How to globally disable favicon animation? I don't want to install addons.
This is a known concern:
And has not been added as a feature in the 16 years since it was first asked.
You can use extensions and code to remove these:
However, as you specific ask for extension-free options, the answer is "No, you cannot stop animated favicons."
For those looking for Greasemonkey solution:
// ==UserScript== // @name garant.ru // @namespace garant // @description удаление favicon // @include garant.ru/* // @include www.garant.ru/* // @version 1 // @grant none // ==/UserScript== a=$('link[href="/images/favicon.gif?1"]') a.attr('href',"/images/favicon-16x16.png")
Main idea is to change animated favicon source from animated file to non-animated file.
