The JavaScript/Greasemonkey version of another FlashBlock by Alexey Ruzanov ( probably also works in IE, if one can somehow insert that into all received HTML. Like maybe by using "Greasemonkey for IE" -- – Arjan Feb 2 '10 at 22:49

A solution to IE and Firefox together would be some proxy server like privoxy.

There, set a rule to block all .swf files.

When blocking content, privoxy gives a link instead of the blocked content to temporarily unblock it.

{+block{Flash Content.} +handle-as-image} 
# Block and replace with image
