Critical for use with Facebook Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I would have left Facebook if it weren't for SocialFixer. This version is a breeze to use.
I am able to select areas of my timeline that I don't wish to see, that alone makes it something I want to use.
Another feature I rely on is the ability to mark posts as "read" so they don't appear again to clutter up my news feed.
I can also hide my friends to maintain their privacy and add all types of filters to help me maintain an even cleaner news feed.
Matt and his team have given us a real gem of and add-on.
Effective and clean Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Matt Kruse and team have restored the functionality Social Fixer used to have on Firefox, and more. Filters are robust and effective. The visual elements that Social Fixer adds to Firefox are unobtrusive. Comes with pre-written filters to remove some current topics you may be tired of seeing in your feed.
PaleMoon Issues Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Palemoon suggests Social Fixer to be used instead of using FB Purity. It's listed as a workaround. However, after installing it, there were several error messages. I like SF and hope there is a way to get it to work.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.601.1-signed).
The Version Here Is Old!
I hope you will revise or remove your review - the version hosted here is old and the new version is under review right now (it has been waiting over a month). It will work fine. Until then, visit SocialFixer.com to download the GreaseMonkey version, which should work fine.
poifect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
was afraid I'd be out of luck on firefox, but you can just google his site for the up-to-date greasemonkey version
not only that, the export and import from chrome was a cinch
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Do you test Social Fixer with Firefor ESR? The latest version is 31.6.0.
I know that I have to download SocialFixer from your site, no problem with that.
Not working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It doesn't work with the latest Firefox version (32.0.2)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.601.1-signed).
The version here is old
Mozilla won't approve the latest versions, because Social Fixer does things to take control of Facebook that they don't approve of. The current version at SocialFixer.com works just fine on FF32. Please install from there. And please don't leave 1-star reviews. :(
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a wonderful addon that makes Facebook tolerable to use! It manages to fix a lot of what makes FB annoying, and has great customisability but is still easy to use. Any issues or bugs are quickly resolved and the developer works hard to stay on top of any new code changes in Facebook. Thanks for a great addon!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.601.1-signed).
Very nice extension, but has an annoying bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm pretty happy with the add-on, it does what it is supposed to do nicely, but there is one issue which I consider a bug.When it's enabled it alters the ctrl-click behaviour and any link that I ctrl-click are not opened in a new tab, as they should be, but in the same tab. If I disable Social Fixer, ctrl-click goes back to its normal behaviour.
Edit: Changing the rating to 5*, because I figured out the root cause of the issue. It only happens for the Facebook Home links and depends only on the "Fix navigation on the upper left logo and "News Feed" links to go to /" option. When enabled it breaks the ctrl-click, so I have disabled it for now, but it would be nice to have this bug fixed.
Great extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love how it organizes everything in a more logical manner. Very easy to use that the installation steps are very clear. I hope Matt and the Firefox team can get things worked out soon to get the most current version available through this site rather than just through Matt's site.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.601.1-signed).
Good Add-On But You've Gone Rogue Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Great add-on! But then I see... your banner message:
"IMPORTANT NOTICE! THE VERSION HOSTED HERE IS NOT CURRENT! Please install from http://SocialFixer.com instead!"
I give it one stars because of this (not allowed to give zero stars, darn it).
Way to go, chase away users in droves. Why did you choose to not post current versions on this Firefox site where they can be Verified?
And why is version 7.601 posted on 6/24/13 not yet Verified?
Installed 7.701 from your site above. I'll be keeping one eye on this at all times now. Makes one wonder how safe and stable this is, if it will irreparably screw-up my Facebook content, or worse...
Here Is Your Explanation
I try to post current versions here, but they are rejected because of minor complaints about the techniques that I use. They don't like that I get content from Facebook and insert it into the page. I need to jump through a lot of hoops now to make them happy, and I haven't had time to make all the changes yet. It would be nice if they would just approve it like they always have, but they aren't budging.
The add-on is totally safe and used by over 500,000 people. It's accepted on other extension directories. It's reviewed by major sites. The only exception is this site, which places unnecessary restrictions on how things are done, making me the developer do a lot of extra work to comply with their rules. It's not easy or convenient.
