How do I turn off image loading in Firefox for Android?

hello mjray, try this: enter about:config into the address bar, search for the preference named permissions.default.image, edit it and change its value to 2. (1 allows all images to load, 2 blocks all images, 3 allows only images from the same site to load and blocks third-party-images).
Thank you, that works. I found an add-on which adds Bilder Laden / Bilder Deaktiviert to the menu, which seems to change the same option. It would be useful to have this and scripts on/off easily accessible, to help cut data quota use/cost.
For every browser, there exist Extension AdBlock (also, there exists Adblock Plus) : For Firefox - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/
After instalation, on the right upper corner (along with address bar) there appears an icon. right click on that >Settings> Edit filter> and add these lines
*.gif *.png *.jpg *.bmp *.swf
and click Save. after this, the images+flash files wont be loaded on sites, but if you want to temporarily enable for specific site, then while you are on that site(page), click the icon and clcik *Dont run on this page* (or pause). then you can again re-enable.
Anyway, there exist other several extensions to disable image load :
- for Firefox** : 1) Image Block; 2) ImgLikeOpera (for image blocking) + FlashBlock (for flash blocking)
