To begin with, an Add-on is just that- an Add-on, and is not installed 
by default in Firefox; you need to deliberately install it.

And one doesn't install an Add-on without knowing what it does.

And the problem has nothing to do with FlashBlock - all Flashblock does 
is to place a symbol/icon for you to click on if you want to accept the 
Flash app.

Think about that.

It is NoScript which is the Add-on which you need to pay attention to.

Read what NoScript does.
