Website has a flashing animation in tab I want to stop!

There's a website i frequent (6x6world.com) that "forces" the little graphic in the tab to flash "6 - X - 6" repeatedly. It's annoying enough to have it pulsing away with one tab open, but if I get several tabs open it's downright maddening.

Is there any way to shut this off or do I have to chose between suffering this madness or not reading the website content?

I've looked through about:config at the image animation options, but nothing seems to stop this stupid graphic/flashing. The website owner simply won't respond to inquiries about the option to turn it off.

Any help?

Disregard my last, got ublock to work. I had to get into the console and define a custom filter, but it worked!
