Get back

In case some people hadn't noticed, Google Image Search implemented a new interface last week.  It's supposed to be 'cleaner', hiding file information until mouseover, but that's precisely the problem – many people particularly want to see the file information for all images on the page 'at a glance'.

Luckily, the interface relies on JavaScript, which is readily disabled on a site-by-site basis. In Firefox, it's as simple as appending the following to one's user.js file:

user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "nojs");
user_pref("capability.policy.nojs.sites", "http://images.google.com");
user_pref("capability.policy.nojs.javascript.enabled", "noAccess");

Further instructions, including for other browsers, are available at Google Operating System.

...or for Firefox you could use the "NoScript" plug-in... cheers for the info tho.

Not really.
With 'NoScript', JavaScript is turned off by default, and only enabled (per site) by conscious choice. That's the opposite of the intention here: to leave JavaScript turned on by default and only disabled for one specific domain, images.google.com.
