Google Images "See Full Size Image" Frame Missing For Some?

Dec 10, 2009 • 8:18 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Google Topics

A Google Web Search Help thread reports several users not being able to see the frame at the top of the Google Image searches. I initially thought it had to do with frame busters of some sort, but it seems more wide spread than that. Maybe Google is dropping the framed image feature? I am not sure.

I personally see the frame with the "see full size image" option link:

See Full Size Image in Google

It really seems to be that this is a frame buster type of thing going on. Frame busting is code that prevents other sites from framing you site in their site, like Google Images does after you initially click on an image result.

Yes! I'm missing the frame to in Firefox. When searching with Google Chrome the frame is still there.

This is definitely not a framebuster thing because the frame is gone on every single website that I visit while using the image search, including my own websites that have no framebuster code. For me it's only happening while using Firefox, but the people in that Google forum say it's affecting their IE too. I tested with IE8, Chrome and Opera (while using Vista), and the frame is still there.
