    Can you do it, and if so, how? I don't see any options for doing so.

    With IE you can do it through:

    Internet Options
    > Advanced Tab
    > Multimedia
    - then unchecking the box that says "Play animations in web pages"

    The only way I can think to do it would be to import my IE internet options into Firefox, but I don't want to do that because everything is vastly different between my two browsers. I'm thinking there has to be a simple way to do this, but I just can't find it.

    I appreciate the help. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year esteemed Wilders members!

    Try this:

    1) Open the config options (about:config)

    2) Type "animation"

    3) Set it to "none"

    4) Restart browser

    Every time you visit a website that has embedded animated GIFs, you'll only see the first frame.

    If you want to do it manually on "noisy" pages, try hitting ESC. :thumb:
