Firefox: Adblock Plus and Flash conflict

If you’re running Firefox with the Adblock Plus plugin, you may have run into the same problem I did. Some flash files would load, but others would just be blank spots, and the flash would only show when you scrolled around. After much googling and headscratching I finally figured out that you need to click the adblock plus icon in the top right of firefox, go to the options menu, and uncheck the ‘Show tabs on flash and java’ option. For some reason, when the tab is displayed (the one that lets you block objects), it screws with the width+height specifications on the embedding, and then firefox throws a wobbly and doesn’t display anything until the tab is scrolled off screen. </geek>
