For some dumb reason every time someone posts an embedded instagram photo it doesn't sho for me, just a blank box.
Is there some settings to fix this or am I just rarted?

I updated my mac the other day and prior I could see them in certain browsers in private mode but now I'm not seeing them at all.  They show up as a grey square with the camera icon in the middle.  But if I quote the post and copy the link and open the link in another window it goes to insta and shows the link.

I have yet to find what is causing this.

If you're using Firefox, it may have "Enhanced Tracking Protection" turned on. That's what was doing it for me. I don't really like having to turn it off to see Instagram content. It's pretty wild what data gets sent to Instagram if you scroll through a post that has an Instagram post embedded in it (this affects the whole internet).

I built a bot that will directly grab the Instagram image if you quote the post with the Instagram post, and then @ the account, but it's got a few bugs to work out. It also has only been tested for single image posts, and not slide shows / video files.
