I have been looking for a way to stop HTML5 video content from both auto-playing and auto-buffering (some about:config settings that used to work now seem not to), and it seems that I have found an extension that seems to work beyond the usual YouTube. Flashblock used to work, but that seems broken for now, so it forced me to look elsewhere.

Well, so far, so good, Flash Control does seem to work nicely in stopping both auto-buffering and auto-playing HTML5 video, as well as give control to Flash content.

Many thanks to the author for this timely extension. Much appreciated.

works nicely in some quick tests Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Control of html5 seems to work for me in a couple quick tests. Great workaround until https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=659285 is addressed.

Testing for flash control failed on http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/. It prevented the playback (good), but when I click on the little script f in the red circle to play the flash, it yielded just a black box. Hmmm... hold on. That seemed to happen because of a javascript blockage due to NoScript. Allowing adobe.com to use javascript cleared it up.
Sorry - false alarm, but worth noting that other users should be aware of other interactions beyond flash control.

Sometimes there's couple second delay before it stops a playback on a newly loaded page. I imagine it's hard to interpose flash control earlier to reduce that delay.

The webm audio playback test here - http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test/ - shows the 'V' icon (not sure why the 'A' icon doesn't happen). And clicking on the 'V' icon doesn't get the audio playing (not counting the couple second delay before Flash Control kicks in). I had to disable Flash Control to get it playing. That web page seems a pretty good stress test for Flash Control actually. Might be worth using it to polish Flash Control.

[Using Aurora / Firefox 37.0a2]

p.s. @blueskyy - Yes reviews like the Feb 2 one from neuw are pathetic. You don't need to respond to such trolls. Reasonable people can ignore them.

[20150209 update] Here's some web pages where the initial blocking delay is evident:

http://www.itma.vt.edu/tech/shockwave.htm
http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Depending on system load, that delay varies, but it can be a couple seconds on a loaded slower computer.

Tested with a separate profile and only extension loaded was 'flash control'.
Yes, using latest (1.2.7 at the time of this writing - not sure why the line at the bottom says the review was for 1.2.5 - unless firefox updated it automatically in the last week).

[20150209 update 2] For the report I made regarding the 'V' tag for webm audio, I had to use noscript to block javascript. So I had the flash control & noscript extensions, new profile. Then load the page and hit the 'click to try it' button for webm. This brings up a new page and starts playing the audio for a couple seconds (another example of the blocking delay). Then flash control kicks in and a 'V' tag shows up. Clicking on the 'V' tag gets the audio playback going again. So the reproduction is a little more involved, but that's how I originally noticed it (because I have noscript on by default).

Re: Issues with Flash Control

Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce any of the problems on my end. Here's one of my tests (I've tested on Firefox 35.0.1 and the latest Nightly):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hnCvKyE6N8

I've used a separate profile for my tests, with no other extensions installed. I'll test with Aurora this weekend.

Anyway, are you using the latest version of Flash Control? Theoretically, the "delays" shouldn't be more than 1 second (actually, that has been the case in all my prior tests as well). If it plays for more than a second before it blocks, there's a high change Firefox has changed its internal coding, or there's a bug with Flash Control. That issue should have been resolved in version 1.2.3.

-----------------------------------------

[2015.02.08] Update: After install Aurora, I'm still unable to reproduce the problems.

As flashblock no longer works on Firefox 35 it is a relief to find this add-on that actually works.

Flashblock replacement that works Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

So glad to have found this. Flashblock's click icon to play died a while ago for me. This works just great.

Thank you for this functional add-on.

Whitelist Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Hi blueskyy. I'm unable to find any contact info, hence I'm posting here...
In your "what's next" section, you posted "Probably a GUI for management the whitelist.". Is there any way to control it now? Even if it's just a text file or something, I'd love to have a whitelist functionlity.

Re: Whitelist

The UI for the whitelist was already implemented since v1.0.9, as outlined in the description. That was some time ago (for the exact date, refer to the changelog).

The "what's next" section was outdated, it's updated now. Thanks.

ps: You shouldn't be making multiple reviews of the same version. Anyone can report your "review" as spam.

Finally have flash control back Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It blocks youtube flash videos until I am ready to view them, since I often open multiple youtube tabs at a time. If it doesn't block stuff after you install it, close your browser and re open it.

Thank you for your excellent replacement for the venerable flashblock.

It would be awesome if 'flash control' also handled silverlight objects :)

Thanks again!

I concur with IcemanSR: a worthy successor of old flashblock. I dumped Adobe Flash on all my systems last year and Flash Control is exactly what I needed to handle HTML5.

It works A-OK in Cyberfox 64-bit Portable which is what I switched to when I got fed up with Palemoon.

•For those of us not Ajaxian, what is the purpose of "Override Ajax Anchor"? I've tried it on and off in youtube and what it does just doesn't seem readily apparent.

Thanks!

1.0.7 version of the addon works okay with Pale Moon 25.1.0. However, the lastest version (1.2.0) of the addon is not compatible with Pale Moon. Please make the addon available for the lastest version of Pale Moon. Thank you.

Blocks more than advertised! Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

This add-on provides no way to distinguish between HTML5 media and Flash content, instead blocking them both in spite of their having no relation to each other. There is also a poorly-documented white-list feature, not sure why this isn't just explained in the description.

I left a neutral review that explained these issues for others' benefit previously, but the developer apparently is reporting reviews they don't like and getting them deleted.

Re: Provides no way to distinguish betwwen HTML5 media and Flash content

It does distinguish between HTML5 media and Flash content. They're shown as different icons. Users can also choose between which contents to block through the UI.

What's with the random "A" button? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It works quite well so far, as in that it provides an additional stage of affirmation before certain flash animations or players are loaded (along with their content), like on YouTube so that pages load a tiny bit faster and the player is only loaded when I click the flash icon (in addition to YouTube Center which prevents it from actually playing the video).

There's one thing though, Flash Control seems to add a non-functional graphical "A" button to some pages, that does just nothing when I click it, particularly on Facebook where it mostly appears in the bottom left corner of the page. When clicked, the button just disappears Other than that, everything seems fine.

Re: "A" button does nothing

Each "A" button represents a HTML5 audio. It does nothing because Facebook hides the audio elements from the user.

ps: I could've have confirmed it for you, but you didn't leave me a direct link.

Causes severe jank (i.e. short browser hangs) on Amazon webpages. Please see the bug report here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1112081

Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (1.1.9). 

Re: Causes severe jank

I'm not sure if it's caused by Flash Control...

If the intermittent hangs happen during pageloads regardless of whether Flash Control is installed or not, BUT more noticeable when Flash Control is active, then there's is nothing more I can do about it if it isn't caused by a bug in the code. Because here's the rationale, Flash Control checks a page or partial page whenever it loads or if it's reloaded.

You could do a couple of things if it's too severe for you (I couldn't duplicate that in my tests):

1. Don't attempt to interact with multiple pages while they're all loading.
2. Add "www.amazon.co.uk" to the Flash Control's whitelist.
3. Uninstall Flash Control completely.

Awesome ! Works ! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
