Q&A

How can I see old photos, so far down a Facebook page that scrolling down freezes the browser?

One relative has taken so many photos, that scrolling down to his pictures before 2020 takes too much time and effort. But once scrolling reaches his pictures uploaded in 2020, my browser froze. I had to "End task" in Task Manager. I tried this on Chrome Firefox and Edge, but the problem replicated. I tried this on 3 different computers, but the problem replicated.

So how can I view those photos before 2020? Shall I try saving his entire "Photos" page? As you can see in the screenshot below, he neither created any Albums, nor organized his pictures into Albums.

Update

Before Olin Lathrop's answer, I used extensions like "Simple Autoscroll" to automate the scrolling! After Olin Lathrop's answer, I removed all these extensions that cannot be the issue because the browsers still freeze up!

I don't know anything about Facebook or Simple Autoscroll, but the first thing to diagnose this would be to remove the plugin. Remove or disable Simple Autoscroll, then see if it still freezes at the same place. If it doesn't, then you know Simple Autoscroll has a bug and not to use it.
