Testing with Firefox: Hide Images

Disabling browser images support forces the browser to display text equivalents, such as alt attribute, instead of images, thus enabling the editor to experience the web resource from the position of those who can not have images displayed. In case of Firefox, Firefox Accessibility Extension provides an option of viewing a web page without images.
