Facebook looks different.

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I just set up Facebook on my nephew's PC running Windows XP Pro SP3. When he runs Facebook the left hand side has a gray bar with icons for Facebook, newsfeed, messages, events, etc. On mine the left hand side is white with icons and words for newsfeed, messages, events, etc.

I tried both Firefox and Chrome browsers, but I cannot find a setting for this. I also changed screen resolutions hoping to fit it on the screen, but this didn't fix it either.

Any ideas would be helpful. I have attached a jpg of the screen capture.

Thanks for your time.

Regards,

Mike

"How does it work" -

http://www.facebook.com/help/484698331587524

Also do search on "sidebar" in that link.

Apparently, mine doesn't show because I use 800x600.

This refers to removing the "chat" sidebar -

https://www.facebook.com/RemoveNewChatSidebar

Something specifically in reference to FireFox -

You have a NEW version of Firefox? Apparently, FF "teamed" with FB to give some of this junk to you.

Google this

facebook sidebar remove firefox

Thank you, Facebook (NOT)!

Since mine doesn't "show", I have no clue.

Hi submix8c,

Thanks for the links; I will check them out.

Regards,

Mike

EDIT:

Hi submix8c,

It is because of the new version of facebook, it is a new "feature".

Thanks for your time.

Mike

Hmmm... did test and changed Display to 1024x768. Still no "sidebar" using FF12. Links indicate collaboration NewFF<->FB. Try "Downgrading" FF and see what happens.
