IF you look at the "popularity" (downloads) of the Firefox add-ons you 
have (out of 461 plugins):

1. Personas Plus - "skins" for Firefox
2. Ad-Block Plus - block ads from sites
3. Video Downloader - download youtube like videos.
4. NoScript - Keeps scripting, including Flash, from running by default.
38. FlashBlock - Blocks Flash content until explicitly asked for.

It's interesting that the 4th and 38th (and maybe the 2nd) most popular 
Firefox add-ons block Flash content from websites.
