Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So far, my research hasn't turned up anything. I am kinda surprised, since I thought there had to be lots of other people annoyed by all this animation.
Perhaps I need to suggest that to the noscript people as an option...
Sounds like the makings for a new type of plugin, if it is even possible.
I, on the other hand, was (and still am) looking for a solution that will disable the "typical" methods used on most websites that are used for animation, such that it will just work automatically for most websites.
My users can't possibly add rules and such.
It really sounds like the making of a new type of Firefox addon, something like "Animation Strip" or something, and has sets of rules for stripping or hiding typical animation elements (and this all works on the theory that there even ARE some typical elements).
The main problem is that our system uses thin clients. Sites that use such animation simply destroy the server and network. Although, even at home, such an addon would be a god-send (since I hate seeing movement on the screen anyway, regardless of CPU and network load).
