One of my internet banking site displays just about all its content as gif files, and somehow prevents right-clicking on them so that you cannot easily tell AdBlock to block their ridiculous flashy ad gifs.

The site is: https://www.usafcu-onlineusa.org

I can still use the "List All Blockable Elements" option to block the gifs, but it is painful because (a) there are so darn many, and (b) AdBlock closes the list after I add each one.

Could AdBlock do something to counter sites that prevent right-clicking on the graphics?

Adding each individual image to your list is an extremely inefficient way to do it, and can result in a huge list that will cause noticable lag when loading pages. (Don't be alarmed, all the images on one site aren't enough to cause that, but if you do that with every site....) If possible, you should simply block one thing that will filter out all the images without harming the worthwhile content. For example, if all the annoyances are at site.com/bad-images/image.gif while the good stuff is at site.com/goodstuff/stuff.htm, then add "bad-images" to your list.

You can grab the NoScript plugin, which will block javascript by default, yet let you whitelist certain sites, or you could use a bookmarklet to remove anti-right click scripts from pages manually.
