Last updated on June 5th, 2023 at 03:30 pm

Have you ever been trying to read a Web page, but it was difficult to do so because there were a lot of pictures?

This is a common complaint from people that read Web pages that are very image-heavy, as it can make it difficult to actually read the text that is located on the page. Fortunately the Firefox browser on your iPhone has an option that lets you hide all of the image files found on pages that you visit. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and use that setting so you can try out an image-free browsing experience and see if it’s something you like.

How to Stop Showing Pictures on Web Pages in the Firefox iPhone App

The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 12. I am using version 13.2 of the Firefox app, which was the most current version available when this article was written.

This won’t affect the behavior of any other browsers on your iPhone, such as Chrome or Safari.

Images will remain hidden as you browse to other pages. You can simply turn that option back off when you wish to resume browsing without pictures. Note that many sites use images in the layout of their site, so you may encounter sites that are difficult to read when images are hidden.

Now that you know how to hide images in Firefox on an iPhone, you can make your Web pages load much more quickly when you have a bad Internet connection.

You may notice that there is another option on the menu called Night Mode. Find out more about Firefox’ night mode if it’s something that you might be interested in using.
