I noticed that Flash movies are not shown with Firefox 3 if they're added with a valid xhtml syntax. The code uses only <object> tag without the <embed> tag as shown in A List Apart (http://www.alistapart.com/articles/flashsatay/) or Ambience.sk (http://www.ambience.sk/flash-valid.htm). Sites like Youtube and Adobe.com work ok so the problem may not be in the Flash player.

Also the Flash movies were displayed properly with Firefox 2. After updating to FF 3 they were not shown anymore.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Firefox 3 and Adobe Flash (9.0.124.0).
2. Visit a site with a Flash movie added with valid xhtml syntax. Examples http://www.4f.fi (on the left side should be a Flash movie) or http://www.hurmaavahamina.fi/ (the whole site should be a Flash movie)
3.

"Bug" fixed. Adblock's most recent version is blocking the Flash movies. Thus the problem is not in Firefox itself.
