Since it's exceptionally easy to only block the actual ads on swfchan (no ads are actually served from swfchan's own domain) and because the current ruleset is actually causing visitors to see more ads I thought this matter would be quickly resolved. However, I have been trying to contact EasyList for over three weeks now with no response. Therefore I feel the need to ask my visitors to e-mail them as well to bring attention to this issue and show that regular users of EasyList care about swfchan, not just the guy running the site.
They have two e-mails: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The first one is the primary mail but I've sent mail to both and received a reply from neither. Have sent using different mail accounts as well so I know there was no sending issues on my end. I should have written this announcement earlier but this whole thing felt like such an open-and-shut case that I would never have imagined swfchan still being blocked like this after three weeks. Big thanks to anyone helping out!
Note: I'm not writing this because of money, the site's income is actually the same as before (less visitors but less blockers equal same ad views). I am however worried that in the long run, in a year or so, this may lead to less links leading to swfchan which would sure enough finally kill it off the web, especially with the dwindling flash support these days. I also don't think this is a fair practice by EasyList, there's no reason what-so-ever to block swfchan itself. I don't serve ads and an adblocker should block ad providers, not sites that use ad providers. I also don't limit anyone blocking ads from using the site in any way. It feels like the EasyList authors took just a minute to look at swfchan, said "fuck it" and proceeded to block the whole thing instead of only the ads.
So if you have a moment I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to e-mail them about this. Just be polite and ask EasyList to block only the ads on swfchan, not the actual content on swfchan itself. There's a discussion thread over here.

I can open them successfully if I download and run them locally. If I run Firefox in safe mode they work here, though. Did something happen?

Flash plugin's active on Firefox. >> [_] Anonymous 05/19/17(Fri)22:41:56 No.3246046 >>3245998 works for me, sounds like maybe a MIME type problem? is adobe application x-shockwave-flash set to open with adobe flashplayer in settings? does it download the flash if you click on the link? maybe it's really just a screwed browser cache, delete cache, cookies, etc. "refresh" firefox (set to default settings) in worst case scenario >> [_] Anonymous 05/19/17(Fri)22:53:01 No.3246056 >>3246046 MIME typing appears to be correct. Just cleared cache and cookies, no cigar. It doesn't download the flash when I click the link, it just opens the tab and doesn't load anything. Plain white page, right-clicking doesn't bring up any Flash options. This just suddenly started a couple weeks ago. >> [_] Anonymous 05/19/17(Fri)23:09:28 No.3246061 >>3246056 Welp, sorry, I remember having something like that vagely before, but not how/if there was a solution. I also had problems with MIME type at some point. Looks like it all resolved itself after a while. Maybe wait till next firefox, and Flash update (huehue), and if it still persists just reinstall firefox or the like. Maybe a quick reinstallation of the firefox plugin would not be much trouble. Deinstall Adobe Flash Player under system software, restart PC, install from get.adobe.com again. Beyond that I'm no help I'm afraid. >> [_] Anonymous 05/19/17(Fri)23:10:36 No.3246063 >>3246056 Just thinking: got any troublesome addons installed (NoScript, Adblocker,...) Maybe something is interfering? >> [_] Anonymous 05/19/17(Fri)23:56:39 No.3246078 Make sure the flash plugin you have is up-to-date; I currently have version 25.0 r0 installed, maybe even reinstall it like >>3246061 suggested. Deactivate adblockers/no-script/whatever one at a time and see if flashes load to locate the potential troublesome addon (white list "*.4cdn.org/*" if it's one of these). Other than that you could just uninstall FF and reinstall all addons/extensions. I know it's a pain but sometimes shit just works. >> [_] Rowen frazer is a fag 05/19/17(Fri)23:58:49 No.3246081 >>3245998 I have latest firefox nightly build. most common things are in addons -> plugins set flash to the correct settings, updating flash ( no real need to restart browser, just reload webpage), and the shitty insider build on my desktop that breaks all win32 programs (except some privileged ones) due to disabling some antivirus script if you go 3rd party (defender sucks). you probably wont have the last problem but just be warned that microsoft is trying to kill off old win32 app compatibility, giving shitty software to make it a pain to work around. luckily this update for normal people will be in fall this year and businesses in 2020 with max update deferral but flash, just see what settings could have fucked up and work from there >> [_] Anonymous 05/20/17(Sat)00:03:21 No.3246082 >>3245998 I'm still using V52 from back when they fucked over anyone who still wanted to use Java/Unity plugins, have refused to update since that clusterfuck and it seems my autistic resistance to change is paying off for once. >> [_] Anonymous 05/20/17(Sat)00:12:26 No.3246086 OP here, thanks for the replies, guys. It seems like it was NoScript, the fucking kikes. Didn't think it was that since it worked fine with it enabled a couple weeks ago, but I guess they fucked with something. >> [_] Anonymous 05/20/17(Sat)02:43:04 No.3246109 Haven't been on flash in a while, first time seeing this .swf.

Try clearing your cache, and try again. You should get the swf to download properly then. Flash has been a daily bitch lately, Adobe (and everyone else) is doing everything they can to kill off Flash and make the experience as painful as possible to view swf content. They are all on the HTML5 trip. >> [_] Anonymous 05/20/17(Sat)03:50:27 No.3246123 >>3246086 It's not NoScript, it's Adobe. Trust me on this one.
