flashing lights on screen

Is there any way I can disable the flashing light on 'judderslady's icon? I find it very distracting .

This nothing personal. Just a matter of making the board comfortable .

Smittims, unfortunately I don't think there's any way that you can stop seeing other people's avatars. Sorry  
Ketty

I'm using Mozilla Firefox as my web browser.  You can opt, under the Tools and Options menu to NOT show images.  The only problem is, it prevents the emoticons too - although, that may not be a problem?

Unfortunately I don't believe you can turn it off.

Although if you do discover a solution - please share.

You can, Lexi.  See my previous post.

Yes, but I use safari - so it wouldn't work.

Nice idea though.
Ketty

Ah, right. I understand.

What if you 'right click' on the offending picture, does it give you a drop down menu and option to block the image?
Lexilogio

No - it doesn't work.

Thanks anyway.
smittims

Thanks , I may try the Firefox solution as long as it doesn't affect my other 'favorite' web-sites.  

I have asked judderslady on a thread if she can control it, merely to help  me to read her posts, as otherwise it may become too distracting.

I'd be the first to say: use Firefox anyway, it's a smashing browser. I've never used anything else for several years.

On another forum, some of the posters were also having problems with the moving and flashing avatars.  After a discussion, it was agreed that we'd have a 'gentleman's agreement' to not use such things.  It's no big deal and if it makes forum life more comfortable . . .

The thread wasn't complaining about you personally, Lynne, but asking if there was a way to disable aspects of an avatar without having to ask someone to change an avatar they clearly like, and which doesn't appear to bother others.

If you have the "Adblock" add on you can right click the avatar and at the bottom of the list is an adblock image option.

Follow the simple instructions, block that particular image (usually the first option - the one with the .gif at the end), tick the box that says block end of address at the bottom and you can become your own God, as it only blocks that image on this site!!

Smittims if you download Firefox, it will import any of your favourites from other web browsers.

I think it's sad that Smittims and Susan's discomfort with the flashing avatars has been taken personally.  I know for Susan, she has problems with her eyesight and all of us should be more understanding about such things.  

Why though, am I not surprised that a polite general enquiry has caused controversy!
