This is one of the most useful add-ons for Mozilla that I have seen. However it needs to block flash animations using whitelists, like Mozilla currently does for pop-ups, becuase most Flash animations are just irritating gimics, or adverts. It's only occasionally you come across a website that forces you to enter through the flash animation. If you try blocking Flash ads using blacklist you will need an infinate amount of filters.
