Facebook FotoFixer Extension for Safari

Facebook, as we’ve discussed at some length, loves to test new interface paradigms. A few months back they released a gallery ‘improvement’ that causes all photos to open in a lightbox instead of within the main interface. This screen has all the same links and functions of the old Facebook, but breaks expected functionality. Aside from that, it’s just ugly and lightboxes are often a hack for viewing images that limit access to the rest of the interface.

So we decided to take a crack at building a fix with Apple’s Safari Developer tools. We hope you’ll like what we’ve come up with.

What does it do?

Quite simply, this Safari extension brings back the original Facebook gallery for Safari users. It removes the lightbox-style blackout photo browsing interface. All other functions are retained, including commenting, downloading, etc.

How do you use it?


Download Facebook FotoFixer. Locate the file and open it if it doesn’t automatically run. Safari should ask if you want to install it, and will warn you about installing extensions. Click “Install”. Enjoy Facebook galleries again.

We hope you like Facebook FotoFixer – give it a try and let us know what you think!
