Magnifying Glass for Pictures Broken

Author
Time

Currently, whenever I click on a picture, it obscures the rest of the page and I am unable to return to where I was reading. The escape key, refresh, and going to the previous page and back do not work. Sometimes there’s an x in the upper right corner that I can click, but most of the time it is not there. I suppose an easy solution would be to have the escape key close out of that popup, as of now it is the most aggravating feature on the site.

Don’t click on the picture. Problem solved.

Ignoring the problem doesn’t solve the problem (plus sometimes I click on it by accident, immediately regretting it).

I agree with the second part of this post.

just got hit by this issue.

cross.svg in upper right didn’t load
also noticed that the arrow-up-right.svg next to the image URL below the picture also did not load

Opening google chromes developer tools, and looking at the console shows these errors:
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED cross.svg
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED arrow-up-right.svg

Further complaint about this whole picture thing. see this:

the zoom icon obscures the image. Do we really need a gaudy overlay telling us we can click on the image?

I agree. I will never be able to watch that movie (?) again without thinking that the hammer is actually his pen.

Looks like it’s actually tastefully censoring it.

I could make the icon background a mosaic reminiscent of Japanese porn.

Is that on desktop or mobile? I almost always visit on mobile and I don’t see any such thing on the image.

Desktop only. Mobile doesn’t have the magnifying glass

Which makes one wonder why it’s needed on desktop.

Seriously though, I don’t think I’ve ever used the feature. And even if I had, I’m on another forum where you just click anywhere on the image to zoom and it works just fine.

If it’s a choice of one or the other, I choose the new version.
