How can you block flash player based ads?

I am using Avant built in ad blocker and I use ABP sometimes too but I can't ever figure out how to block Flash based ads.

    If you use any of these browsers Firefox 1.5 to Firefox 3.6a (trunk), Flock, and Intel Midbrowser, Mozilla Suite 1.7.x, Seamonkey 1.0a to 2.0, Netscape 7 to 9.0

    You can use this plugin

    http://flashblock.mozdev.org/

    It blocks Flash Players and leaves a play button.Unless you click the play button the flash content wont load... Uses...saves you bandwidth and speed...

    Edit

    =====

    Another useful tool...

    Along with ABP you can use "Adblock Plus:Element Hiding Helper 1.0.6" to filter out any kind of element in webpages(Flash content,text content, Parts of a webpage etc..)

    You'll get it if you google it for your browser type...

    Ps (Its an additional plugin to your existing ABP)

    I think you're talking about the flash ads that play on websites you visit. There's a brilliant website/program my friend talked about a while ago, where it cuts webpages you visit and blocks out every single ad on it. However, I don't have it anymore and I forgot the name; I'm just suggesting it's out there somewhere.

    EDIT: Nevermind, the question above me just said the program, hahaha. Now I can finally re-download it :D!

    Switch to Firefox. Once it's up and running, run a search for the extensions. There's a very good one called Flashblocker, and another one called Adblocker. Installing both will cut down your bandwidth usage.
