I took a screenshot of something I was seeing in an app and uploaded it to an image host (6pix.net), but when I copy the direct link, paste in on my address bar and press Enter, I see this:

 

temp2.jpg

 

However, when I right clicked in Firefox, copied the image location and searched with google image, google actually searched for the image I uploaded!

 

I'm very concerned about this and I have no idea who/what is responsible for this. I don't even understand how it's done! Any info will be greatly appreciated. And sure, I can use other image hosts, but I don't appreciate 3rd parties controlling what I see on my PC.

 

I use Windows 7 with Firefox and the following add-ons and software:

 

eset smart security 6

no-script

adblock plus

Are you taking a screenshot or are you saving the pic to your hard drive? When I download a pic, I right click and choose Save As... Maybe this is a copyright issue.

Might have something to do with the 6pix.net TOS:

Since you informed you use Firefox please check if you have the latest one installed. If you have the latest one installed try resetting the firefox. Resetting will disable all the add ons.

Steps to reset

Open the Firefox window

In the address bar type in about:support

On the top right part of the page opened you will see Firefox.

 

This will help you to disable all the settings, in short will make the Firefox to default.

 

Steps to work in safe mode

 

Tap Windows key(Windows flag key) + R key on your key board

Type in "firefox -safe-mode" and click OK

Click on safe mode.

 

Try this and post the results here

 

Thanks and Regards

Aswin
