  • i don't know what you did...but the change from 5.6 to 5.601 fixed the lock up issue. great job! facebook is completely unbearable without this program.
  • everyone who sees my computer running facebook asks me where I got this. I love it and recommend it to every fb user. truly amazing.
  • ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!
    As a daily facebook user, it seems the more they change the more I grow a hatred for it. I added "better facebook" and indeed it made facebook better! :) I LOVE it. I wanted the developer to know how well his add on is so much, i created an account just so i could write a review. I normally don't do that.
    Thanks for re-inventing facebook! 5 stars all the way
  • I've been using Better Face Book for about a year, and it truly makes Facebook bearable. I can filter all my games easily, change font size, add a theme, get rid of that dumb lightbox feature, see who unfriends me.... etc. Great support, too! The developer is always there to answer any questions or to deal with issues that come up. Regularly updated to keep up with Facebook's goofiness. I highly recommend this add-on to anyone who uses Facebook. :o)
  • Can you make an add-on just to disable the facebook lightbox thing. It would be much appreciated. TIA
  • This is awesome!! Another thing, maybe it would also look great if we can change the fonts.. :)
  • This is an excellent extension although there is room for improvement. For example, just like it has tabs at the top by application, it would be great if there could be a left bar giving us a choice to view postings by "Friend Category". Facebook used to have that feature but took it away.

    Also, many features of this extension may not work with the "New Profile". Facebook is transitioning everyone into that in a few days.

    Cheers!
  • It's amazing how many annoyances in Facebook this plugin eliminates. I really appreciate the fact now that I just upgraded to a new version, and it seems to be broken, throwing me back into the Worse Facebook! I installed the beta in Firefox 4.0b7 and that's when I lost it. I then installed BF 4.5, but it's still missing. [sniff, sniff]
  • Ok, a correction to my previous review. If you are juggling with multiple facebook tabs, always refresh the current tab, before modifying the options. Finally re-installed the addon, couldn't find an alternative.
  • i noticed a couple of dodgy things about this extension.

    1) the license this extension is released under, is the mozilla public license, though some of the internal scripts (the GM API enabling scripts) are actually licensed as GPL, the GPL license requires that any software released containing GPL licensed code should also be released under the GPL license.

    2) the extension has been created with Arantius' Greasemonkey script compiler, which automatically adds in Arantius as a contributor to the extension's "About" dialog box, this credit has been stripped out by the extensions developer, which i find a bit of a shady practice... credit, where credit is due, i always say.
    Do these two points really justify a 2-star review?

    1) I don't even know about this. What GM API enabling scripts? I just picked a license that seemed most open. I don't really understand all the implications of GPL.

    2) I used the compiler originally to create the files, but found that it had problems. So I had to modify the outputted source. I don't recall ever intentionally removing anything that gave the author credit.

    This add-on is generated automatically via a packaging script that also creates a chrome extension, safari extension, greasemonkey script, opera script, etc. If some things were missed out, they were certainly not intentional. I'm just one guy creating all this, so it's very difficult for me to keep it all straight.
  • Works well for the start page, not for all other facebook pages, but it is overall very helpful for getting a better view on all facebook activities and lets you hide unimportant or read items.
    The only problem is that especially tabbing uses up too many resources on my netbook hardware: Firefox uses up even more of my limited memory and slows down significantly. I have to disable it when I want to do some more but facebook...
  • Then I found this add-on and it does that and so much more. Probably a lot of overkill for me but who knows.

    Thanks!
  • I actually use the greasemonkey addon for this tool... but whether u use this add on or another one, this tool is a MUST HAVE for people that use facebook... i could never go back to facebook without it... kudos matt.. keep up the good work...
  • NICE !!!
  • I actually love this add-on. I have one MAJOR gripe, though, which made me completely uninstall this add-on. Every time you get an update, it COMPLETELY resets all the settings you had before the update. You're forced to look through a bunch of settings that you've already deselected or selected which are now opposite of before.

    This gets really annoying as the add-on is updated every month of so. I no longer use this because it's so annoying. If they fix this so that you can keep your settings between updates, however, I'll re-add it in a heartbeat.
    Options getting reset on update of the script is NOT typical behavior. In fact, I've never seen this happen with any other user.
    The only exception is that one of the most recent releases had to reset preferences because of major changes in the storage mechanism. Other than that, upgrades have always maintained preferences.
    I would like to know more about this user's experience so I can perhaps fix it.

