msongs,
Welcome to 7 Forums.
Make sure you take a look see at all the great tutorials!
When is the last time it worked properly for you?
You might want to try a restore when everything was working properly.

maybe it is because I use "No Scripts" blocker?

pages with Flash give me the msg that I have to turn on flash to view portions of this page etc. And some pages tell me I have to uninstall and downlad the latest flash version which I already have. hmmm

When you reach a page that won't load Flash, have you changed your NoScript setting to allow that page to load?

("NoScript" does not have a trailing `s' in its name.)
