  1. Get flashblock.xpi from flashblock.mozdev.org
  2. unzip the .xpi file (which is a .zip)
  3. put the flashblock.jar file into /usr/share/galeon/chrome
  4. Create a file /usr/share/galeon/chrome/flashblock.manifest with the contents in one line:
    content flashblock jar:file:///usr/share/galeon/chrome/flashblock.jar!/content/flashblock/
  5. edit ~/.galeon/mozilla/galeon/chrome/userContent.css and add this line:
    @import url(chrome://flashblock/content/flashblock.css);
