    For the new versions of Firefox, the option to turn off images by going to Options has been removed. Now, you must do the following steps:
    1. Open a new tab and type in about:config as the URL
    2. Search for preferences.default.image
    3. Right-click on the Value which should be 1 beforehand. Click modify and type 2 and enter. Having 1 in the box means that images will be shown, and having 2 in the box means that images will be blocked.
