2. One of Firefox's huge flaws for me is that you can't stop
animated gifs with the Stop button, like you can with IE. As soon as the page is loaded the stop button is disabled, which makes no sense to me.

4. I've never noticed that.
I've never bothered to stop animated gifs. Why do you do it? (serious question)

6. Some of them drive me nuts
especially the bigger banner ads. Especially the red and white flashing WINNER!!!!! you sometimes find on pages which makes reading the actual content very difficult.
