How to Stop Animations
« on: October 23, 2010, 02:46:28 PM »
There are times when animated gifs bother people.  To stop them, this is a good tutorial.

This will work on all animations, from animated smilies to bigger animations.

You can also type in once, instead of none if you'd like to see it once, and then have it stop.(in Firefox)

You can also hit 'Esc' after you have loaded a page to stop them for that page at that time.

Also from the above link one can permanently block GIF animations in your browser, do the following:

In Firefox - Type about:config and change the value of string image.animation_mode from normal to none.

In Internet Explorer - Tools -> Options -> Advance. Uncheck the box in Multimedia group that says "Play animations in web pages"
