Some Facebook users are not really happy with the new Theatre Mode for viewing photos. This feature displays photos with a black background, similar to a slide show. So, if you don’t like it and want to browse photos the old way, then FB PhotoTheater Killer, a Firefox add-on powered by a Greasemonkey user script, disables the theatre effect of Facebook photos and albums. This handy add-on prevents opening of photos in the theatre mode and takes you back to the old style.
The Theatre Mode makes the page blur and photos are displayed in a slide show style, with comments to the right hand-side of the photo. While we find it aesthetically rather pleasing, a lot of users have had complaints with it.
After you’ve installed the add-on, you will notice that the photos are displayed with the old viewer. With it, you can browse Facebook just the way you used to.
FB PhotoTheater Killer is a handy add-on for people who don’t like the new photo viewer and would like to go back to old style. Install the add-on from the link below, give it a try and let us know what you think!
