Do NOT disable then Uninstall Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I had this disabled and then uninstalled the app, then NO images would display. I had to re-install the addon then enable it to get images to show up again.
Where is "Load cached image only" ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The best. Blocked image replaced by an empty frame, so websites does not looks aweful.
But I need to always see cached image for certain sites.
Not working with Firefox 56 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Not working at least since Firefox 56 (alpha).
Best user friendly add on ever!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I can't sing the praises of this excellent add on enough. Very easy, simple and convenient to use, it is free from all the cumbersome white list and black list nonsense that other image blockers have. Unlike IE image blocker (which is inconvenient and time consuming to activate), this image blocker is right at your fingertip whenever you need it. It takes only a second to activate and it works so well and smooth. Its the most intuitive and user friendly add on out there. Thank you Herman Vats for keeping this so simple and uncomplicated. Great job dude!!!

Little backdoor (?) Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Under Google Image, you have a lovely white pages and don't see any images. But if you click anywhere on the white page you reach the image ...
Anyway a good tool
Works well/Funciona in Palemoon 27(based in FF28 UI) Rated 4 out of 5 stars
recommendable! It adds an icon to the tool bar, with "customize toolbar" menu can me removed or added, etc
Doesn't revert Permissions.default.image to default when it's removed Rated 3 out of 5 stars
You need to manually revert
Permissions.default.image to 1 in about:config to allow images to be displayed after removing this add-on
Works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works well for for I need it for - simply blocks images on fb, etc. saving you bandwidth.
Unfortunately does not work for the only reason I downloaded it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It does not block base64 encoded images at all, which was the purpose I had in mind for it, since adblock doesn't do that either. *sigh* Oh well ...
Does what it does well Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Don't be put off by the negative reviews. The plugin is quite limited, but it does exactly what it says: block images while browsing. Note that it does not block the images on a page that is already loaded--if you find that a page is displaying images you don't want to see, you'll have to turn this on and reload the page.
With the proliferation of soft porn on even "respectable" sites, this is a valuable tool for those who value their minds and hearts.
block everything without problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One click and every image is blocked. It really helpful for people with slow connection like me :) Usually website won't load but now with this I can set it so only text appear
Not satisfied Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Although it does block images, as it says. I was looking for an app that block's individual images. For example, I browse a site that has one particular unwanted image that advertises but is not detected by adblock plus. I find that adblock only block's images linked by a url. image block kills all images on the page, even the one's I am browsing.
Works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Simple yet effective. Useful in corporate environments... thank you very much Hemant!
The images are gone forever Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I have the latest version of Mozilla Firefox and after I tried this add-on, my images were completely gone - even when I disabled this add-on, deleted it, restarted my PC.
I installed it again and tried to delete again, didn't help.
I ended up refreshing Mozilla, so all my add-ons, themes, etc. are lost now. God bless the Firefox Devs for saving at least bookmarks, journal and tabs.
Thank you very much. I only wanted to have a convinient tool to turn it on the sites which are loaded with unnecessary photos and turn it off, when I'm actually googling PICTURES.
Not happy at all. Sorry.
It is such a amazing addon that i need it Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am a seo consultant and make backlink for my client site,but website having image make it slow process as those take much time to load but after installing this plugin i am able to do my best.
Many many thanks to its developer and mozilla organization
What's wrong? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I was trying to help the dev to fix a problem but my review was gone! What's wrong?This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Same problem for me!
My reply to your review doesn't seem to appear as well. Anyway, I did get your message through my site comments section. I'll work to fix the bug you have pointed in the next release. Thanks
Very spartan, but better than nothing Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Either all images load, or no images load. A toolbar button toggles the "load images" state. Basically it's Firefox's old "load images automatically" preference, with a button.
If you want to see one image, you can click the toolbar button and reload the page to load all of the images on that page, then click the toolbar button again to continue blocking images.
Update: "Simple Image Blocker" does exactly the same thing, but doesn't require you to restart Firefox to install/enable/disable it, so I'm uninstalling "Image Block".
What you have pointed out is actually the intended behavior for this addon. Although, it does a little more than toggling the "Load images automatically" config option.
I've deliberately kept the scripting to a bare minimum to ensure negligible load on the host CPU. A lot of people are using firefox mobile devices. A heavily scripted addon (with possibly more features) would require more hardware resources, which would in-turn lead to other problems. The most critical of these would be the battery running out faster!
The toolbar button can be moved! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
- The toolbar button can be moved!
- The developer listens to the users.
- Images are blocked which other add-ons do not currently block due to a Firefox bug.
- Some embedded images are hidden.
- When clicked, the status of the toolbar button is not updated in other Firefox windows. One window will show that images are enabled while another window shows the opposite. Moving the button to the menu popup area makes matters worse, since new windows always begin with the button showing that images are enabled. Also in the menu popup, the button will sometimes continue showing that images are enabled while the text tooltip indicates the true status.
- Embedded images are displayed in Google search results, such as YouTube video thumbnails.
- Some images on Amazon (embedded) and Wikipedia (not embedded) appear very briefly before being hidden. The external Wikipedia image behavior may be the result of Firefox bug 1196784, which should be fixed in version 48.
To the developer: Firefox bug 331257 was reported in 2006 and remains open. It lists some of the many reasons people may wish to hide embedded images. I hope reading them will fully convince you that hiding them is the correct decision. Thank you for continuing to support this important add-on!
Thanks for a detailed review! I'll fix the multi-window bug in the next update. I'll also look into the firefox bug indicated.
