Ability to block not only images from 1 site, but all the file transfer and
cookies from it.

I think that probably bug 64066 can take care about the file transfer, and for
the cookies: did you test the cookie manager?

I'm not sure what you mean by "file transfer." Do you mean frames/iframes? Why
do you want to block those? We already have a way to block cookies by site - go
to Tasks - Privacy and Security - Cookie Manager.

I meant a menu item that blocks all the transfer at
once: cookies, images, web-pages, flash-movies and all other documents
and media. This is useful when one page redirects to another, loading
in a separate winwod or frame, or in the same window. So, if you can
block all advertisement from a site, but don't want to block all
redirections or JavaScript, this feature may be ideal.

I meant not only to blocking iframes, but a menu item that blocks all the

in a separate winwod or frame, or in the same window. So, if you can block all
advertisement from a site, but don't want to block all redirections or
JavaScript, this feature may be ideal. In this case new window with blocked site
will not open (this will disable not all the popups, but only unwanted).

I don't understand the purpose of this. Preventing a page from loading any
embedded content renders it pretty much useless on today's Web. If all you want
to do is block pop-up ads, we already have a mechanism for that. See bug 75371.
If you don't want to see any images or embeds, why not use Lynx?

I'm marking this wontfix.
