Try using NoScript and in the advanced area under options have it block flash too. Then you'll never be knocked out of your chair by some loud flash ad. But if a site has something in flash you want to see you can temporarily enable the flash for that site. If the site doesn't use those type of ads and you trust the site you can permanently allow all scripts on that one site. It's also a huge boost in security, when you consider most Firefox vulnerabilities are javascript related.

You are requesting a feature here that can't be implemented in Adblock or even in Firefox itself. This is something that only Flash Player developers can tweak, you should ask them.

Unless you want to block Flash entirely of course which doesn't seem to be the case.

also flash authors could build that into their animations (but good luck convincing all of them to do it)

And these reasons are why NoScript is great for this. Trust me it works.
