Description

I accidently chose the option "block images from this server" and I can't get
the images back. I know there must be some way to get them back and this is not
the place to request help, it's just that I weren't able to get them back by
myself and I'm sure that more people are having the same problem. so I just
think there should be an easier way to cancel the blocking so people like me
won't get stuck becouse of that.
Tasks > Privacy and Security > Image manager.

Also, the same thing in the Privacy and Security preferences.

Over to UI design, ccing morse.

Boris is correct that

  Tasks > Privacy and Security > Image manager > unblock-images

will give you an easy-to-use menu item for unblocking images.  It's right next 
to the "block images" menu item that you originally clicked on by accident.

Also you could also go to

  tasks > privacy > image-manager > view-sites

and get a list of all sites that are currently blocked.  Then you can remove any 
or all entries from that list.

My recommendation, therefore, is to mark this report as invalid or wont-fix 
because we already have simple procedures for doing this.
morse, it's not quite so simple.  Block images is in the _context_menu_, where
it is very easy to find or click by accident.

Unblock is in the 4th! level of a menu.  That's not exactly a simple procedure...

And unblock images is also in the context menu, right where block images used to 
be when the image was not blocked.
