Facebook Photo Viewer Pop Up Window Sucks

It looks like Facebook updated their photo viewer interface. Now instead of easily navigating between photos in a seamless transition in the native Facebook interface, now there’s a stupid pop up shadow box modal window thing that is ugly, slow and way too cramped. What’s with the black background? The photo sizes have been resized so they are much smaller than before. I’m hoping it’s just a little buggy since it’s brand new, and I am hoping they will work out the kinks. Yeah, yeah, everyone hates any kind of change that Facebook does and then they get used to it and end up liking it more than before. However, this change is currently downright awful. Why mess with a good thing?

    How to fix??? I’ve had this for months now, but I’ve come to realize it is NOT like that for everyone…It seems they made some sort of update which affected certain members of FB. Is this some sick way of beta testing new features?

    FB has some ‘splainin to do.

    this new facebook Photo Viewer (is so visually repellent)
    here is a quick fix: in the url bar at the end of the address string you can highlight and delete “&THEATER” an hit ENTER then you can then view photo in old format, you have to do it for every picture, it doesn’t solve the annoying problem but its all i could find to change it..
