Get the Old Google Image Search Permanently in Firefox

9 August 2010 By Ashish Mundhra

Google, now a new synonym for the word innovation recently rolled out a new interface for the image search. No doubt the new interface was admired by most but there were few who disliked the change. For people still working on slow internet connection found it troublesome to work with the new image search. For such uses there is an option at the end of the page to revert back to old image search but reaching the link altogether is also a problem. Now here is a sure shot solution for Firefox and Epic users.

  1. In the Firefox and Epic URL bar, type “about:config” and press Enter.
  2. Filter  and find the attribute “general.useragent.extra.firefox” entry, right click it and click on modify.
  3. Replace the value to  “Mozilla/2.0″.
  4. Click the “OK” button to close.
  5. Google image search will now open with the old interface.

useragent firefox

NOTE 1: To reset, right-click the “general.useragent.extra.firefox” line and choose “Reset”.
NOTE 2: An update is likely to overwrite the above-described change. Therefore after installing an update, simply repeat the above steps.
