Preventing unwanted animations from playing
Certain URLs like https://smile.amazon.com/s?k=face+shield often include an advertising animation that can't be avoided or stopped. Or at least I haven't found a way. If there is, I and a bunch of people I mentioned this to would like to know how. Am using FFox 79.0 64-bit on Windows 10.

Type or paste in the address bar about:config (press Enter) and accept the risk.
Type or paste in the search bar image.animation_mode and set its value to none.
Then close and restart Firefox.
Does that make a difference ?
If this is about advertisements then maybe look at a content blocking extension like uBlock Origin.
Are you using Enhanced Tracking Protection as that blocks a lot of third-party content ?
I modified about: config as suggested; no change. Even after restarting FF and then rebooting Windows. And I see I am using Enhanced Tracking Protection: Always On.
But what does work is: with NoScript to block the site ssl-images-amazon.com from running scripts. Not sure what side effects that may have but I'll stick with that for the moment.
