Greetings.

I was told to contact Apple Support with regard to an issue that I am having with Bing Image Search Results.

Image search result - when I click I get the normal pop-up window --- - Microsoft Community


When I click on a search result in the Bing Image search, I click I get the normal pop-up window, where I can click on the image preview and make it full screen, or I can go to the Page Source... fine
But someone at Bing made a change a day or two ago to the way that this window functions. Normally to get to the "Page Source" link, I just scroll with my trackpad, and that moves the page down. But since the change, instead, when I scroll on my trackpad, the action of scrolling keeps changing the image to some random preview images that I didn't want, and the "Page Source" link stays off to the bottom right where I can't access it because it's too far down and I can't scroll down to get to it.

Bing insists that this is a problem with Safari, which is why I was told to contact Apple Support.

What should I say?

GREETINGS AGAIN. Is anyone else using Safari having this issue?

If so, then Microsoft support is telling me that this is a bug and should be reported to Apple.

Yeah, i saw the same thing. It's fine when I increase the window size to something realistic for a 1280x800 monitor.

I do get any of these problems showing?
although I'm using iMac (2560x1440) with Safari @ 1, 3rd of screen.
I like you can scroll with MagicMouse & get the image change but I also see preview of pre, & next image below the main large image.

If I have bookmarks open to the side then the info link to site etc is hidden, until I collapse bookmarks.
Strange thing is @Apple within their support forums clicking on a image always shows a partial view in the popup window!

That's basically it.

But scrolling doesn't move down on the page, it changes the image as you observed, but that (changing image when scrolling) also screws up the Back button navigation because I am so used to scrolling a page and not scrolling Bing's stupid image cycling... and then when I hit Back button, instead of going back to the overall image search results, it cycles the images in the reverse direction until I hit Back umpteen million times to undo all the undesired image scrolling.
