It blocks. That's it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It does block flash animation and videos. But there is no option to play them. In Youtube, for example, the "play button" when pressed will only play sound, no video.
Why do you still exesist Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This add on is getting worse or the flash ads are getting way better? I stopped using this ad on a few years ago due to it's constant failure and now it does not even do what it is allegedy supposed to do. In addition most pages ie youtube don't even load video correctly after installing it even after whitelisting the web page! I would give you negative stars but alas I can't but I wish I could

It does block, but doesn't play Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I'll give it two stars because it does appear to block the flash and that's what it's supposed to do. However, there is no "button" option to play the flash videos on demand. Nothing plays any longer. I don't want to whitelist an entire site because I didn't 't want all of the videos to play, only the select ones I want. So it defeats the purpose.

Needs updating Rated 1 out of 5 stars
No longer works on Youtube. Even though it prevents the video from showing, it's still running - and gobbling up data.
Does not block sound Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Does not block sound. No switch on/off
Makes it much worse Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Only the video features are blocked not the audio. So when I tried to turn the audio off - I couldn't!! Worse than non-functional.
Since last release, doesn't work as intgended Rated 1 out of 5 stars
No way to toggle on/off; if there is something (YOUTUBE, for example) that you want to see, you need OPTIONS, ADD-ONs, Disable FLASHBLOCK, Reload FIREFOX. Then after viewing, OPTIONS, ADD-ON, Enable FLASHBLOCK, Reload FIREFOX. Sure would be nice if they'd roll back to the version that actually worked as intended....USED to be a nice product.
No e10s support Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Good functionality, but it doesn't support the modern firefox feature -- multi-process usage to effectively distribute the load.
Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
On Youtube, it replaces the video with the button like it says it will, but it doesn't stop the audio; then when I try to get the video to play by clicking the button I just end up with a loading icon. This used to work great, now its completely useless.
not as smooth as it was Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The addon is fine but there is quite a number of cases where I have to turn off flashblock as a whole in order to visualize a page or a site. This is quite annoying because the command "allow flash from this site" should be enough. Well, better be safe than hurt but still ...
Ausnahmen werden auch geblockt Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Leider blockt flashblock die zugefügten Ausnahmen.
Vielleicht ein Bug ?
Firefox e10s Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Are you working on e10s compatibility, Philip?
Still works, with caveats. Youtube sound only with black video may be due to NoScript. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Flashblock successfully blocks all autoplaying videos, and that's great. I can open multiple tabs on sites that autoplay, without nervously rushing to pause the videos on the new tabs before they make my PC unresponsive.
Unfortunately, it's not so great at letting them start. While most of the time there are no problems, some things can't be used at all with Flashblock enabled, some require multiple refreshes, and some need perfectly timed clicks on the FB play button after a refresh before something else loads and blocks the video from starting completely.
In any case, there's a very good workaround - move the Flashblock toolbar button somewhere convenient, and use it to disable the extension when something can't be started because of it. It only works on reload of the page, which means any other open tabs won't be affected and suddenly start playing. But it also means you have to reload the page you're on, and you have to remember to re-enable Flashblock afterwards. Still, it's the most convenient option we have available.
And a note to people who experience a particular problem on YouTube - the video starts playing anyway with sound only on a black screen, and the visuals can't be started at all. Make sure NoScript is not installed (or just inactive?). It's right there in the description, and I had the same problem until I uninstalled NoScript.
Finally, since HTML5 seems to be the source of much of Flashblock's woes, I recommend unticking "Block HTML5 video as well" in FB's options, using Firefox's built-in function instead - in about:config, set "media.autoplay.enabled" to false.
