    On my HTC One S certain browsers ignore the Google Maps image links that often come up at top of a search, treating them like ordinary images. Others seem to behave normally. The default browser (Internet) and Chrome are both well-behaved in this respect, but Opera and Firefox don't seem to be.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what might be the reason for the difference? Is there a setting somewhere that I can use to change this?

    If ignoring these links is a design choice on the part of the developers I can't imagine what advantage they see in it.

    Opera Mobile, settings, advanced, user agent, desktop.

    Could be the same issue in Firefox.
