sp14: no longer blocks flash content in ad blocking Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
This is odd. On foodnetwork.com, if I use the block expression:

http://ai\.foodnetwork\.com/webfood/images/header/fn_header\.swf

The header SWF file is NOT blocked -- but the square Flash ad is!

If I try to make it more general:

http://ai\.foodnetwork\.com/webfood/images/.*\.swf

Then nothing is blocked.

In FF, if I use the AdBlock string:

http://ai.foodnetwork.com/webfood/images/header/fn_header.swf

the top banner is GONE.

In Safari, with SafariBlock, I can use

http://ai.foodnetwork.com/*.swf to whack them all.

I went straight from SP12 to SP15, and flash stopped being blocked on http://insidemacgames.com/forum/.
 
It looks like there is a problem with blocking flash / plug-in content right now. We've already fixed it for the next release though so hopefully this will be working better for you soon!
 
Great! Hope to see 16 any day now.
 
This would be a godsend . . .
 
Ahh, sweet. Glad it's been fixed. I've been getting a bit annoyed. ;)
 
Flash blocking now works, but I can no longer tell OW to load the flash animation. Am I missing something, or is this feature still in the process of being implemented? I remember being able to tell OW 5.1 to load a flash file by simply clicking on it.

You can't click to load blocked plug-in content. This is a known issue.
