I'd swear that I used to be able to click on an animation/video/gif to stop at looping, but I cannot stop this one by doing that:

It must've been one of those custom settings I had before I got the new computer and ran a clean install of firefox.

I have set media seamless looping to off in about:config, but I can't see what other preferences would relate to this.

Mac OS 12.0 Monterey, FF 94.0 beta

Chosen solution

You can possibly set this pref to 'once' (default='normal') to show the animation only one time.

  • about:config => image.animation_mode = once (normal, once, none)

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

You can look for an extension on the Add-ons website.

This looks like a gif image. Not a clip.

I agree that it's a gif....but there is a way to disable them entirely OR at least to limit them to one round of movement? That's what I think I had set before.

Thank you so much! That was exactly what I needed.
