Gif Blocker: Prevent Firefox From Loading GIF Images

GIF images on websites are sometimes cute but more often than not, they are very annoying, add no aesthetic value, and only increase the loading time of the page. If you are not a big fan of gif images, you can easily block them on your browser using Gif Block, a Firefox extension that prevents the loading of GIF images on webpages.

When Gif Block is activated on your Firefox, your browser will not render the GIF images that are embedded on the websites you subsequently visit.
