Facebook Woes...

Unread post by jshawley » 2021-08-01, 19:06

Good afternoon. "What's On Your Mind?" I can fill that out using my laptop, and it goes through.
However, if I wish to reply to someone else's thread, typing yields nothing at all--unless I first insert an emoji. (And then it doesn't quite work as it used to.)

Of note: Facebook works perfectly on Firefox. So this is unique to Pale Moon. Something new happen?

Hmmm. I tried to search "Facebook", but mine is the only question that it finds. Don't know what else to look for. ;)

You must have used 'search this topic' instead of the global search.

The Facebook UI was always particularly annoying back when I used Facebook (I only did so for a specific
education-related thing, and then deleted my profile when that finished; in hindsight I should not even
have done that either). I have had issues with facebook on firefox as well. But a lot of this has more
to do with facebook really and their clown UI. I am using a new webmail interface, for instance, and
that just works perfectly fine on palemoon too. I wonder how much deliberate incompaibility is used,
a bit like planned obsolence in regards to hardware, as strategy against the right-to-repair movement ...
though perhaps not as obvious.
