FCIM..., OS is missing from your FCI... (Read my Sig...)

[Correct Spelling is "iMacros" btw, you manage to squeeze 3 Typos in it,, oops...! :shock: ]

Hum, OK, I don't have any 'Instagram' Account, so I can't give a try myself, and I usually "don't like too much" to help for all those Social Sites, although I can see the use for a Script for uploading several Photos on this Site... :wink:

A few "Thoughts" and a few "Things" you can try (to play with) that could play a Role...:

1- If the Upload Popup is not closing from itself, the most recurring "Cause" with iMacros Scripts and Download/Upload Popups is that 2 Statements are actually triggering that Popup... I don't know the Site and how it "reacts", so I don't know what the first 'TAG' Statement (on the 'SPAN') is doing and if it is really needed, but you can try commenting it out to disable it.

2- If your Script runs OK if you only play it once and the "Pb" occurs only when looping it, you can try adding some 'WAIT' Statement after the Upload to allow for some/more time for the Photo to upload (and the Popup to close)...

3- I don't know the Site but I'm a bit "surprised" by the 'POS=5', if 'n=5' already, you can try playing with 'POS=n' with 'n=[1-4]' to see what happens with lower Values for the 'POS=n'.

4- You could try adding (manually) some 'ONDIALOG' Statement... (before the 'TAG INPUT' Statement), although it might dismiss directly the Upload Popup without even filling it, oops...! But that might help if the Popup is triggered twice...

5- You could add some 'TAG' on some HTML Element that might appear after some Photo has (successfully) been uploaded (+ can play with '!TIMEOUT_STEP') to force a bit the Script to wait for the Upload to finish..., before going for the next Loop...

6- You could try the 'EVENT' Mode if it makes a Difference and maybe works better...

- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

I would love to help you in this problem of yours, but I cannot find the New Post button with the configuration that you sent. Are you using another plugin that opens a mobile version of the website? Since Instagram only provides the upload option to mobile versions of the website, I am assuming there is something that is left out. If you share that, I can try the script and help you out :)
