How do I reverese Firefox's default handling of animated GIFs?
October 17, 2010 2:55 PM   Subscribe

Anyone know of a way to get Firefox to disable animated GIFs by default, then enable them by pressing the ESC key?

So what I'd like is to reverse the default behavior, where GIFs play automatically and to stop them you have to hit ESC. There's an about:config setting that turns them off permanently, but that's not quite what I'm looking for.

Thanks

Anidisable does this. It's no longer updated for the newest version of Firefox, but here are instructions to enable it.

Thanks for the suggestion but I have the same problem as the commenter in the second linked site--when using Firefox 3.6 there's no context menu & and the Options button doesn't work.
