    Same problem as mentioned in all prior posts. Tried all suggestions and google images still do not expand.  All started after updating to 5.1.1. So is this a google problem or apple problem?

    Doesn't seem any one has mentioned this so here it is.

     

    At the bottom of the Google Images page is a link to the 'classic' page. Here too the javascript is a little buggy. So again I clicked the 'basic version' link at the bottom and then the page worked fine.

     

    So it seems to be the javascript on Safari that is causing the problem.

     

    Can anybody verify this solution works on their iPhone?

  • johnwisdom Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    For now yes this works for me. I click on 'classic' version, then basic and i can actually navigate image pages and click on an image and see it full size..

     

    works great for now and i dont have to use Bing or Yahoo.. FFS.

     

    Thanks

    I was also struck by this today. I updated to 5.1.1 and obviously that didn't help. The Classic > Basic view is working. Is it too much to ask that the Mobile version works on my mobile phone?

  • signature103 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    The problem seems then is not iPhone or Safari (because the javascript works for Bing and Yahoo!) but with Googles scripting for it here. The problem then should be addressed to Google and not to Apple.

    EXACT same problem here. Google Safari image thumbnails yes, trying to expand them, no. Opened up the debug console and that's reporting numerous JavaScript errors, all AFTER 5.1.1. UGH. I don't want to have to use the other search engines!

    Hi Guys, Have you tried this:

     

    1. Closing the browser

    2. Clearing History and Cookies

    3. Turning On debug console

    4. Opening browser, go to Google > Images

    5. Closing the browser

    6. and Turning off Debug Console

     

    It worked for me the 2nd time I did this. It's bloody annoying if I have to do this every time it doesn't work. Hope this helps!

  • The Kwamster Level 3 Level 3 (760 points)

    Wow. That worked! I'll see if it holds up, or if it's a temporary fix, and report back in. How'd you come up with that combination?

  • Zed.kee Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Glad it worked for you! I was just trying everything to get it working.I think being a technical support guy helps?? Lol. Hope it works for the others too.

  • johnwisdom Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    For me it just started working again today .. Didnt have to do any manipulation because it wasnt working for android phones too my brother galaxy nexus had the same problem so i think that its from google website not from the phone ...

  • b-avery Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I was looking into the error message on the debug console and I think I understand what is happening. Remember that google paid apple like 1 billion dollars. Yes one billion dollars for iPhone to have google as default search engine. Well I did some reading and I learned that google search tracking is putting a tracking cookie on to the user iPohone illegal through some loop hole in the safari engine. Well Apple may have patched that looop hole breaking the Javascript engine and stopping that functionality. So, it could be Apple fault and really googles fault. But bring security and ensurance that things are now working right and google tha bad company need to get there S*&T together.

    Ok here's what I did on my ip4 iOS 5.1.1:-

    I closed all tabs in safari and exited it ensuring it was then removed from the multitask tray. Then I went into settings for safari and hit the two buttons to remove both history and browse data or whatever they say. I then went back to gimages and tried viewing one full sized. Still didn't work.

    I then closed safari again the same way as before and went back to settings. There is a debug mode. I switched that to on then retried google images again. I had an irritating debug banner now but google images works great. Once again I closed safari back down and entered the settings. I switched the debug option back to off. Now google images seems to work as it did before and no ugly banner.
