Hi, browser can't open links that consist of an image in a new tab. When you long press an image, you are offered to save that image in a gallery. When you long press a link, you are offered to open it in a new tab. BUT when there is clickable link, something like you can only save that image to the gallery, but can't open that link in a new tab.

This can be easily fixed, by changing /usr/share/sailfish-browser/pages/components/BrowserContextMenu.qml from

visible: root.linkHref.length > 0 && root.imageSrc.length === 0


visible: root.linkHref.length > 0

for corresponding MenuItem(s) I just wonder why anyone put it there in a first place.

This is an irritating bug. For example I can't open an unread vBulletin thread in a new tab if the link is an icon. Is there a upcoming update to the browser? I read somewhere of a planned update to gecko (I have on Jolla c)
