I would like to stop flash and javascript loaded images from automatically loading in FF. How can I accomplish this with the use of add-ons?

Please note disabling javascript by default is not an option as many pages will not work without JS enabled. Also I currently use Flashblock to stop flash but it still allows some flash to leak through. Any ideas?

NoScript helps blocking Flash, Javascript and other "unasked-for" content. Another solution that's not restricted to a single application would consist of using a filtering proxy like privoxy. Thus, all other applications that may access content via HTTP (Thunderbird for mails in HTML, for example) will benefit from a single set of filtering rules.
