How to turn off PNG Images?

Chosen solution

PNG is a format for (compressed) images just like the JPG format. There is no way to disable this format.

If you have a problem with images on some web pages then you may need to block images from some domains.

You can look at the Adblock Plus extension to block specific content.

You need to subscribe to a Filter list (e.g. the EasyList).
