This was never a feature of WebKit. It sounds like you have  
SafariStand installed, a unsupported third-party extension that adds  
this feature to Safari. The reason it stopped working is that we  
recently changed how WebKit loads standalone images and text. So  
extensions like this will break if they depend on internal  
implementation details.
