I have tried to install Firefox Adblocker so that I don't get these annoying flashing ads on web pages, but don't seem to be getting anywhere with it. I clicked on "Install" and was then asked to restart Firefox, but it has no effect when I go to a website. Also I thought I should be able to see Adblocker somewhere in my Programs list, but can't do so. Is there anything anyone can suggest? Thanks.

Get NoScript and you can block all flash from loading. or http://noscript.net/

Your need to go to the options, Embeddings. Then check the boxes that you want to Forbid. Then check "Show placeholder icon" and that will show the place the flash was block and if you do want to see the flash then you just click the placeholder and the page will reload and the flash will play.

It's a great program but you got to learn how to set it up so you can get to the sites you use and what java script and then export your setting on the whitelist so you can import it on other PC's or in case you redo your PC your have the list.

Thanks! Found it did the job right away, and wasn't too difficult to setup.
