[buug] Images in Firebird (aka Phoenix)

I would put those specific sites in your /etc/hosts file and have it point

then run a small program that will return back a minimal http response...
It can be a tiny script that just listens on port 80
or you can run webserver like apache or something

every time one of the urls is in a page instead of loading the ad it will just
load a tiny blank page

I know you didn't want to run anything at all so this is probably not ideal 
for you
