This happens on any page with animated gifs (and I mean every single one). I'm using 0.9.8 right now and it's having the problem, yet this problem has existed since Mozilla first started displaying animated gifs. <> is a great example of a site with animated gifs. I hit escape and they don't stop. The stop button on the screen is greyed out. Trying to click on it anyway does nothing. The View->Stop menu item is greyed out. Same thing for right clicking on an animating gif and slecting stop from the popup menu. It's greyed out.

I\\\\\\\'m using 0.9.8 - build 2002020406 on Windows 2000. I am using the default Mozilla settings.
