Links to Facebook content received via email do not take me to the correct location..a link to a comment only takes me to the album the photo is in, not the pic

Links to Facebook content received via email do not take me to the correct location..a link to a comment on a photo for example, only takes me to the album the photo is in, not the actual photo...so. I have to open the album and look at every photo (usually 200 or more) until I find the comment...I'm using Vista and Windows Mail...

Right-click on the link. Select Copy Link. Paste it somewhere. Now open the link. Are they the same?

I had a similar issue and found it was caused by an add-on.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

No, neither worked...I tried safe mode and copy and paste...same results...takes me to the album instead of the comment under the exact photo...(there are comments below the entire album also, but this comment link was for an individual photo in that album)...I had to check each photo in the album until I saw the comment...

I don't have Facebook. I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.
