By the way, there was a strange browser, years back, that hid all graphics, unless you moused over them. It was designed to hide easily, too, for people to browse, covertly, whilst at work.

It hides in another window. MSPaint, another browser, Word, &c. for instance.

Probably not what you're after. Just giving-out a little bit of history. :D

I'm bumping this to the top, so as to be able to find it easily on the laptop. (I'm writing this from the desktop machine.)

This desktop machine, with standard keyboard, is soooo much easier for me to work. And, I like my regular mouse better than the substitute on the laptop.:D

About this Add-on Image Blocker Plus lets you block all images, and visual elements. You can allow a page to show images by adding it to the white list. Some websites are added by default, but you can add or remove items at any time. Important Features: 1. Allows you to block all image contents (including flash objects) in all webpages. 2. Easily switch the extension On or Off from toolbar panel 3. Add or remove websites to the white-list from toolbar panel

It doesn't seem to do it on the fly, though. Seems you need to restart (A common pita, with Firefox). One reason that I still use opera 12, is that you CAN do these things, on the fly, dead easily.

:D

I'll need to look through these. Ideally, I'd like to be able to choose images or no images for each tab. (I'm one of those people who like to have an e-mail tab open, a weather tab, a KF tab, etc. most of the time.)

I have never heard of that, before. I have only used Firefox with whatever it had on original installation. (Oh, it may interact with Adobe for pdf--does that count?)

In addition to the URL posted after your query, one of the add ons that I use is "Flash Block". You can, with it, either temporarily disable it, or create a white list of sites that you do want it (Flash) to work on.

Flash in particular is VERY frequently updated, and its autoupdate feature does NOT work for me.

You will have to query Firefox for the correct URL for your location.

I have been using Ruby's desktop computer, which is slower than the most recent ones (less video memory, I think), and crowded web pages load slowly.

I am now using Firefox, but I remember that when I used Opera some years back, I used to be able to check a box which would block displays of pictures. So, I could look at a web-zine page and get the text to read quickly, while only markers would appear for images/pics which didn't really interest me, anyway. (IIRC, Opera would let me click on one of those markers to see the pic if it interested me, but I did not have to wait while everything in a whole catalog of pictures loaded).


Does Firefox have any feature like this? How do I access it?
