This is easier to do and it does the same. Go to the user "jbzoller" comment posted Jun Fri 4th 2004 6:16pm, it's the 12th comment from the top.

Install a Flash-controlling extension in Camino

There are a couple differences actually. One is strictly cosmetic. Flashblock just looks better. :)

But the solution you are referring to, I tried first. The problem is that in order to use it, your CSS has to refer to some javascript that is supposedly hosted here:

http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~jruderma/clickToView.xml

But that site actually redirects you to here:

http://www.squarefree.com/turing/clickToView.xml

So I figured, hey - I could just store the xml file (which holds javascript) locally. Nope. There is a bug in the 'zilla browsers (related to security constraints) that you can't refer to a local file in your CSS embedding. So all you could do is locate it on an http server locally, which would be a waste - in my opinion.

Flashblock seems to be a cleaner solution. As far as I can tell (I might have missed something, since I just looked through quickly) Flashblock does everything locally....
