    Can anybody tell me what the correct term is for the "blinking avatars" that folks often use in forums? I could post an example thread from a Tweaktown forum, but I hope this is enough to describe what I mean.

    What I'm trying to do is to disable the refresh / display of those types of images; the constant blinking drives me absolutely mad o_O making it impossible to view some threads.

    I've searched FF add-ons for something that might do this, but the only ones I've seen are to disable all image display which is not what I want, but perhaps there is a specific search term that might reveal a better solution.

    Does this work for animated avatars? I can bear animated smilies/emoticons but animated avatars drive me nutz.

    Yes, that setting affects all GIF images.

    FYI. Clicking the ESC Key will temporarily disable the Animated GIFs as well.
