After the latest updates, whenever I attempt to navigate to someone's instagram account from a hyperlink or even typing it directly into the browser bar, I get the picture below 9 out of 10 times. I imagine it has something to do with cookies and how Firefox has changed their default settings or something, but I'd rather not have to delete my browing history, data and specific Instagram cookies every time I want to search instagram pages. Is this happening to anyone else?

I think Instagram requires you to sign in.
You can usually view a limited range of photos scrolling downward on an instragram account before they make you log in.
Like I said, this only happens 9 out of 10 times, and it just started happening after updating the most recent version of firefox. Every once in awhile it acts normally.
I'm curious if anyone else has this issue, and if it's the result of a change on Instagram's end or Firefox's, or if they just happened to correspond? Links to individual instagram posts show up just find. It's when I click on the users name to go to their home/profile page that it sends me to the log-on page. Again, this has happened only with the last week or two, and seemed to correspond with an update to this browser.
