How To Save Flash Games in Firefox using AdBlock Plus extension. [HowTo]

You may know AdBlock Plus plugin for Firefox as a pretty good way to block ads on websites. What you may not know is that it can be used to download flash media embedded in web pages like a flash game. See the screen cast where I download a super cool game "4 Wheel Madness" from flashgames247.com
(Safe for work, no audio)

In case you can't understand from the video, here are the steps to follow:

  1. Go to the page having the game. In this example it is http://www.flashgames247.com/play/754.html
  2. When the flash content loads, you get a link named "block" that AdBlock Plus have added to the top right corner of the game. Click on it.
  3. In the window that pops up, copy the location of the swf file and cancel the pop up.
  4. In a new tab paste that address and hit enter. When the game loads, select File -> Save Page As and save the swf file to your computer.
  5. Now you can play that game even when you are not connected to internet by opening that swf file in Firefox or IE.

Happy Gaming.
