    I'm curious if anyone knows the reason behind this ..

    When browsing Google Images, I click the thumbnail and then click the thumbnail at the upper frame of the page (because I want to blow up the picture and not see the whole page). Sometimes, and I never know when it will be, the image gets downloaded to my Downloads folder and loaded in Preview rather than viewed directly in Safari.

    What's the meaning of this and can I force Safari to display the image? The downloading can be a real annoyance.

    If anyone knows if this has been answered in another thread please tell me. It's kind of hard to search for this issue nevertheless I haven't found anything.

    Thanks

    I also have the same problem. Its soooo incredibly annoying how it downloads SOME images but simply displays others. I don't want it to download anything unless I tell it to, so if anyone knows how I can stop Safari from automatically downloading images please let me know. Thanks.
