- Rated 2 out of 5by Jyrair, 2 years agoWhen activated, facebook is out but at the same time I'm unable to log to gmail or other websites (without using facebook-login dear trolls).
Gmail says that my browser is not secured and ask to install a recent one. Other websites ask for recaptcha and repactcha is unable to work properly when this add-on is activated.. This require to be improved.

Menu bar on the NY Times Coronavirus page (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/02/us/politics/vaccines-coronavirus-research.html) broke.
It also stopped mint.com from tracking my computer, so I had to authenticate with my phone every time. Both websites work when I uninstall the plugin and reset firefox.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 15785561, 3 years agoSeems to interfere with loading messages. Whenever I switch it on then messenger will load all the oldest messages in the chat first before allowing me to scroll down to the newest ones. This makes it unusable so I've had to remove it.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12703066, 3 years agoHated it because of lack of granularity and the way it breaks some pages. Hate it more because remnants seem to stay behind after removal.
EDIT: Hate it slightly less now because even though it survived deleting cookies, rebooting and restarting, the remnants disappeared when I closed the Facebook tab.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Dead Beat Native, 3 years agoThis extension stops Facebook from tracking you as you surf the web in Firefox; however, this extension does not prevent facebook from tracking you to other sites when clicking on a link posted on the facebook website. The Facebook link-shimming server (l.facebook.com - that's a lowercase L not a captial I) circumvents this container by injecting new copies of Facebook cookies and locally stored objects (LSO) into the newly opened container, tab, window, or even a completely different browser prior to being directed to the link you think you are going to directly.
- Rated 2 out of 5by lonestarstraits, 3 years agoIt certainly did a good job of containing facebook - It logged me out and then prevented me from signing back in again. Even after disabling the add-on.
So I guess it depends how much you like facebook. Or if you want more free time and an enforced social media detox...
- Rated 2 out of 5by Peter Østergaard, 3 years agoThe extension basically stops firefox from working. With the extension enabled, pages start loading when I open firefox, but stop half-way through. No new pages can be loaded.
This might be correlated with me being behind a proxy, but without the extension, firefox workes fine.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12334292, 3 years agoAt first, it promisees safe browsing (but why FB only? Google os no better). But than... It's a very frustrating thing to use. If you go to blocked site you can't go back - history of the tab is erased. The same if you go to unblocked side from restricted one. Why the f?!
The extension is highly powerhungry, it leads to some sites hanging. When you disable it all the restricted sites close WITH NO WAY TO RESTORE! And the same is when you enable the addon.
I could endure that, but it's too much for the thing protecting me from FB only. Google, Yahoo, and many more "Good companies" spy on us, what's the reason to defend us from only single one?
- Rated 2 out of 5by Tomi Antenna, 3 years agoThe concept is great, but the addon insists on plastering its badge symbol over every instance where it blocks Facebook connect on a webpage. I live by a very minimalist online experience through CSS and uBlock element hiding, and these badges are a scourge.
There are other addons that provide the same functionality sans the badges.
