facebook Photo Theater Killer

Script Summary: Kills the annoying (IMHO) new photo theater on facebook. Instead loads the old photo viewer, as long as facebook keeps it running.

This has been tested in Chrome with the Tampermonkey extension and in Firefox with the Greasemonkey add-on. Let me know if you run into any issues. Also, if you find the script helpful, if you would, please, "fan" it.
2.1: Fixed an issue in newer versions of Firefox/Greasemonkey that caused the script to error out.
2.0.1: Fixed the timeout on the script to check the links for updating.
2.0: Added some functionality to capture the click before it can launch the theater. The theater still OCCASIONALLY shows up, but not as often as before.
