Not loading Instagram.

Not loading instagram dot com, any help will be appreciated. I only see a blank page with the IG icon at the very center of the page.

I see the same as OP. (Basilisk 2019-03-27 with new profile, Win 7 x86)

Error console had this:

Code: Select all

Error: SyntaxError: invalid property id
Source File: https://www.instagram.com/static/bundles/es6/ConsumerCommons.js/44f5e27f35c5.js

Edit:
The page displayed after changing the value of general.useragent.compatMode.version from 60.9 to 52.9

(FF 52 user agent override for Instagram also worked)

Thanks for your help.
Yes, I also figured it out moments ago, by first installing that addon called "Random Agent Spoofer"... and did some search in the about:config area, and just added the string. solved!

Code: Select all

general.useragent.override.instagram.com
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0
,,,in the about:config.

Help me out here, please. I know there is likely a simple solution.

How do I access about:config to make the fix?

When typing about:config in the URL box I am able to make the change to the version number but that fouls up other things, so my question is how do I change the coding that only changes for Instagram, 1) can I directly access about:config or 2) do I make changes using a "addon called "Random Agent Spoofer" or another agent spoofer, and where would I acquire the spoofer?

You can set a site-specific user agent override for instagram.com in about:config. No extension is needed.

There are detailed instructions (involving a different website/user agent) in this post - adapt them using the strings in this code box:

Code: Select all

general.useragent.override.instagram.com

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0

Thanks, works like a charm. Also had to make the fix for buoyweather.com, a site that I use.
