Hi,

I love your adblock app (although it increases memory usage and crashes FF sometimes). What would make it much better, would be if i could block those damn banners that are advertising Emoticons for your e-mails and they talk. Theyre Flash player stuff witch is .SWF format.

I hope in your next version you support this format!

Thanks!

Longer version of what Zacharias already said:

1. Ctrl-Shift-F to create flash overlay(s)
2. Left click the desired flash overlay
3. Create filter
4. Repeat 3 for all unwanted flashitems on the page (remember one wildcard/regexp filter may be able to block them all)
5. Ctrl-Shift-F again to remove flash overlay(s)
