Flash Blocker Detector
v0.1 of 2010-03-12
This script detects whether popular Flash blocking extensions are installed
and active on the current page. It is highly sensitive to the inner workings
of the extensions themselves, and it can only detect the current version
(at time of writing) of the following extensions:
* FlashBlock for Chromium / Google Chrome (#1)
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/cdngiadmnkhgemkimkhiilgffbjijcie
* FlashBlock for Chromium / Google Chrome (#2)
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gofhjkjmkpinhpoiabjplobcaignabnl
* FlashBlock for Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433
* ClickToFlash for Mac/Safari

Flash plugin but NOT overridden by ClickToFlash) when you want to actually see a Flash object.
By default, ClickToFlash with auto-allow very small Flash objects (less than 8x8 pixels),
since these are hard to click. So we can create two Flash objects (one large and one tiny)
and check whether their type attributes match. There's some racing conditions involved, so this
function is called every 100ms for several seconds (until FBD gives up altogether). THIS WOULD
BE MUCH SIMPLER IF WEBKIT WOULD IMPLEMENT THE DOMATTRMODIFIED EVENT OR HURRY UP AND SPEC OUT A
PERFORMANT REPLACEMENT.
