Recently Instagram implemented a feature on their web application that makes it so you cannot view a user’s pictures without being logged in. So I decided I would create an add-on to get around this. The solution ended up being very simple, but it took me a while to figure out what needed to be done.
The plugin works by finding the
href of the image you clicked on, and opens the url to that photo / photo set in a new tab. That’s it.
The popup does still appear when you click on a picture and are brought to the new tab to view that picture. This makes it annoying when you close out of the picture tab to go back to the main page and are greeted with that pesky popup. I will try fixing this soon.
