Facebook is now using lightbox photo viewer to view photos and albums. But this new feature is so annoying and useless.
Luckily, there are many ways that you can use to remove the new Facebook lightbox photo viewer (or “theater”).
- Hit F5 – When viewing any photo in Facebook lightbox, just hit F5 to refresh and it will go away.
- Remove &theater – At the address bar, remove the &theater from the URL and hit Enter.
- Facebook Lightbox Killer (Mozilla Firefox) – This is an addon for Mozilla Firefox. It will remove Facebook lightbox automatically when you viewing somebody’s photos.
- Facebook Lightbox Killer (Google Chrome) – Same like Facebook Lightbox Killer for Mozilla Firefox. This is an extension for Google Chrome that will kill the lightbox when viewing pictures on Facebook.
Hope this helps! 🙂
