Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-05-11 15:47:34 EDT
It would be very nice if Mozilla could be made not to animate images -
animated gifs can be very distracting, and just showing the first frame
would be a very welcome option - MSIE on Mac(not Win) and Opera already
have this functionality, AFAIK
Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2001-05-15 18:07:48 EDT
This is already documented in the release notes for mozilla.  However, I don't
know if it's in 0.7 or not.  It's in more recent releases as a hidden pref.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-05-15 18:35:58 EDT
Where? And can it be made not hidden?
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2001-05-16 02:29:46 EDT
See http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17686 ,
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19258 and

To summarize, the way you control animation is by putting 
user_pref("image.animation_mode", "once");
user_pref("image.animation_mode", "none");
into your prefs file, but in some versions of Mozilla this would not work.
