How do I turn off the distracting animated thumbnail images on the Internet Archive?

The Internet Archive (archive.org) is a fantastic resource, but the thumbnail images that appear of books (in search results, for example) constantly flash different pages. This never-ending (and pointless, as far as I can see) flashing of thumbnail images throughout this website is very distracting and annoying to me; however I can't seem to figure out how to turn this off (I can't seem to find an answer to this question on the site itself).
Can anyone provide a user setting or a Firefox plugin or some other way of viewing the Internet Archive's wonderful collection of materials without being tormented by flashing images? I'm tired of having to resize my browser window or to put post-it notes on my screen in order to read a old text in relative peace.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
