It would be nice to have the following: pop-up blocker was nice, but there is other kinds of annoying things. Especially, flash content that overlaps a webpage, banners and similar. From a given web page right click... select block and have a list of fetched url domains and then block such web content. Blocking specific "script,object,embed,img,a href" section would be nice also. for instance, http://ads.xxxx.com/ads/content.php?src=...' Meaning that firefox should not download any content from there, unless unblocked from now on, wether it is: text, flash, images, video, music or anything else. putting a placeholder download link red box - [blocked] instead which can be downloaded if you click on it. For instance, a user might want to see: http://my.com/content.swf but not: http://my.com/banner.swf http://my.com/intro.wav It saves some bandwidth on slow connection and it avoids seeing unwanted and undesired ads or content. Of course the block should be sorted by subdomain, path, file, file type. Even using Regexp blocking would be nice if possible. Such that one could discriminate at various degree globally or only for a given site. One way before was to not have the flash player, but that doesn't always work since some website really needs flash. Sincerely yours, Fred
