Select it with your mouse pointer, right click and in your context menu which should open you left-click "remove image". This tool should be standard, and it should also work for flash plugins. People might say, I can deinstall my flash plugin if I don't use it, but that is not the point. As one wants to see some images, and others he don't, same is it with flash animations. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
bug 94035 and bug 173111 mostly cover that. A dup of bug 94035 was bug 198222: Ability to block flash like we do for images". Bug 173111 should be expanded accordingly, to also cover flash and possibly other media.
Shouldnt be standard IMHO, since that would go against the firebird 'bloat' rules. BTW, checkout the development builds of Adblock, they can block images and flash :)
Randomly dupping to one of the bugs that covers ideas from this.... I agree with Samir; there should be hooks in the core to do this and the functionality should be in an extension. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 94035 ***
