I've been using Edge for awhile now (on Windows 10), and noticed that when I click a hyperlink that links to a .jpg format, Edge opens a blank tab, instead of opening the tab the picture embedded. It then immediately closes the new tab.


For example, on this site: http://www.paslc.org/RECard/#/propCard/58166


Left clicking on the photo results in an empty new tab that closes immediately; right clicking on the photo and "open in new tab" does the same but tries to download the picture to my computer. In previous versions of Internet Explorer clicking on those links would simply open a tab (or a new window) with a preview of the picture.


Does anyone know if this is even a feature in MS Edge, and if so how can I enable it?