Great Extension!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Been using this extension since it was "Better Facebook"...version 5.X...
Love being able to make Zuckerbook my Facebook...
The developer (Matt) has been super keeping up with the "improvements" made by the ADD inflicted developers at FB.
Remember: this is NOT Matt's full-time job - he does it on the side and relies on donations only...consider throwing a few cyber-bucks his way!!
It has worked excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
With the many changes in underlying code of Facebook, the author and his volunteers have done an exemplary job of keeping up. I run it on Chrome and Firefox. To date have not have any problems. And it sure does help make Facebook more manageable. There is a Facebook Group/Page to get help. Find the links on the Author's WebPage and/or Blog.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.603.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

due to recent "search for people, places and things" changes - no way to set the settings, so useless now.need to be fixed asapThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.603.1-signed).
The version here is OLD!
The version here is old, because Mozilla refuses to approve my latest changes. This problem will be fixed in the next update, coming in a day or two. You can get it directly from http://SocialFixer.com

Works very well - ignore the negative comments Rated 5 out of 5 stars
SocialFixer does everything it claims to do and more. Until you learn the complete configurability of this add-on I suggest that during the setup process you choose the pre-defined, most common configuration settings that the Author sets up for you.
Having the ability to change the look and feel of Facebook makes it more palatable. Some of my favorites are Fixing the chat window, re-ordering your NewsFeed to show new items first, disabling the stupid Lightbox popup for viewing pictures, filtering political conversations, hiding game spam, tabbed and organized news feed, themes that REALLY work, hiding the trending videos/articles within your newsfeed and many more things.
This add-on is robust enough that "power users" can easily write their own filters and rules to modify the look, feel and content within Facebook while at the same time being simple enough for beginners by having many common things pre-defined for you. You can even install with the default options and change nothing else.
Users must realize however that things will break from time to time as Facebook is constantly pushing new code out that breaks compatibility with a variety of add-ons not just SocialFixer. What's worse is that when Facebook does release code changes they never release it to everyone at once - it's released to blocks of users over a few days. It is very possible YOU may be having problems but others are not simply because you were part of an update that many other haven't received yet.
Unlike many other FREE add-ons, this author is **VERY** consistent in fixing this add-on within a few days after a major code change from Facebook is released that may have broken something. Their support team answers questions almost instantly on their Support site on Facebook.
I am appalled at the hateful reviews from clueless people below since it's beyond the control of the author when Facebook changes their code.
Final opinion, 5 stars (if I could give it 10 stars I would) Configurability, reliability, EASE of use, and the fact that the project is extremely ACTIVE in changing as Facebook changes.
Useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I use this. I donated money to the author. I cannot give it five stars because it frequently breaks, and can degrade performance if you're not careful about the settings. The author works very hard keeping this thing updated. I recognize his job would be much easier if Fb quit changing their code so frequently. Still, I must rate this based on how well it performs, and while it performs very well, it is not quite enough to garner all 5 stars. I still recommend people try it out, and I hope the author continues to provide his hard work and his high level of responsiveness.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.603.1-signed).
*Currently* in a badly broken state. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The add-on version showed me a bunch of JS errors as well, related to a library.
I would recommend the Greasemonkey version. But right now, it completely hangs my browser. :/
But don’t get me wrong: Most of the time, the Greasemonkey version worked nearly completely.
It is a dirty spaghetti solution though, that not only breaks every time something on FB is changed, but often doesn’t fix it in a very non-hackish way.
The former is not exactly the developer’s fault though. It’s the only choice one has.
So in general, I’ll simply install an older version of the Greasemonkey script, and not upgrade, until this mess is over.
Could you tell me the JS errors you get? Have you updated to the latest version 6.6? Or try installing directly from http://SocialFixer.com which may give better results.
Facebook just made a bunch more code changes, and I need to update my code to catch up. This happens from time to time, and it's just the nature of the beast!
kind of a dud Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This caused because Mozilla rejected the recent update!
I have updates at http://SocialFixer.com which fixes this problem, but Mozilla will not post it here because of some small issues. I hope to have this fixed soon.
