I depend very much on PrefBar and recommend everyone use it.  However,
its handling of Flash -- disabling and enabling Flash by diddling with
the Flash plugin -- always seems problematical.

I use FlashBlock from <http://flashblock.mozdev.org/>.  I also created a
PrefBar checkbox to enable and disable FlashBlock.  I know that Manuel
Reimer (PrefBar developer) is not happy with this, but I recommend it as
much superior over the capability inherent solely in PrefBar.

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.
