  1. To be fair, AdBlock really does seem to have issues with messing up many things that are not actually ads. Even with no flash objects in the block list, it will regularly cause flash to malfunction. As soon as you disable it, they work fine.

  2. As Kevin mentioned, AdBlock has issues. I took a little while to realize when using amazon.com my “Add to Shopping Cart” button was missing because of AdBlock. I have since gotten AdBlock Plus which allows whitelisting. There’s also a more accurate filterset (Filterset.G) out there that does a better job of detecting ads (and only ads), and gets updated to fix these things.
