Just wanted to post a note that I've added the AdBlock extension by Henrik Aasted Sørensen. I think it's a great extension, since it allows you to specify exactly what images you don't want Phoenix to display.

(If only it could keep Phoenix from downloading them as well!)

Just a note that this can be accomplished with userContent as well.

But that method also still loads the images as the extension does, right?

Yes. But it is more flexible, allowing a user to specify sizes and other attributes. And you don't have to reinstall or lose anything when you make a new profile.

From a user's perspective, you would lose it when creating a new profile. I'm sure you mean the user should know how to copy userContent.css from the old profile.

AdBlock probably stores its settings in prefs.js, so they could be carried forward via user.js. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a good idea, especially for those who wouldn't have a clue what to do with userContent.css.
