How to unblock previously blocked images

Posted

Hi,

I blocked loading (or displaying?) of images on a website in order to get rid of some ads by click on 'Image info' (I've a german browser version where it is called 'Grafik-Info anzeigen', I don't know how it exactly is named in english version) and then on 'block images from...'. Unfortunately this removed many useful images as well, and I'd like to revert the setting. However I don't find any place, where I could do so. Removing the website under 'about:permissions' didn't actually change anything, so the 'good' images still don't appear.

Can somebody help me on that?

Best regards and thanks, Klaus

Hi, please see the Permissions tab in this article - Firefox Page Info window.

It is also possible that if you are using an ad blocker, you have blocked an image with that, in which case you will need to look at the ad blocker's preferences - Add-ons Manager (Ctrl+Shift+A > Extensions).

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

Hi, thanks for your answer!

I was already inspecting these preferences, but indeed overlooked, that I need to choose in the Media tab one of the blocked media to actually unblock media coming from a different web site.
