hi,

there is a beautiful and userful feature in contextual menu to block image from a sever (to block add, porn adv, unecessary picture or big picture from low bandwith).

but this feature doesn't appear in the contextual menu when you right-mouse-clic on the background image !
now many websites use the background image to display adverti, porn or abused picture from an external server.

it would be very nice to have the "block images from ..." feature here to block background image from an advert server !

have a good day !

Right click > View Page Info > Media tab > find the Background image you want to block > check Block images from ______.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

If it is just one background image from that host, you could find it in Page Info and add that item to Adblock Plus element hiding helper and block it that way. You could still see the other images that way.

Or right click the image, choose "View Background Image". When the image opens, right click it again and choose "Block Images from <domain>".
