In Firefox, I'm looking for a way to:

  1. fade, or add a certain amount of transparency to all images, with the possibility to temporary disable this when I hover the image with the mouse pointer
  2. forget images according to a hash of their content and display a nice (transparent?) placeholder instead.

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

you may consider using adblock but it doesn't fit exactly to your needs –  JMax Mar 30 '12 at 8:57
I was going to recommend adblock as well, but it doesn't do at all what you're looking to do. –  Raystafarian Mar 30 '12 at 11:38

Are you able to use jQuery at all. If so you can do a global select

        $(this).fadeTo(100, 0.2).mouseenter(function() { $(this).fadeTo(100, 1) }).mouseleave(function() { $(this).fadeTo(100, 0.2) });

Have a look at this working example http://jsfiddle.net/WFvZn/

Then I guess applying this script, with the good selector to every page in Firefox, is a job for Greasemonkey ? –  Antoine Lecaille Mar 30 '12 at 11:00
There is a zero width space in your code: Octal Escape Sequence \342\200\213, see graphemica.com/200B. Do you know where it's coming from ? –  Antoine Lecaille Mar 30 '12 at 15:39
