Why does Atlassian documentation no longer use image preview to enlarge images?

While recently upgrading JIRA and Confluence, I noticed on the official documentation that I could no longer use a single click on an image to enlarge/preview it.  In Firefox I could right click then click on View Image; in Chrome I could right click then Open image in new tab, but in IE by default I'm not able to view the image in a new tab or window. 

Would it be possible to restore the single click image preview option?  Some screenshots in the docs are a little small (e.g., https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskserver031/getting-started-for-service-desk-admins-802164535.html) and my eyesight is not getting better with age.  It's also disconcerting when switching between FF and Chrome, where after right-clicking as described above, one has the image in the same tab while the other has it in a separate tab.  Occasionally I close the wrong tab when I'm done viewing.

I know I could zoom in via the browser, but I prefer the one-click-to-open/one-click-to-close method that was previously used.  Is there any way to have this restored, or if not, is there any better way for me to view images?

Hmm, well never mind, it's working on all 3 browsers now.  Thanks for fixing it.

Thanks for updating the people watching this question! I'm glad they fixed it too, it was annoying not being able to enlarge images. smile
