If you use Firefox but you dislike animated elements on web pages when you’re reading (like ads – increasingly served from Google AdSense, too), here’s what you can do:

  • Use the Flashblock extension (provided you have Flash installed in the first place). This will put a placeholder over any Flash, allowing you to click it before the Flash shows. (To specifically allow a website to show Flash you can open the Tools -> Add-ons -> Flashblock options dialog and enter e.g. “www.youtube.com”.)
  • Disable animated GIFs. To do so, type about:config into the Firefox address bar. Look for the entry “image.animation_mode”, double-click it and set its value to “none” (no quotes).
