100% working / Read the How To Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works exactly as advertised with Firefox 43.0.4
HOW TO: The add-on is out of date so upon the first installation the icon won't show up in your browers add-on-bar and you have to do the following:
You need to install: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/the-addon-bar/
With this bar installed the Gif Block icon will now show up, then move the icon from the new add-on-bar to your actual Firefox add-on-bar. After that you can remove the additional toolbar add-on.
Since I'm sitting on limited bandwith this add-on is very important to me and sadly there doesn't seem to be other add-ons that offer the same features.

@RenardSolitaire "The Addon Bar (restored)" Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I installed https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/the-addon-bar/ and finally saw the Gif Block option. Thanks.
Add-on needs update.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
To make this add-ons work you just need to make your add-ons bar showing up via the menu-options and then, right click the Gif Block icon to select "enable or disable". It will block the browser to load new .gif image who are not in your browser cache to be downloaded so it can save a lot of time and internet use.
With the new Firefox 29, Mozilla removed the add-ons, mudules bar so you need to bring it back with an add-ons like "The Addon Bar (restored)"
I use the Gif Block add-ons since months with any windows firefox computer i can use to browse the web and it worked on all of them. This add-ons will not start blocking .gif at the moment you install it. The right click on the Gif Block icon in the add-ons, modules bar is the key.
Mozilla needs to sweep Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Firefox really needs to sweep such old extensions which no longer works from its add-ons library.
Doesn't work for me in Google Reader Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I installed this primarily to stop animated gifs from loading in Google Reader. This extension, so far, has done nothing about that.

Good concept, but most gif images do not need to be blocked, only the animated gifs. Please redesign this to discriminate between static and animated gifs and then set it up to be a toggle so that one may toggle a single image if they wish to watch its animation without unblocking all animated gifs. Just a suggestion, but it might be easier to simply freeze all animated gifs on the first frame when this extension has animated gif blocking active for all web pages. Then you could allow a single image toggle that would unfreeze or refreeze an image. It is very important to be able to REfreeze an animate gif after you take a look at it and are done with it.
Хорошо, но немного не то. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Крайне полезный инструмент для тех, кому не нравятся мигания, сверкания и мельтешение баннеров.
UPD: я тоже хотел бы, чтобы инструмент не GIF-файлы блокировал все подряд как сейчас, а лишь брал у анимированных GIF-ов 1 кадр и вставлял его - то есть именно анимацию блокировать нужно, а не все GIF-файлы.

i give u 5star for your think
but please update it for better than now
please recreate it with only gif animate blocking, and not block all other gif,
and if u can create a best engine for it for block with size of files
for example if one jpg file very big this script block that image

This does not block aaaaaaaaaannnythiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!
Ok but heavy handed approach Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It works by completely removing all .gif images so they can't load but it also blocks useful non-animating type gifs on some sites, like dictionary sites (merriam-webster, tfd), that use gifs to show the audio icon or pronunciation key.
A better approach would be to load the gif images and then stop any gifs that are animating. Or offer it as a separate option. I know pressing the Esc key stops any animating gifs. Maybe you could have this addon automatically press the Esc key after the page is done loading or something.
