  • (2019-10-02) J J: A pile of SHEET is more useful than this extension. And I am being kind.
  • (2019-04-09) Marcus Santiago: It works, but it seems it won't listen when you try to instruct it to trust a site. So it just blocks everything, all the time, even on sites where you WANT it to allow video.
  • (2019-01-02) Jonny wahlstedt: bra
  • (2018-11-30) Peter Gerresheim: It works for most flash content, but recently it seems to have been screwing with Youtube's embeds on some sites; they'll show up fine for a while, but then the embeds just *vanish* suddenly. Rather annoying, to be honest.
  • (2018-09-14) James Wales: It has stopped working on this site and only this site. Every time I visit the site, it's as if I don't have the extension installed even though I do. I tried posting this in "support," but the "publish" button would not respond to being clicked on https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=MRX&product=NCR&overlay=11101111&loop=yes

  • (2018-01-22) -『I』『I』『I』-: This use to work great. I'm guessing the developer went and did something unnecessary to it (like they always do), and now it doesn't work at all 😒..(smh)
  • (2018-01-22) Debra Obinna: Does not work with Linux.
  • (2017-12-02) Michael B: Doesn't work, doesn't block anything.
  • (2017-09-28) Vincent Vigliaturo: video adds and videos still play!!! i am on caped internet and auto videos should be illegal.
  • (2017-07-20) Roberto Cravallo: Works ok, but: There is a "Allow" for everything, but no disallow/block option. So once I allow a page/site, there is no easy way back.
  • (2017-06-27) Alex W.: Great extension. Not sure how useful it is anymore though, since Chrome seems to block most flash on its own now.
  • (2017-06-20) Gentle: To flash player επιβάλεται να πεθάνει, HTML5 like a boss όπως λένε μερικοί!!!! FlashControl-->off FlashDisable-->on Thats all!!!
  • (2017-06-16) DexterM: Народ устанавливайте себе Magic Actions for YouTube и не партесь, зайдите в настройки приложения там все есть.
  • (2017-06-15) Does not work, only slows things down drastically.
  • (2017-04-03) Andrew: I found it useless now. It no longer blocks the player in http://player.listenlive.co/34461/en/songhistory/ like it used to be able to.
  • (2017-03-29) Jim Kent: норм

  • (2019-07-15, v:9.4) Tori Organna: FlashControl and the data it looks at/stores
    I work for a medical office as the IT administrator- I've used Flash Control for my personal use for awhile and I love it. I would love to use Flash Control for all the computers I manage for my job as an additional security measure (in case an employee visits a random site for personal use that uses Flash)however, being in the medical field, a lot of the sites used in our day to day operations display patient data which is protected via HIPPA. So my question is does Flash Control even actually look at the contents of web pages beyond just scanning for flash applets/players to block? If it does, does it store or transmit any of that data anywhere? I looked and could not find any documentation reguarding privacy practices and/or what specific data Flash Control uses/stores. (Note: As it is being used for a buisness, if its TOU, or license requires purchase for such use I apologize profusely as nothing on the Chrome extension page nor in the extension settings I saw mentioned this.) Thank you for your time both in developing this extension (and releasing it for free) and reading my question. Sincerely, Joshua McCleerey IT Administrator email: [email protected] McCleerey Family Medicine
