4.4 Stars out of 5
- by Alexis Wilke, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5Exactly what I was looking for. I still don't understand why they (firefox dev.) completely removed the old Esc functionality instead of making it available with another key... This one is even better since it stops "everything" like the Stop button but for ongoing connections, GIF, video, audio...
- by Foxi Bob, 4 months agoRated 5 out of 5A great must have addon. I always miss Shift+Esc on foreign computers. It feels so natural. Something is moving, blinking, etc.: Shift+Esc > SuperStop!
For CSS3 related issues, try SuperStop in combination with this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/no-transition/ and you become a nice "static" website.
- by Brainetree, 7 months agoRated 5 out of 5This add-on actually works, no other animation stopper works for me in Quantum except this Sure Stop. I noticed that Chrome has Stop Animations 1.15 which just uses the ESC key and works perfect Wish Sure-Stop could be configured to use just the ESC key.

- by tomhock, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It doesn't work on v59 - period. I hate motion on pages I'm trying to read, and I've tried repeatedly to find a way to stop these Giphy animations that appear all over the place. This extension has no effect on them whatsoever.
I really blame Mozilla for this. If Chrome can provide a built-in switch, so can you. Also, stop "improving" your products so that the most useful elements STOP WORKING.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoI guess Giphy uses GIFVs, i.e. videos. I filed https://github.com/gavinsharp/SuperStop/issues/10 for adding that functionality to the addon, though I don't think I'll have time to fix it any time soon.
Setting media.autoplay.enabled to false in about:config might be an option for you.
Edit: I updated the addon -- Shift+Escape should now pause videos as well.
- by Jebsen Nightingscale, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Version 0.2 is working great on Firefox 52 ESR even though it's marked as requiring Firefox 55 and newer. Stopping JS timer is nice addition to the old version. It would be better if it was marked compatible with 52 so it can be used on current ESR without workarounds.
- by Firefox user 13820652, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5So happy to have found this rewrite after ToggleGifs (or whatever the name was *bad memory*) wouldn't work with new FF. I'm rating 4 stars only because there doesn't appear to be a way to turn animations back on after you Shift+Esc to turn them off other than reloading the entire page. If that feature could be added (maybe Ctrl+Shift+Esc to reverse), this would be full-on 5 stars for me. Thank you!
