On http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail.html ... I noticed the bottom Flash (navigation menu) was missing after I hit play. I am using AdBlock v0.5 d2 Nightly Bug 39 and Flashblock v1.3.1.

Is anyone else having this problem with their Mozilla v1.7.7? Thank you in advance. Smile

Since embedded Flash objects has their own context menu, it's impossible to add an Adblock item to it. When the Object Tabs option is enabled, Adblock attack a small tab with an "Adblock" liable to each Flash object (and possibly other object as well), thus making it easier to block, since those tabs are made of HTML and you can add options to it's context menu.

The problem with Object Tabs is that sometimes they disrupt the layout of the page. Personally, I never turn them on. If I need ti identify an object I want to block, I use the "Overlay Flash" option in the Adblock menu.

Ahhh! I see what that Object Tabs option does. Where is this Overlay Flash option? I do not see it.

Thanks. Interesting too. This thing needs to be added to Adblock menu or something. Smile

FYI. http://bugzilla.mozdev.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9888 -- "Still doesn't explain why AdBlock wants to set the visibility of the flash object to hidden though."
