How to Disable Facebook Photo Theater in Chrome and Firefox


Previously when you used to click on an image in Facebook, you were taken to its Facebook page as follows

but now you view the enlarged photo popped in front of the page.

This “popping out” new feature is called “Photo Theater” and I, along with countless others, dislike Theater.

If you share the same opinion and use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, then you should follow the following steps to get back to viewing Facebook photos the old way.

For Google Chrome Users

In order to view Facebook photos the old way, Chrome users need to install a script called “.” This script can be found here. Just locate the green “Install” button and click on it. After the script is installed you can check and see that new Facebook photo viewing interface has been disabled.

 

For Mozilla Firefox Users

The steps for Firefox users are essentially the same as for Google Chrome users i.e. you need to install the same “Facebook Photo Theater Killer” script that can be gotten from here. But before that Firefox needs to have Greasemonkey – a Firefox add-on that lets Firefox run scripts like the one we need.

 

You can get Greasemonkey from here. Once you install Greasemonkey, you can install the abovementioned script to disable Photo Theater in Facebook.

Or you can also refresh the page to get the old view, but u have to the same every time which is very annoying.

When you turn off your computer using hibernate, the operating system needs to store all your current running program states onto hard disk so that programs can resume where they left off when you power up your PC again. To achieve this, the OS need to save all the information into a file called hiberfil.sys. Windows OS (7, vista, XP) usually stores this as a hidden file under your C directory or your main OS partition.

So if you never use hibernate, than its time for you to get your hard drive space back.

[Note: Hibernate mode is not sleep mode. When hibernating your computer completely shuts down, however, under sleep mode your PC is not completely shut down; it still consumes a small amount of power.]

The best way to delete hiberfil.sys or disable hibernate:

  • Go to Start menu, type “cmd” open up command prompt
  • Type “powercfg.exe -h off” [make sure you are an Administrator]
  • ENTER
  • Type “exit”
  • ENTER

RESTART YOUR PC and you are all set

After restart you should be able to see more free space on your hard drive.
