I used noscript for a while too, but decided it's overkill after also buying 20 copies of the full version of malwarebytes (I buy and sell computers more frequently than most people change underwear). For PDFs I use foxit.. even if it hasn't been doing so well lately it's still better than the adobe reader, while last I checked has bloated itself to about 240MB

That is one reason I switched to FoxIt. It is a large software company and have the resources to fix any problems. Some of the independent products don't have the resources to combat the problems. Here is the security section for FoxIt.

Foxit Software - Foxit Reader 4.1 for Windows

^^Glad they do that. Many companies just pretend they are invincible and ignore the problem altogether.

Adobe - Security Advisories: APSA10-03 - Security Advisory for Flash Player

May be fixed the week of Sept 27.
I have just stated using a FF addon call QuickJava which has buttons on the Status Bar to disable/enable flash and others on the go.
