How can I stop images from loading?

I'm on a limited data plan and I need to use as little bandwidth as possible. I couldn't find the option to stop automatically loading images. Is there a way to do this? Using Firefox 59.0.2.

Chosen solution

Hi janaristic,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:config (press Enter) (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

permissions.default.image

And change its value to 2

Then close and restart Firefox, in order for the change to take effect.
