How do I stop automatic download of videos?
Websites often have videos and gifs on their pages, many will auto-download and auto-play. After doing some Searches, I was able to stop auto-play by changing some settings in Firefox. The problem is these videos and gifs are still auto-downloading. I'm using current version of Firefox, checked Plugin settings and checked Extensions.

It seems to work great, thanks for your help, Mkll ! :)
Any chance there's a method to stop Gifs? I've been to pages that literally has dozens of Gifs trying to load and play at the same time. Here's a recent example on a site doing reviews for tv series.
I can start another thread for Gifs, if necessary.
