How can I block images in my browser?

You want it really???? Tired of getting annoyed with unwanted images on your browser?? Wanna browse safely with our interruption of photos and pictures?? The answer is probably YES…..

Good news is… it’s possible!

How?

Images, Flashes, and Ads

Usually, a web user encounters photos/images in three forms: images, flash, and ads.

If you successfully tackle these 3, you’re gonna make your way safe. There are Add-ons/extensions available for all these jobs but different add-ons
/extensions for your android and desktop versions. We will be discussing them likewise.

Sharing with you a concern regarding the net browsers as three famous browsers are being used commonly across the globe; Internet Explorer, Google Chrome & Mozilla Firefox.

There is an option for internet explorer to lock images but that is incapable to do the job effectively, i.e. in the context of it blocks the images it sometimes blocks the icons as well, which obviously hurdles your job.

Google Chrome does have an option but it blocks ineffectively, we have observed some penetrations through it.

Mozilla Firefox is what we recommend personally, on behalf of its ability to carry the most effective extensions with regards to the subject.

Here, we shall be moving with Mozilla Firefox.

How to block images?

Click the following link to download ‘image blocker’ for your windows.

Having done this, you will be able to see a small ‘dim photo’ icon on the right side of your browser’.

Follow the red arrow

This icon must be clicked before you start browsing. Having clicked a ‘circular block’ sign shall appear on it…That’s it…this means you are safe to browse now.

The second picture (Caption: Icon clicked) shows that the user has clicked the icon before logging on to the website.

If in case, for some reasons, you are in need of pictures for your use, you may simply deselect that icon and refresh your website.

In case you forget to click the icon, pictures will surely appear, and now, by just clicking the icon will not disappear……you have to close your browser and restart it, then click this icon before you log on to any website.!!!

As shown in the last screenshot, the taskbar with “about:” is the place where you shall add the websites you want to spare and then click “+” sign on the right. You can add multiples sites…These websites shall continue to display flash.

If you want to keep flash blocker ON for all, keep this portion empty, like shown here, and you are not gonna see flash objects in any website.
