    Moz: stopping strobing banner ads

    Is there anyway of stopping those animated gifs that flash. I don't care if I'm a freakin' winner I've got a head ache and flashing carp at the top of the screen isn't helping.

    In IE pressing the stop buttong will halt the animation, is this possible in Moz?

    Here's a link you might find helpful: Stop Animated GIFs in Mozilla.

    Any help???

    Edit: In later versions of Mozilla, I believe the file is "security-prefs.js" as opposed to "prefs.js".

    Look under Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Images

    There's an option labeled "Animated images should loop" with some choices. 'Never' should stop all animated gifs.

    I've also disabled Flash on my machine by renaming the plugin dll. It's a shame but too many advertisers seem to think they can gain customers by annoying them.

    Good call BrainJar, I completely missed that setting before, I see it now though . Much simpler than the suggestion I posted .
