Accept
Allow all images from the selected site(s)
Domain
???
Open Tab
This button is always disabled for the image manager and does not do anything.
Ask Me
This button is always disabled for the image manager and does not do anything.

If you type a domain name into the text box below the buttons this button becomes active. It adds a new entry to the image manager that you can then control with the Block and Accept buttons.
Delete

Settings Window

Image Manager Settings Window

Enable Multizilla's Content Blocker
This button can be used to globally disable the Content Blocker. This disables the effects for blocking images, plugins, scripts, frames and documents.
Content Blocker Acceptance Policy
This controls the content blocker for images. If the Disable content blocker for Images box is unticked, then the content blocker will be enabled and the rest of the options on the settings panel become available.
Block Images (use of white list is optional)
In this case, all images are blocked apart from those specificially allowed either by having a regular expression in the whitelist (see below) or having an entry in the main image manager panel (see above).
Accept Images (use of black list is optional)
In this case, all images are allowed apart from those specificially blocked either by having a regular expression in the blacklist (see below) or having an entry in the main image manager panel (see above).
Accept Images from the originating site only (use of black list is optional)
In this case only images from the same server that a webpage is stored on will be shown. Other images can be blocked by having a regular expression in the blacklist (see below) or having an entry in the main image manager panel (see above).
Ask me before Accepting Images (use of permissions is optional)
In this case, each time a webpage request an image, you are asked if you wish to accept it or not. Your decision can be stored so that it will not be asked for pages in that domain again. You can always show or block pages based on having a regular expression in the blacklist (see below) or having an entry in the main image manager panel (see above).
Blacklist/whitelist

Depending on your setting for the acceptance policy (above) this is either a blacklist of images, or a whitelist. Each entry in the list is comma-separated and behaves as a Regular expression. So this can be used to block or allow a large group of sites and finer control on a per-site basis can be provided by the main window.

There are three buttons available here. These are described below:

Sort / Validate Filters
Sorts the filters that you add to alphabetical order and ensures that they are syntatically correct.
Export Filters...
Allows you to export your filters as an RDF file to another computer or for other purposes.
Import Filters...
Allows you to import filters that you had exported using the Export Filters... option.
More Settings
Image Manager 'More Settings' Window
This panel brings together various image settings from the SeaMonkey preferences panels.
Image Acceptance Policy
If the Disable all images from websites button is checked, then all images from websites will not be shown. If it is unchecked, the further control of image acceptance is possible using the radio buttons.
Accep Images
Load all images specified by a webpage, wherever it comes from.
Acept Images from the originating server only
Load only those images that reside on the same server as the webpage requesting them. Note: this can have unintended side effects as some large websites load their images from other servers to preserve bandwidth.
Favicon Settings
The two drop-down boxes allow you to control where favicons are shown.
The checkbox Allow Favicons and Link Icons from filtered websites allows favicons to be loaded from sites that otherwise aren't allowed to load images.
Image Acceptance Policy for Mail & Newsgroups
This checkbox allows you to control whether images should be loaded in email newsgroup messages.
Image Animation
Animated images (animated GIFs) can play their animation in loops. This drop-down box allows you to control how animation should be played. It can be allowed to play as many times as the image speficies, only once or not at all. Since many web adverts use animated images, setting this to Loop only once or Never Loop can made adverts much less intrusive while still allowing them to be shown, if you wish to support the site.
Manage Image Permissions
This button takes you back to the Image Manager Settings page, the same as pressing the Back button.
