refresh the page you’re working with
find the request you’d like to block on subsequent loads, and click on it to highlight it
select the AutoResponder tab on the right, check to ‘Enable automatic responses’, also check ‘Unmatched requests passthrough’ to let all other calls through, click the Add button (Fiddler2 will auto use the highlighted resource url for you),
in the Rule editor below, select the second dropdown and choose what you’d like Fiddler2 to do when that particular resource is requested (for example: 404_Plain.dat), click Save
reload your page

also check out the Filters tab for things like blocking ALL css or js requests…
