Firefox2 image-blocking routine. I invoked it but can't turn it off.

Within bwilmot's post about nepenthe0's annoying Roadrunner Cartoons, cmiller5400 mentioned the concept of blocking the images from Photobucket.

I found the desired listing within the Firefox2 right click menu - and removed ALL trace of Roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote. Then it dawned on me that I wouldn't be able to see any of the much-vaunted comic pictures as featured in the Friday Yuk, so went off to disable the said routine.

But I can't find it !!

It's not in the right-hand-click menu, it's not in the Add-Ons dialogue box, it's nowhere in the Toolbars.

Anyone know how I can enjoy the Friday Yuk and just utilize the block for reading illustrated tech posts??

Oops. Posted before I saw that.

So much for concrete evidence.

We have already seen that the moderator...

edited it first. Removing it only AFTER moderator editing is disingenuous at best, childish at worst.

Then again, placing it there in the first place, out of some sort of spite, was pretty childish.

Have you tried... ?

under preferences:
"Load images is the next preference. It is enabled by default. This preference also has an Exceptions list, though it works slightly different from the extensions/themes exceptions list. From this list, you can both allow and deny permission for sites to load images. For instance, if the Load images preference is enabled, you can use the Exceptions list to deny specific sites the ability to load images. If, for example, you did not want wikibooks.org to load images, you would type "wikibooks.org" in the Address of the web site box, and hit Deny. All other sites would be allowed to load images as normal.

If the Load images preference was disabled, then no images would be downloaded. However, if (again for example) you wanted wikibooks.org to be allowed to load images, then you would type "wikibooks.org" in the Address of the web site box, this time hitting Allow. All images would be blocked except images from wikibooks.org. Both types (allowed sites and denied sites) can be set at the same time, but would depend on the state of the Load images preference." (shamelessly stolen from: [ http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Using_Firefox/Preferences ])
just an idea, I hope it helps. -d
