hello all:

i use dial-up isp and Firefox is my preferred browser. but, i have a problem with the time needed to load pages on the web that are heavy on images.

i believe Firefox has a feature called Image Loading that allows one to view pages with all images blocked. i believe that would help me with my sometime lack of patience. recently it took close to 3 hours to download a single 11 minute long video. i am not joking.

my problem: i don't know how to use the Image Loading feature. can anyone out there instruct me on how to put this feature into use. i sure would appreciate it. thanks!

I'm assuming this is v3.0.6 the latest Firefox?

Go to Tools-Options and click Content (third icon from left) and un-check the box marked "Load Images Automatically" - and see if that's the one.
