It says here to use 1.3.9. Maybe it needs to be updated?
Before I could install a different version of flashblock, I had to uninstall
it. Having an extension that can't be easily uninstalled is really not a
good idea! It took many tries to finally get rid of Mnenhy completely, which
for me caused more problems than it resolved, and then I still had to
uninstall flashblock. I didn't want to mess around with a new install of
Mnenhy, so I opted for the double dose of the extension manager and the
extension uninstaller API, which worked pretty well, although I still had to
remove references of flashblock in other files to get my personal toolbar to
look normal. Then In installed flashblock version 1.3.11, and everything
seems to be fine for now. Thanks for your help.
