OK, when they did the big Forum downgrade, when you click on a pic, whether it is a hotlink or attached image, you get this stupid Lightbox thing rather than a new tab opening with the actual pic.   And you cannot right-click and save, or really do anything with it.

 

Is there a way to defeat this?   Could the admin turn this feature off, to go back to the old style?

 

Does anyone else hate this as much as I do?

Yup. Then add in the wetf  it isstupid 'You may not post this type of image extension' frickin thingy (that are now found on about half of the news sights I try to C & P the story from)....and I end now having to save their image, toss into my computer, move it over to P/Bucket then post 'em that way. Big pain in the ass.

 

Which brings me to my next question---why the fuk do people always feel the need to fix something that ain't f'ng broke?....

If you click the save icon, it will open the image in a new tab where you can right-click it and save it.
