Sometimes, they can get annoying. A setting to avoid them from animating, or to allow them just once, would be very helpful. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
the pref exists, we don't have UI for this.
Note that pressing escape works (see bug 213377). *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 227886 ***
"the pref exists, we don't have UI for this."., "Note that pressing escape works (see bug 213377)." If I understood well, Firefox is supposed to be easy to use and to allow the user to browse as he wants, contrarly to IE. Although the preference exists, about:config is nothing but a cryptic place for users. Also, the users have no way to know that pressing Escape will stop the animations, and if eventually they discover it, it won't work for other sites, so they would have to be repeating operation everytime.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