  • Um, how come every time I now log on to Facebook I am asked to donate $5 to the developer? I declined once, I declined twice, and now is my third time: I have now declined to have this add-on on my browser and have uninstalled it.

    I assume if I would have paid the $5 the request would have gone away. If I paid $5 for every minor convenience I picked up through the Internet I would be even more broke than I am now. And I do not, WILL not, be asked repeatedly when I have declined once. Thank you, no. And any add-on that drives me to uninstalling it can't get more than one star.
    Kirby,
    You have a browser configuration problem, which is preventing your preferences from being stored. This is NOT representative of the product, and isn't a problem with Better Facebook, but instead is a problem with your browser that prevents the code from "remembering" that you already clicked okay.
    This script has over 10,000 daily users, and if it did this for every user then it would definitely not be so popular! You are one of a few users who have this issue.
    The new version 3.0 is now available at http://BetterFacebook.net
    This should be even more robust about saving preferences, so it might fix your browser problem and work correctly. I recommend giving it a try.
  • ...I have recently installed this add-on and i was wonderin if there is a way to permanently hide my updates from appearin in the newz feedz of specific people.. The only reason i added this add-on coz i was thinkin it might hve this option... bt I am a li'l disappointed.. =(
    Also, it would be really helpful if you could tell me how to hide a single update from a certain no. of people....
  • I ran this Add-on prior to Facebook's last update and loved it. However, after the last FB update I started receiving 'corruption errors' so I uninstalling it. I've installed it once again and I'm very happy I did. The changes made in regards to correcting the corruption issue seem to have have worked, no error messages at all! Glad to have this Add-on back and running great! Love It and have been recommending it to other FB friends!
  • I'm having the same issue Karen, I don't know what is causing it. This is the first release of this I have downloaded.

    I like the app, but IMO Matt, you gotta elaborate for technical errors people may encounter. I see this nowhere on any page advertising the app.
    I am working really hard to try to debug this problem, but I am unable to reproduce it. I've setup lots of different scenarios and can't cause it to happen for me. The root problem seems to be corrupt or invalid data coming from Facebook, but I'm not certain of that. And when I try to store that bad data into a JSON structure, then read it back, Firefox throws an exception. Unfortunately I don't know of a good way to scrub the data to see if it's going to make Firefox's JSON engine throw exceptions!
    So it's very tricky, and I would LOVE to have someone help me debug it who is seeing the problem and has some experience with debugging web problems. If that's you, let me know ;)
  • It would be nice if it was able to mark posts individually as read instead of just having the 'mark all as read' feature. I don't read everything right away so while mark all as read is useful I also can almost never use it.

    Also I can't find where to access the 'options' for this program, read in an earlier review it was on the page but haven't seen it.

    Would be nice if it was possible to just access the options through the facebook extension menu.
    The recent group activity notice seems to disappear after awhile and not come back.

    Otherwise I'm happy with this add-on.

    If it matters at all I used the firefox add-on download from the firefox add-on site. Have the most recent non experimental version of firefox, and windows 7.
    Hiding individual posts is in my to-do list.

    Options are highlighted very clearly on initial install. It's a button right next to "Mark All Read"! I can't hook it into the extensions menu because the original source is a Greasemonkey script that doesn't have that option.
  • A great app that is temporarily broken early Feb 2010 by facebook changes. The author is aware of the problems an is developing a fix. So essential I'm gratefully awaiting the fixed release.
  • I like all the added features, but I found out that if you use the same browser for two different FB accounts, it confuses this program and shows incorrect information in the "friends unfriended you" sidebar. Now, when I signed back into my FB account, it shows all my friends as unfriended because they weren't on the other person's FB account. I've tried uninstalling the add on and reinstalling it, but it still shows all my friends as "unfriended", even though they're still on my list.
    I never even considered multiple FB accounts on the same browser, since prefs are all stored globally. Storing them per-fb-user might be very tricky or impossible, but I'll add it to my list of things to look at.
  • Good program - great features - except my options button is inactive/ greyed out - I can adjust the options! is this something that is coming?
    The options button is on the page itself, highlighted in bright yellow when you install the add-on. It is not triggered from the options button in the add-ons.
  • Wow! I've gotta say, this a really amazing add-on. Facebook should think about implementing the options this add-on gives. 5/5 totally!
