Ability to pause animated profile pictures

Someone reblogged an item into my feed from a user that has an extremely distracting hyper-fast spinning animated profile picture, and there's no way to get it to stop as long as I'm viewing the page. It would be nice to have a global checkbox to convert all animated profile pictures into static pictures.

which user's profile pic was this, if you remember?  there already is this setting ("pause animated GIFs in avatars and header images?" on the settings page), and it should default to on -- however, there's currently a limitation where it only works on animated GIFs rather than all animated image types.

well, this is embarrassing. that setting was off. now that it's on, the animation is paused.
