Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011011
BuildID:    20011114

The Preferences window needs more options to manage images to be blocked.

You should be able to add new as well as edit blocked images.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Edit - Preferences
2.  Select Privacy & Security and then Images
3.  Click View Image Permissions


Actual Results:  Only has Remove buttons

Expected Results:  Needs add and edit buttons

The reasoning for this is say I only want to block images in a certain section
of a site or even just block a single image, then I can just add this to the
list in the preferences or edit a current on.

See also bug 109810, "Way to manually add to Passwords never saved list in 
passwordmanager".

-> XP Apps, since several other image manager bugs are in that component.

perhaps i somehow missed it...? ;)

Creating an "image manager" component in bugzilla is bug 107310.

Possible way to edit the current Image Manager (based on bug 109810 mentioned 
above).

+-------------------------------------------------------+
|Image Manager                                        |X|
+-------------------------------------------------------+
|_[Image Sites]_________________________________________|
| Internet websites from which images are not fetched.  |

| |www.mozilla.org/gif/    | loads image(s)           | |
| |www.mozilla.org/cool.gif| loads image(s)           | |
| |:                                                  | |

+-------------------------------------------------------+

Basically the idea behind all of this is that it would block all images from 
www.mozilla.org except for images in the /gif/ folder and subdirectories or the 
specific cool.gif.

By allowing so called EXCEPTIONS a user can customize and chose what they need 
to block like in order to block certain ads but allow regular site images 
through.

SUGGESTED RULES:
1.  Sites should be listed by domain (and alphabetically second)  IE, 
images.mozilla.org should be right before www.mozilla.org and not after 
www.google.com.  This way a user can keep easy track of exceptions to the rule 
for example they have images blocked on part of the site and allowed on other 
parts.

requests for domain/hostname entry should go to bug 89904.
This bug is for more specific types of filtering.

I think this bug can be closed down as RESOLVED -> WONTFIX

Looking back, the kind of features I was looking for are now served by adblock's fine-grained control.
It might be nice if Firefox built in such fine-grained control, but that's really a big topic that should be dealt with separate from my rather simplistic suggestion I offered here.  I would like to close this report for no longer being relevant, but just wanted to look for any feedback before I did. :)

See Comment 14

If you really would like it reopened, feel free to do so.  However, personally, I think if Firefox really wanted to add something like this, it should be something more powerful like adblock's ability to handle both whitelists, blacklists, page elements, and regular expressions.
