At some point between May 11 and May 16 (the dates I downloaded from latest-trunk), the "ask me before downloading an image" preference disappeared. Not only is the checkbox gone, but my pre-existing preference ("hell yes ask me") is not being honored. I am once again exposed to obnoxious banners and tracking bugs. I will revert to the May 11 build, and NOT install any further builds, until I hear that this feature is restored. It is absolutely essential.
See bug 110112 for details.

Yes.. this was deliberatly disabled because it was too bugged for now, causing several topcrash bugs. The checkin read "Bug 110112. Disable `ask me before loading images' until the feature can be implemented in a way that doesn't re-enter layout" Other crashes in bug 110269, bug 133633, bug 57188 (amongst others) Resolving as invalid.

For which bug should we vote if we desparately want this pref to be reinstated ASAP?
Agreed. Crashing once in a while is a price worth paying to keep the "ask image" preference.
