Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. load any page with a flash plugin 2. try to turn it off 3. you can't Actual Results: NA Expected Results: NA A really cool feature with Firefox is that it allows you to control what sites you receive images from. When I'm at imdb.com, I turn off images from places like c4.maxserving.com and ads.that_annoy_you.com. Most Very Excellent. However I can't turn flash off. I was looking through the Demo '06 who's who section at CNET and the flash ads drove me nuts, so I gave up after the third page and tried to figure out how to turn flash off so I could read the articles. Can't do it, at least I can't figure out how, and it isn't listed in the help docs. You might argue that this is a feature request. I think it's a bug. I'm sending a nasty email to CNET and removing their RSS feed, because for me, their content is unreadable. -- Cheers! Rick.
There are different ways to switch flash off. With a bookmarklet per site, with extensions per site (I believe toolbar enhancements and prefbuttons do this), the extension flashblock replaces flash by clickable placeholders, and there is a .css code to hide all flash. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 19118 ***
