The block images feature needs futher granularity. A user should have the
ability to block images from a subdirectory or even a specific image, rather a
whole server.

Example -- certain websites will house their banner advertisements in a
subdirectory off their domain. So if you routinely visit www.foo.com, and the
ads are stored in www.foo.com/images/ads, if you block images from foo.com, you
won't get many of the images that you need/want. If Mozilla gave a more granular
ability to block images, the feature would be more useful.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This is an enhancement request
.
Assignee: other → mstoltz
Component: Layout → Image Blocking
This is doable as an extension if someone wants to -- nsIContentPolicy supports
the needed granularity.

Imo, all of image blocking should be an extension in any case...
