Hi all,
Is there a way of posting images to Instagram from SeaMonkey?
Thanks,

It sounds like it should be possible by having SeaMonkey pretend to be a mobile browser on instagram.com. I don't have an Instagram account but maybe someone else can try it out.

Go to about:config and add a new string.
Name: general.useragent.override.www.instagram.com
Value: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:52.0) Gecko/52.0 Firefox/52.0

Hi isaacschemm,
I created the string; but it didn't seem to make a difference. Should I add a value to the string?
It could simply be that I just don't know how to add pictures; but from what I've read on the net, Instagram is not desktop PC friendly.

P.S. I have since added the value 'true' but no change.

The value should be:
