From Bugzilla Helper:

BuildID:    2002060903

Hi there -

Downloaded the latest nightly build (2002060903), and I've noticed that the
preferences have been moved around a bit... unfortunately, the option to turn on
server-specific image blocking is gone in this build. Please bring it back!

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Look at the preferences under Privacy & Security (OS X version)
2.
3.
What do you mean ?

I see the Image permissions box ..

Do you mean "ask before downloading a image" pref ?

That's right - there used to be a check box for that, where "do not load images
in mail and news" is now... which, if checked, would bring up a sheet every time
images were attempting to load from a new server.

This very useful feature was removed from more than just Max OS X - this feature
alone is stopping me from upgrading to a newer version on the PC.
What Do you missing :
a) I can block images from special servers 
b) I can block images in Mailnews

Indeed, I can still block images from any server - if I'm willing to look at the
page info and manually add any server's from which I don't want images.  The
previous version allowed me to enable a dialog that asked if I wanted to load an
image from a server.  While this is a bit of a pain at times, I enabled it to
help minimize the loading of web bugs and pretty much anything that came from
"ads.domainname.com", etc..  It could be disabled if a user did not want a
dialog for every image.

I feel that it is a very useful tool.  For users who do not want to use the
feature I agree that it should default to "off" - don't ask permission to load
an image.  This was the out of the box setting when it existed.
this feature is gone because it caused many crashes.
