Why can i open a google image search directly into a new tab like earlier ?
Using FF18.0 on android 2.6.3. Earlier i would search on Google images. and then i would long press an image and open in a new tab. Now i am unable to do so. Presently i am forced to click on that image. Then i must click on see full size Only Then I can save the image. Why have you changed this functionality to such a long process?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0
Are you using the Phony extension?
Using Firefox 18 and 19 on Google images using a HTC G2 and a Motorola Razr I get a menu with 'Open link in new tab'.
Using Firefox for Android on a tablet I see that Google Images is using some data: URI that does not allow for opening the image in a new tab.
It is possible that Google is testing a new version of their images site.
