Are you looking for a simple way to get more control over the flash content on the internet? Adobe Flash may not be the most stable plugin, at least, that’s what I think because it keeps on crashing at my side. Obviously, you can completely disable it as well by going to about:plugins but this way, you may miss some stuff that might come in handy, and even YouTube.
