Block Telegram Web profile pictures without blocking all images

What the title says. Talking about the Legacy version.

Is there any way to find out where the profile pictures are hosted so that I can block that site? Inspect element says their source is "blob:https://web.telegram.org/(insert random string of letters and numbers here)" but I have already blocked web.telegram.org/.

Alternatively, is there any way to get rid of the search bar?

Thanks.

Re: Block Telegram Web profile pictures without blocking all images

I don't think there is anyway to block someone's profile pictures on telegram web legacy version without blocking all images on that specific URL.

Because when you click on the name at the top of the chat page it takes you onto their contact info where you can then access their profile pictures. But the URL remains exactly the same when you're on their contact info, which would indicate that the only way to block these profile pictures is to block all images on this URL.

As for the search bar you shouldn't be able to search anything on telegram web legacy version if you have this blocked

https://web.telegram.org/?legacy=1#

Or if you flee the word telegram

But again you will need to have your specific telegram URL's in your allow list so you can access them, and you might need some sort of schedule where you allow web.telegram.org and unblock https://web.telegram.org/?legacy=1# or remove flee word telegram so you can sign back in if you ever get singed out. Or you could just never delete the web.telegram.org cookie from chrome. Just manually delete all your cookies from chrome and never delete the web.telegram.org cookie.

I already do have that url blocked, but I can still see search results. Proobably because the link of the webpage (of specific allowed sites) remains exactly the same while searching.

I guess there is no workaround this time, I'll have to exercise my self control. I'll take this as a challenge and will not fall prey to ill urges. I should try to be less dependent on Pluckeye anyway and use it as a pair of crutches, not a wheelchair.
