    I will occasionally see a picture on Facebook that I share with the forum and used to be able to do it by right clicking on the image. That has stopped working for me in the last few days. Is it just me or has something changed?

    If you were using Google, they've removed the View Image option.

    In Firefox, sometimes images can be found on Page Info, and then Media. The URL will be posted. But not for Facebook.

    I'd caution that the long URL for an image posted on Facebook can contain a hash that might be reverse engineered to access your account - if you capture it while you're logged on to Facebook. The method is esoteric, and unlikely to be exploited, but you never know. I always do a Google Image Search on the Facebook image and find it on another site that doesn't require a login.
