Although there are instructions for modifying the install.rdf and repackaging, it would be wonderful to have this fantastic addon updated on AMO.
This is a LIFE SAVER!!
Okay review goes as follows:
1) Download the version that is at the Authors homepage since amo's copy is out of date.
2) Using Official Mozilla Firefox 3.0.11 (32bit) on Macintosh, Windows and Linux 64bit distro:
a) Linux - Just had to change the repository to my local profile instead of the global.
b) Windows - Worked like a charm.
c) Macintosh - Worked... BUT Flash 10.0 r22 is weird... instead of creating the two files that your addon copies, Adobe creates a subdirectory/folder structure for it. Your addon is not currently capable of deleting the existing folders... SO after I "Saved" 10.0 r22 via your Save menu item, closed Firefox and went and deleted the folder manually... Then your addon works like a charm. :)
Thanks for a great addon and I hope that you resubmit to amo soon and perhaps a little bit of a guide on how to get it working with the Mac people. :)
P.S. For all the other reviewers... Install a version of Flash normally, then Save it via this addon to support newer Flash versions... quite elegant minus the curve ball Adobe threw in with 10.0 r22 on the Mac.
Feature requests tho:
- When window is opened and running have a checkbox to temporarily stop capturing.
- Separate Clear logs
- Deeper scope to include scripts that may be executed locally.
Excellent for identifying what a site uses.
Would like a request or few though:
- When the bubble appears allow a user to click the bubble to remove it before the timeout expires.
I'm reminded of the description of this addon which currently states:
...and blocks ALL Flash content from loading...
Flashblock currently blocks the following content types:
* Macromedia Flash
* Macromedia Shockwave
* Macromedia Authorware
This addon used to be a core addon that I installed on not just my own machines, but others... however... late last year I discovered that your above advertisement is false and have thus removed it from dozens of machines. It's taken me quite a bit of time to "recover" from this apparent oversight, calm down and spend a rather long period of contemplation writing this review.
Luckily NoScript addon properly blocks ALL flash objects with one change to "apply these restrictions to trusted sites".
Due to this lack of disclosure on AMO, I can't recommend this addon period due to security concerns.
This is a much need addon and it's concept seems very sound however the growing pains of it are a bit much.
1) Database appears to be a bit too biased and from what I've read on USO it was actually errored for a while. A lot of scripts still aren't showing up... perhaps in time this will iron itself out.
2) Greasefire should give an option to open the scripts web page in the main window instead of building a sub-browser window... which leads to the next point.
3) Browser subwindow in this add-on completely ignores browser security... e.g. cookies, images, scripting, etc. Could easily be remedied by giving the user an option described in point 2.
Because of points 2 and 3, I can not recommend this script to anyone... I'm still of the opinion that once a few security concerns are addressed and the database retrieval method is fixed (and updated without too much bias [I know spammers like to hit USO a lot])...
...this could easily get a FIVE STAR rating!
Non functional and also it calls a server side script which is considered a security risk.
Sorry... neat, fun idea though... try again?
Some sort of visual indicator would be helpful for testing. This is similar to NetCaptors cleaning methods, and I do like the silent approach for long term usage, but for testing... without examining your code in great detail, it would nice to have a visual progress indicator that could show me how many passes, what it's cleaning, etc.
Thanks for the work so far! :)
Very nice description on your extension... which I find a lot of others don't take the time to do that. Keep up the great work. :)
I will have to test this more in-depth, but seems to be solid... rating at an 8 for now.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
2) Preview image supplied here isn't exactly what I'm seeing under Linux.
Thank you. :)
2) Preview image supplied here, doesn't match what I'm seeing on Linux.

This add-on just barely works as of 0.7.20070607.0 which I'm grateful for, but way too many bugs. Perhaps 0.8.0 will be better.
As usual, great job... just make sure you are ready for FF3 when it's officially released... don't want a repeat of FF2 ;)
Thanks again for all the hard work! :)
Without this my mouse buttons would be completely worn out! ;) Thanks for this awesome extension!
Even with minor glitches here and there between versions, this extension has turned my extension experience with FF into a charming adventure.
Thanks for this awesome extension! :)
This extension, like others have commented, is almost transparent and is easy to forget that it's installed...
But on a RARE occasion, the default download manager occasionally rears it's head up, and then I go into shell shock that this extension isn't showing.
Keep up the great work! :)
Thanks for an awesome extension, never had a problem with it! :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.8).
Well I don't really have anything bad to say about Adblock Plus, it works the majority of the time and I have almost never had to worry about it... other than TO MAKE SURE IT'S INSTALLED ON EVERY MACHINE! ;)
Thanks for this great extension and I look forward to seeing it in FF3, when available.
This extension doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. It's simple, accurate, and does the job and with a smashing intuitive interface.
Thanks and keep up the great work! :)
