facebook Photo Theater Killer is a small and simple script that does exactly what it advertises to do, and very effectively.
I'm one who doesn't really like where Facebook has been heading lately in terms of, well, everything. Call me resistant to change if you will!
This script reliably dismisses the interesting pop-up-ish screen that now appears when you click on a photo on Facebook, and immediately loads the classic photo page.
now facebook look much better
it works, BUT, it fucks up the ctrl+click (open in new tab) shortcut in firefox
and it's a real pity too
You're genius! IMHO the Theatre View on FB is something that shouldn't seen the daylight at all! The script works well on Chrome-dev. Never seen the Theatre V as for now.
I have visual impairment problems and as such, my minimum font size is 24 - 30 and that made theater mode push the photos down behind the comments div. All I could ever see was the top half/third.

Thank you, David Harvey, thank you very, very much.
I use a combination of Stylish, and adblock plus to run my browser with black backgrounds and green text on every page. I love it, but that new photo viewer on facebook wasn't working with my style, so each time I had to go searching for &theater at the end of every picture URL...
This is much easier! Thanks!
Works most of the time, and that is certainly nice.
Spot on! Does exactly what it claims. No fuss. Great stuff!
