    Prevent flash from loading


    Hi, is there anything I can do to tell Firefox not to load at all a flash presentation, banner, image, anything made in flash.

    I usually have a regular 56k modem connection and it is too much for it.

    Thanks.

    great thanks a lot, I actually have a lot of problems finding info in their webpage (no idea why, but it happens).

    So another question is, can I download the plugins and store them?

    Yes. They get downloaded as XPI files if I'm not mistaken. Just right click on one of the download links, do a "Save As..." and save it somewhere. I do this for particularly useful plugins that I want to have on disc or my USB drive in case I need to reinstall. On the subject of ad-blocking extensions, I'm also a fan of Ad-Block.
