- by Lain_13, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5…and I feel fine. It stands for it's name and blocks images. If it will support showing already loaded images but block loading new images it will be even better.This review is for those, who want to block ads and decided to pick this extension for this purpose. It's a wrong idea, a very very wrong idea. This extension have nothing to do with blocking ads. It just happen to block them together with everything else. Search for Adblock Plus if you want to block ads - ABP much more suited for this purpose.
- by Kalganiyans, 8 years agoRated 3 out of 5It works, BUT what if one is searching for the House Plan Drawings and don't want to see the ads etc? As it blocks the images of entire page which means nothing to see.
Is it possible to make like any unwanted image/ad could be blocked by clicking on it with some key combination?
*Just an idea and food for thoughts :-)
- by Uncle MythMan, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5Not that I don't appreciate the ease of 'not having to "open the dropdown-menu, going to the right tab and checking the box" (which the browser takes its own sweet time in responding-to) every time,' but also don't want to waste any tools I could be using!
(Or would 'using the keyboard-shortcut' actually be a LONGER wait than 'clicking the browser-button'?)
- by Firefox user 6390041, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5This little add-on does exactly what I want it to, I code HTML emails and most clients disable images by default, so when I'm previewing an email I'm working on in Firefox this makes turning off images a snap to see what the users will first see when they receive one of my emails and let me code changes accordingly.
- by caixamagica, 9 years agoRated 5 out of 5What are you people talking about? It works for me on Firefox 11. Saves me time, so I don't have to go to tools - options - content - disable images... Having this button is much more practical, thank you.
- by Insevin, 9 years agoRated 5 out of 5I have a 2GB limit for my cell phone's wi-fi hotspot and this image blocker is great for keeping the data usage lower so I have more time to stay online! Its great!
- by ppd, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 51. Regular expressions in place of exact site address: this will help allow/block content delivered from cdn's where the sub-domains are used. It may lead to unexpected behavior if user types a bad regex, but you can have this as an advanced settings defaulting to exact website url. This may to some extent solve #alalal011's problems.
2. As #jaminga suggested, having some kind of shortcut to enable disable images for the current tab. This would be excellent.
3. The button on the address bar either disables/enables images for all websites. You could have a small drop-down next to it with options to specify whether it should be all websites or just current website.
- by alalal011, 9 years agoRated 1 out of 5Very poor functionality. It can't show images selectively. Just needless fo me an all the people who want to see only needed pics and save the traffic (mobile internet users for example).
I wonder why it has so high rating.
- by Majr, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5There's just one thing this is missing... the ability to move the button. It's bad enough that you can't move it, but absolutely terrible that you can't take it out either. I will only need the button when my internet is capped, so it'll be wasted space all other times.
- by jaminja, 9 years agoRated 5 out of 5Hemant good work I have to convince friends to use this as it saves a lot of time - maybe (suggestion only!) some code to disable per-site on a "sticky" basis - for example I set images off for a site (yes can be done in site prefs :) ) but then imageblock will remember. I guess if I was not so busy and lazy with other projects that's easy enough -- and a shortcut key in the chrome maybe? For sure it's *great* and even on a 31mbps sdsl it's a godsend when there is congestion thank you from myself and my friends ...
- by Christopher Glance, 10 years agoRated 5 out of 5What a useful thing! I've looked for this addon for a long time. My Internet connection is very slow so toggling images on/off is very necessary for me.
