ad blocker & Firefox cause Facebook to display weird. Can I go back to ver 5.??

Posted

The newest ver of Firefox and the latest ver of Ad-Blocker are causing Facebook to display incorrectly. Facebook only displays right when Ad-Blocker is disabled. How can this be corrected or how do I go back to Firefox ver 5.??

Chosen solution

You can disable AdBlocker for one or selected sites and leave it enabled for everything else.

  • When on the affected page, click the ABP icon and choose "Disable on xxxx" (whole site, i.e. "facebook.com") or "Disable on this page only" (current page only).
  • It is such a minor issue that I do not see how that would justify downgrading your browser.

Firefox 5 is no longer an option because Firefox 6 preceded it and there are unfixed security issues in Firefox 5 that have not and will not be fixed.

The only supported and updated versions are Firefox 6.0 and Firefox 3.6.20.

Does not relate to your question, but...

You have multiple old Java Console extensions that Java did not clean-up during updates. You need Java Console only if you do Java programming/development or debug Java applets on web pages. You can see them in Add-ons > Extensions, but you can not remove them from there. Removing them will not affect the functioning of Java on websites. You can manually remove them, if you do not do Java development work to avoid future, possible problems/conflicts:
