Please don't type in ALL CAPS, it's considered yelling, rude and is hard to read.

That message you see is just telling you what computers are logged into your facebook account. You can use that to see if someone else hacked your account from another location. https://www.facebook.com/help/337244676357509/ might help, but this is a Facebook question not a firefox one.

This isn't a Firefox side problem but a Facebook side problem. Try adjusting privacy settings in Facebook.

Question owner

I ORIGINALLY WENT INTO "SECURITY" SETTINGS ON MY FB ACCOUNT & UNDER "ACTIVE SESSION" & CLICKED ON "EDIT" & THIS IS WHERE I FOUND THE BELOW BUT THERE ISN'T ANY TYPE OF EDITING FEATURE.

CURRENT SESSION LOCATION: (MY CURRENT LOCATION) DEVICE TYPE: FIREFOX ON WINDOWS 7

THERE ISN'T ANYTHING IN THE "SECURITY" SETTING THAT CAN CHANGE THIS. IS THERE ANOTHER SOLUTION?
