Contents

Background

Mozilla supports both the <blink> HTML element and the blink value for the text-decoration CSS property. The blinking content produced is usually irritating at best, disorienting and confusing at worst. For accessibility reasons, the blink effect can be disabled via this preference.

Possible values and their effects

True

Display content in <blink> elements and styled with text-decoration: blink as blinking (Default)

False

Display content in <blink> elements and styled with text-decoration: blink as static content.
