SVG images should not be loaded when MathML is used
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

For Gecko browsers, ext.math.css forces "display: none" on SVG and makes the MathML visible. It turns out that this is not enough to prevent the SVG images from downloading, as Gabriel noted in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/165658/ for the PNG fallback.

It seems that there are some CSS tricks to really prevent hidden images to be loaded and we should give them a try:
