Advogato: mozilla.org WONTFIX Mozilla: will you?

AOL management has ordered the Mozilla team to remove a
configuration option that can be used to block ads.

“Wouldn’t it be neato if you could configure your web browser to
show only images originating from the same site as the page you
were viewing? You’d wipe out most of those annoying counters and
banner ads without even a lick of work.”

“The Mozilla developers did it, and it worked great. Until now.
The feature “went the way of management decree.” Ben Woodard
recently posted to linux-elitists with a link to the relevant
bugzilla entry.”
