Isn’t the new Facebook Lightbox Photo Viewer ANNOYING?
I’m not sure what it is, but it just looks like some kind of old movie screen or a piece of crappy black grade school construction paper. A lot of people have mentioned to me they don’t care for it! Something I noticed was that you can’t save images from this view either, I constantly am doing that! You know what? You don’t have to look at pictures this way. Just refresh your screen. WHAT? Yes, just refresh your Screen!
Mozilla Firefox has a refresh button (all browsers do) like the blue circle arrow above (see where the big red arrow is pointing), just click it and your page refreshes….and PRESTO CHANGO.. Your pictures will know look like this (the old photo view!)
Ahh, isn’t that so much better??? The bonus is that you can left click and “Save Image” from this view as well. Also, if you are viewing an entire alblum–it stays in this view. How convenient is that? LOVE IT!
Want to know more permanent, fancy upscale extensions for your browser that you can add. Check out this excellent article from Makeuseof.com which discusses Turning off the Facebook Photo Viewer. For me, “Refresh” is a quick easy fix and that’s what I am doing for now.
