Hi, I'm wondering since at least a week ago the block images checkbox for specific site in page info setting not exits anymore, any thoughts about this ? I'm currently using firefox 72.0.1 in ubuntu 19.10 & already using the up to date version firefox in this distro though.

Many thanks for your help & really appreciate it.

Support for blocking images from individual domains has been removed from Firefox, because of low usage and poor user experience. For now you can revert this change by modifying this pref on the about:config

  • extensions.contentblocker.enabled = true

This was removed in Firefox 72, it seems: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/72.0/releasenotes/

It is certainly not back in v 73.

For how long can we re-enable it? When is it going to be removed completely and what should I do after it happens? It is a VERY important accessibility feature. Thank you!

You can search the Add-ons website for an extension to block images.

Now I cannot re-enable the blocking images feature with this method (Firefox 74.0, 64-bit) any more. I've tried many extensions, and at last this did the same, as the "extensions.contentblocker.enabled = true" method: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/image-blocker-plus/
