Click To Play For Animated Gifs, Please...

  • Animated gifs just kills performance a lot... So a click to play feature would be very welcome..

    Tried several extensions but none of them works as expected.

    Ideally it should prevent the gif from download unless I click it to play..

    Thx..

  • It would be nice if we had a way to stop any automatic media play.

    And web pages authors could understand that not everyone likes media to start playing automatically.

  • Facebook devs do.

    Yep... That's why I hate instagram on the phone...

    Facebook devs do.

    No, they don't... Just look at instagram app...

  • Gifs stopper

    I've tested the extension and it works.

    I tried that extension before, but it sucks because it still downloads the GIFs in the background.... What it's really doing is just hiding from the page...

    We need a true blocker....

  • :doh:
    So it's not what you looking for, sorry.

  • Facebook embeds don't autoplay when ON a page like wall etc.
    On dedicated media pages it might depend. Well, streams did autoplay last time I occurred there.

  • Facebook embeds did autoplay, unless you turned that setting off. Maybe they are changed behavior; I have no fb account to check.

    I would like option to disable gif animation too. For me, first frame could be displayed - no big problem.

    And I would like some option to disable any media content autoplay, be it plugins (possible currently) ot HTML5 content (can't blocked).
