* Added option to stop news article links in "read an article" stories from redirecting via Facebook applications. The option is called "Fix news article redirects" If it cant fix the link to the article, it adds a "google this story" link that lets you search for the story via Google.

* Improved some of the "extra" filters. Please note that if you have your Facebook interface set to a language other than English, FBP's built in "extra" filtering functionality will not work, so you will either need to switch your Facebook interface to English, or else, put your own Custom Text phrases that you want to filter out in your own language into FBP's Custom Text Filter box.

* Fixed comment button on Birthday and Ticker Flyout boxes

* Fixed delete recent activity functionality, its now "hide recent activity" to reflect that its no longer deleted, just hidden.

* Fixed the option to force the newsfeed to be sorted by "most recent"

Fixed "extra" filtering for international versions of facebook user interface
Various other fixes to make the filtering work better.

Version 6.1.1 50.2 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

Important Note: if updating from v5.x to 6.x of fbpurity, you first need to uninstall the old version, otherwise it will cause problems.

if you do install v6.x directly over v5.x the problem that occurs is it says "there are 2 versions of fbp installed" the solution to that is to uninstall fbp, restart the browser then install v6.x again

Version 5.5.0 39.9 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Version 5.3.0 38.9 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Ive fixed most of FBP's "extra" filters, so they should work (for those using the facebook with the english user interface) more or less. If you are not using or dont want to use English, you can use the Custom Text Filter to add your own language keywords/phrases to filter out.

Also fixed: BA + WL links on application stories, Fixed comment button on ticker and birthday stories, fixed visible ticker frame issue, fixed meta.match javascript error. Fixed hide events box (though it now also hides birthdays and pokes too). Please note the extra filters will not work perfectly, and still need more work done on them, as they are now using text filtering, its not a precise science, and some stories in the feed dont have easily identifiable text. Rest assured I will work on improving the filtering.

fixed fbpurity info bar not showing up on new newsfeed

added "tagged in a post" stories to "commented/liked status" filter.
added "allowed subscribers" stories to "friends with" extra filter.
added windows phone 7, and facebook for windows phone 7 to default whitelist.
fixed hiding ads on the photo lightbox
