From the Play Image Animation section, you can disable the animation, play it once or make it loop (default choice). This is useful when you want to browse through GIF-heavy websites but don’t want to auto-play them all at once as that could slow down the page.

For images, choose from the Load Images section. The default option is set to Always which can be changed to Never or Cached. These settings are valid for only the new tabs and not for those which are accessed from different links though.

All done.
