Its useful for a tech site that may have shady ads, and how would you know if it does or not when you're just searching for an answer to a technical problem?
There are add-ons which make this easy, but if you prefer the hard way...
What values did you try for permissions.default.image ? As described in this article, 2 should work: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Permissions.default.image
Note that previously cached images may continue to display after making that change.
I don't know how you plan to determine that some of the images are weird or shady when you can't see them...
Anyway, to add an exception for a site you trust, you can use the Page Info dialog, Permissions panel. Either:
- click the globe or padlock in the address bar > More Information
- right-click the page > View Page Info
Click Permissions at the top, then scroll down to "Load Images", uncheck the "Use default" box and click Allow.
