Flash is disabled by default anyway for any website and if possible, HTML5 is used for videos. Is this add-on obsolete now? It was really helpful until now, but I'd be happy too if I can spare an add-on.
Flash will always be in "Ask to activate" mode soon, while you will be able to enable flash permanently for a specific site until the end of 2018.
If this is enough for you, then you don't need this addon. The main purpose of this addon is to hide the fact that you have flash installed from websites, which is not the case with "Ask to activate".
See https://github.com/klemens/ff-flashdisable/issues/12 for a discussion about the future of this addon regarding the move to WebExtensions.
Very helpful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Since Flash is still around and not easy to completely get rid of, this extension is very well though-out and quick to use. Now compatible with Pale Moon, it's an easy 5-star.
Отличный плагин! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Просьба разработчику, было бы хорошо, если бы в плагин можно было бы вносить адреса сайтов, на которых бы Flash автоматически отключался, для анонимности серфинга.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0).
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately I don't speak Russian and the result of a automatic translation wasn't very helpful.
Could you try to translate your suggestion into English, German or Spanish or provide more details, so that the automatic translation becomes clearer?

Then this project and others like it could continue being developed!
Perfect solution to my need to be able to turn Flash on and off.
Thank you very much!

feature req Rated 4 out of 5 stars
add rule persite ( auto disable flash when i visit certain website , auto enable flash again if i visit another website)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed.1-signed).
You can disable flash for certain websites while keeping it enabled for all others by disabling flash explicitly in the permission settings of this site: Right click the website -> "View Page Info" -> tab "Permissions" under "Activate Plugins".
The other way round is unfortunately not possible. A similar setting that might get close to what you want is to set flash into the "Always ask" mode in about:addons -> "Plugins" and then permanently allow (or disallow) flash for certain websites like described above.

Disabled flash, then deleted the add-on. Flash was still disabled. This one seems to leave a permanent trace on the browser settings even if you delete it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed.1-signed).
You are right, the addon does not remember the state of flash when it was installed.
However, the only thing the addon does is use the functions build into firefox to enable and disable plugins. Therefore you can simply reenable flash in the Add-ons-Manager (about:addons) in the Plugins tab.
Good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It's fine.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed.1-signed).
Fantastic, Simple, Effective. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Despite html5 being the default, when websites embed many common flash players they will load flash by default. When flash is disabled, they do html5 (and consume *significantly* fewer resources).
Exactly what I needed and functions perfectly.
FEATURE REQUEST - A way to allow flash on a list of websites, even when the "flash disable" button is enabled. Naturally, I keep flash disabled by default. But a handful of websites (e.g. Hulu) require flash and I would always want it enabled.
That said, I could see this "white-list" undermining the add-ons simplicity.
Thanks for your review!
Unfortunately there is no simple way to implement a globally disabled flash with exceptions for a few websites. (The other way would work, but is of course not very useful)
But you can disable flash right away when the page with the flash content has loaded (and maybe use the option of the add-on to reload the current page when enabling flash). This does not kill the already loaded flash content.
a godsend Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As someone who hates flash, but has to use it occasion, THANKS. this works 100% as expected, and makes it a snap to turn flash on and off at will. I'd give you 6 stars if I could.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed.1-signed).
Супер! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Это самое лучшее дополнение по блокировке флеша. Дело в том, что есть сайты, на которых включает HTML5 плеер, только при откллюченном плагине флеша, а вручную неудобно через настройки вкл\откл. Спасибо. Было бы неплохо, если бы сделали возможность создавать список сайтов, где включать флеш или где отключать. Дополнение Flashblock не предлагать, оно не работает там, где мне надо.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed.1-signed).

Useful also for html5 video sites which wrong detect Flash Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I use it for html5 video sites which wrong detect Flash. Just disable Flash with the button then site uses html5 video without a problem. It automatically reloads page on button click for "enable" flash, when configured in addon settings. Just one wish: Also reload page on button click for "disable" flash.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed.1-signed).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very well done, flash will slowly fade away no doubt about that, but until then addons like these are a Godsend. As HTML 5 gets more and more popular, I'm sure that we will see similar problems.
It would be nice if you could create an addon which disables the autoplay crap in HTML 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Is excelent the unique thing i felt need this FlashDisable , is disable flash per sites
like in Dailymotion when you have HTML5 Player , and if you have FlashPlayer installed , the site try to load the Flash Player version and not the HTML5 Player version ( GNU/Linux )
The rest is excelent and simple .
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just to note all. If you're experiencing any errors or unable to install or update Flash in Firefox, ensure that the FlashDisable is set to the "off" position before attempting to install/update Flash. Or the installer/updater will not install the needed plug in. At least on my setup. This add on has worked very well on my Firefox 39.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed.1-signed).
Alternative icon? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great addon, but could you add an alternative icon? I'm colour blind and it's hard to tell if the icon is activated or not.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed.1-signed).
Sure, that should be no problem. Do you have any suggestions for alternative icons? Should I use different colors or totally different symbols?
