To set your animation preferences on a long term basis, use the Edit->Preferences->Privacy&Security->Images options (Never, Once, As many times as the image specifies). If you have an image that is already animating, try using the 'Escape' key or go to the View->Stop menu item. If you are still having problems, you might want to let us know the URL so that someone else can see what the problem may be. It would also be nice to know what platform you are on (and software version if not 0.9.8).
