Images are the heaviest components on a webpage and they can eat up a lot of internet bandwidth. If you are on a low bandwidth connection you can easily reduce bandwidth usage by disabling images from loading in Firefox.
Disabling images from loading is pretty simple and you do not need to add any Firefox add-ons . Follow the simple steps to disable images in Firefox.
Disable Images from Loading in Firefox
Step 1: Go to Tools -> Options in Firefox.
Step 2: Go to the content tab and de-select the checkbox next to Load images automatically.
Step 3: If you want certain sites to still load images you can click on the Exceptions button and add the URLs of the sites that you want images to load for.
That’s it the images will not load in Firefox unless you load it explicitly by right clicking on the image. If you are looking to block images for only certain sites you can always right click on a image on the page and select Block images from domain nameâ€¦.
Or a better solution would be to use the Image Block extension which will allow you to selectively block images on certain sites.
