Where's "view image"???

I don't see it on my desktop, haven't checked my cell phone, but it is quite annoying that it does not resize automatically. I have to "Ctrl -" to see images larger than...

You link to FB, of course...

The same "games" and loop holes here exist there - perhaps even worse.
