Play Image Animation setting not working properly on all sites
Toggling this setting to 'Never' should stop gif images from playing, right?
Doesn't seem to work well everywhere. E.g on Tumblr, it seems on any main tumblr page, or any ....tumblr.com/archive page gifs still play on loop. However, if clicking on an image, i.e opening a single post, the gif does not play, like expected. (See http://catsof.tumblr.com just as an example.)
Common problem, or related specifically to tumblr? It would be nice to have Play Image Animation -> Never work on tumblr without having to resort to an extension, seeing as it is a native V setting. Known bug?
The mentioned image setting does not stop a running animation.
It disables start (Play) of such animation.
@gwen-dragon I'm aware of that. How does that explain the discrepancy of handling animations on a page like http://catsof.tumblr.com/archive and a page like http://catsof.tumblr.com/post/157700968669/dextercolt-me-perusing-facebook ? With said setting at 'Never' shouldn't it disable start of animation in both instances?
Oh, looks like a bug, a CSS inserted background-image animation is not disabled.
I will have a look if this is a known issue. Wait…
Reported as new bug: VB-35643 "GIF animation not disabled if a CSS background-image"
@gwen-dragon Thank you.
I hope it will be fixed as flicker is sometimes dangerous.
Accessability for people with special needs or epileptic seizure is important. I take care about Vivaldi used by people with special needs.
@gwen-dragon Yeah, I agree with you.
Even though I don't have such issues myself, I find any blinking or flickering extremely annoying. When there are more things flickering at once like e.g. on some tumblr pages it makes viewing really bothersome. Worse of course for those who might be put in real harm.
