Thanks for getting back to me! It turns out that your idea with the HTML
viewer (`mm-text-html-renderer`) was spot-on. I had that set to 'w3m',
and reverting it to the default (`shr`) not only renders faster and more
nicely, it also removes the undesired privacy problem of fetching remote

When the image loading happened, I had w3m 0.5.3-37 and w3m-el-snapshot
1.4.632+0.20190731-1 (both via Debian packages) installed.

Thank you for your help!
