Lots of customization options for Facebook Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Loads of different customization options for every page and feature of Facebook; if anything there are almost too many options and while effort has obliviously been made to sort the options into sub-sections it sometimes can take a while to find the change you want. That said, when you do find it, most changes just require a simple checkbox or drop-down - nothing complicated.

The only thing to watch out for, as has already been mentioned, adding this extension via addons.mozilla.org website doesn't seem to work - you need to go and visit the official plug-in webpage and install though that.

Best Facebook experience ever! It cleans up the ads and unwanted junk and makes FB work MUCH smoother and faster! Awesome add-on!

"Bureaucratic" is good in some cases ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

... and this is one of them. At present I don't know you from Jack and I don't take chances. Yes, you have a great reputation, but when the only way I can get a working version of your add-on is to get it from somewhere other than here, I'm concerned. Even if I have no question about your integrity, I don't know if the server it's on is secure, and so on. Avoiding a possible disaster is more important to me than convenience.

Of course you have a job which most likely takes well over 40 hours/week of your time and energy. Working on an app (a good one) is more than laudable. Donations will most likely not be sufficient to replace the need of having a job, but ... it might not hurt to let those who use the app know that you need a least a small donation to have the motivation to continue (midnight pizza?). If Wikipedia (and others) can get away with that and you have enthusiastic followers, at least give it a try.

I finally got fed up with something that happens on FB to the extent that I took the time to google the issue and subsequently read about your add-on in some random forum; I then followed the link and was taken to the location you most likely reference. Immediate reaction: I went (instead) to addons.mozilla.org, was thrilled to find your app, installed it, and although it shows as being functional, I have yet to find a way to fire it up. I just want the ability to make FB stick with "most recent" sorting in my timeline. I *hate* having to change it every time I go to FB (and I'm only on FB when I'm actively interacting with it). If (as it appears) there are other benefits your add-on provides which improve the FB experience, I'll be thrilled, maybe donate. :-)

I have donated to big organizations like Mozilla and LibreOffice, to the makers of freeware apps (and it's exciting to see the app become popular enough that there's a point where from version X onward you have to pay for it--if it's really that good). I've donated to a very small # of Mozilla add-on developers because there are only a few I've stuck with. Most have, over time, fallen apart for one reason or another. Writing this missive and forcing myself to think about this has me making a couple donations next.

Anyway, my post is clearly too long. I wish you the best, I just thought I'd take the time to say, hey, I really wanted to try out your add-on but if I can't get it from the definitive authority on safety and function, it's not going to happen.

I understand your concerns, However Google Chrome's extension system doesn't require the same bureaucracy to publish new extensions and that system seems to be working fine to me and them.

I submitted an updated version of the FBP extension here back in november, it has been in the bureaucratic review system for over 2 months now, and in that time I must have released at least 10 or more updates to the extension, however Mozilla's update system is so broken, if I had actually uploaded those new versions here each time I changed the extension, it would push my extension to the back of the review queue each time. The number of times the extension needs to be updated to be kept working is due to the constant changes Facebook make to their pages. Unfortunately Mozilla's extension update system on this site is not compatible with rapidly changing extensions such as FBP, and probably one of the reasons Chrome is now much more popular than Firefox.

To wait 2 months for Mozilla to officially review an extension update is a bit of a joke really, when updating an extension on the official Chrome extension site usually takes under an hour.

The FBPURITY.COM site is the definitive authority on FB PURITY and if you don't trust that, or the fact that FB Purity has been in development since March 2009 or the multitude of 5 star reviews on this site and the other official extension sites for the other supported browsers or the reviews in the International press such as The Washington Post and CNET then I guess, yes, you can always just wait for Mozilla to pull their finger out and modernise their extension update/review system.

The ridiculous thing about this, is even after the current "new" (though already outdated) version that i have uploaded here gets reviewed, i will immediately need to upload the actual latest version of FBP, (after painstakingly modifying it to make sure it complies with their often pointless bureaucratic standards) and then the whole bureaucratic waiting process begins again, and maybe it will take another 2 months before that version gets officially rolled out on this site, meanwhile Facebook are updating their code on their site daily breaking stuff in my extension.

I've used this before but it's stopped working in FireFox. It works just great on my Chrome browser. That's annoying. I use Firefox 98% of the time but if I need to use Facebook, I have to go to Chrome. I love F.B Purity, I just wish it worked in FireFox again.

YEAH!. It works! Thanks so much. Who reads descriptions when you already know F.B. Purity works like a charm? Thanks so much for pointing it out.

It sounds like you are talking about the version of the addon from this site.

The version of the firefox add-on on this site is out of date now and will not work correctly, if you want the latest working version of FBP for firefox, you need to install it via http://install.fbpurity.com

This is mentioned in the add-on's description.

What's really needed is a non-commercial, open source "Facebook." Until that happens this is the best alternative. It is VERY good. VERY helpful. VERY useful.

Latest v.9.9.1 available on developers site is not working at all. Rather the v. available on AMO is working. Thanks to developer for all the effort he puts in to maintain this in a hostile environment.

This nice app used to work and I loved it. The author used to try to keep up with Facebook's attempts to shut it down or just make it so it wouldn't work. Wonderful!

UPDATE: The author points out that Firefox updates for FBPurity are out of date. Its funny, but the Firefox older version actually works good. When I use the new versions from the FBP site, it doesn't work at all. I'll keep an eye on future FBP updates and keep trying them until one works, but for now version 9.3 is working great!!

You are mistaken, the add-on is being kept up to date. Please update your review.

You are mistaken, please read the extension's description, it is indeed being kept up to date, you just need to install it via the extension's website at http://fbpurity.com

Please update your review, to reflect this fact, thanks.

Excellent F/B companion! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Your add on is by far the best there is. Gets rid of all the BS on Facebook. Thank you and keep up the good work

Fantastic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am so pleased with this add-on I can hardly put it into words. My News Feed and Timeline load so much faster it's amazing. Being able to block all the recommendation crap and ads makes using Facebook actually enjoyable, as before the add-on there was so much stuff to endure just to be able to keep up with friends and interests I would often get impatient and just close the browser. I can't speak for Macs or other browsers, but if you want to rid your Facebook experience of 95% of the clutter, then get this add-on for your Firefox. You won't regret it.
