    Install F.B. Purity - Clean Up and Customize Facebook

    I have used this on Firefox for Facebook for a couple of months now. No problems and it sure cleans up Facebook!

    NOTE: This does not work with Internet Explorer.

    What does it "clean" up? I prefer to not install unnecessary stuff ...

    The extra ads and the Newsfeed or whatever it was called on the RHS of the Timeline.

    I already have Ad Blocker so I don't see any ads. I don't think I need this as well?
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I have AdBlocker plus, have had for quite a while. The FB Purity got rid of other stuff.

    Example - when you Like something, thumbnail pictures appear underneath the post you Liked, saying you may like these other sites or whatever. They're now gone.

    I suggest trying it, seeing if there is a difference you like, then uninstalling if you don't like it.

    I edited the link so it does not go directly to the installer, in case people want to actually read before they install something.

    In general, I wish people would spend time here on Pet Talk rather than Facebook - we never clutter up threads with ads, etc., and never change privacy settings on people, etc., etc.

    Awesome....worked like a charm for me and I use Goggle Chrome. Thx Catty.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I do not use FB. As a teacher, all I need is one person sending me something questionable or something that could be misconstrued and I am out of a job! One of our administrators linked his FB page up to the school's FB page and forgot that his page contained a nude photo of his wife. If he hadn't been related to someone with power he would have been immediately fired. I love spending time here, even if I'm just lurking. Ain't nothin' better than furbabies!

    I don't do Facebook, I never have, and with luck I never will. Same with Twitter.

    Death thought about it.

    Well Candace you convinced me -- but now I can't download it because the author has not been verified. Norton won't let it 'pass.'
