When single click on a google image, it docks to the right, only slightly enlarged. If I select an image while browsing, I expect it to go to full screen or least a larger window, and show the largest preview possible. Not an image that is only slightly larger over to the right. This is a new feature of Firefox I would like to disable.

Hi chuckisonline, did you like the previous behavior of Google Image Search results, where a horizontal bar opened? Someone created an add-on to rearrange the page back to that style:

Hello chuckisonline,

Google removed that option some time ago - please see :

Maybe you'd like to give this add-on a try :

Question owner

Thanks for the quick response's. I did verify that my issue also occurs in IE. I assumed it was a Firefox thing and not a Google thing. One of the two add-ons suggested worked great. One of the add-ons did not work.

This add-on worked like a charm: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/google-images-restored/

This add-on did not work for me: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/view-image/

I did close Firefox and restart after enabling each add-on individually.

Once again thanks for you to both contributors.

Hello again chuckisonlone,

As the add-on that jscher2000 suggested, works like a charm; would you be so kind as to mark his post as Chosen Solution ? (it's the "Solved the problem" button to the right of his post)

It will be helpful to others with the same problem, you see.

Thank you in advance !
