GAT is a binary which does this edit for you.  It toggles the state of
the string.  I found it after reading through the Junkbuster FAQ, which
mentions animated gifs.  I've used it on several versions of Netscape
Navigator, and even Mozilla, though you have to run it on the gif object
file, not the Mozilla binary itself.  In Mozilla it affects *all*
animated gifs, including several associated with the application GUI
itself (load bar, logo/lizard animation, etc.).

The hand edit is the equivalent.
