How to Get the old Facebook Chat Sidebar Back

How to get the old Facebook Chat Back With FB Purity

How to get the old Facebook Chat Back With FB Purity

Facebook are rolling out a change to the Chat Sidebar that shrinks it down to a narrow strip of your friends profile picture icons. The sidebar expands to also show their names if you move your mouse over the sidebar.

A major problem with this, is you will not likely know all the current profile pics of your friends by sight, and not all your friends have a picture of their own face as their profile pic. so it means extra fiddling about to see who is online, whereas before you could easily see at a glance. Another problem is that FB Purity’s Chat specific functions don’t work with the narrow Chat Sidebar version.

Facebooks New Narrow Chat Sidebar

Facebooks New Narrow Chat Sidebar

They only show this narrow strip if the browser is not wide enough, but luckily there is a simple solution to get the old fully expanded chatbar, with your friends names visible, back, and that work wtih FBP’s chat customization options.

Methods for getting the Old Style Facebook Chat Sidebar Back

Method 1 – Expand Your Browser’s Width

1) If you don’t have your browser full screen already, expand your browser’s width until the old style chat bar returns.

If the first method doesnt work or is not applicable, the second method should work for you.

Method 2 – Adjust Your Browser’s Zoom Level

1) Decrease your browser’s zoom level. To do this press the “Ctrl” and “” keys until the chat sidebar returns. ( If you use a Mac, use the CMD key instead of the CTRL key )

Please Note if you wish to restore your browser’s zoom level to normal you can do so by pressing “Ctrl” and “0” (zero), or alternatively you can increase the zoom level by pressing “Ctrl” and “+
2) Obviously with the browser zoomed out, the text is going to be harder to read, but you can fix this with the safe, free and top rated FB Purity browser extension’s “Font Size” option, that lets you increase the font size. The font size option is under the “Font, Colours and Design” heading on the FBP options screen, which you can access by clicking the “FBP” link in the top nav bar. Once you have selected the font size you want, tick the “Set” checkbox, and then click the “Save & Close” button.

Hope this helps! :)

Please donate if you can to help support the FBP project, and also tell all your friends about FBP

Facebook have disabled the Fluff Busting (FB) Purity fan page. Please help to get it restored!

Are Facebook really making the world more open and connected by shutting down free software initiatives that attempt to make the Facebook user experience more pleasant and less annyoing?

Are Facebook really making the world more open and connected by shutting down free software initiatives that attempt to make the Facebook user experience more pleasant and less annyoing?

On 2nd Nov 2014 Facebook disabled the Fluff Busting (FB) Purity fan page, and as per the last 2 times they did it, they gave no warning, notification or explanation.

Do Facebook really hate their users so much, that they would do this? At the time they disabled it the page had over 178,561 fans, the add-on receives consistently high reviews on the official browser add-on sites, and has even been reviewed and recommended in The Washington Post and CNET amongst other places. Many FBP users say they only continue using the Facebook site because of FB Purity. By disabling the FBP fan page they have attempted to cut off communication with the fans of FBP. I have emailed Facebook asking them to re-enable the page and give an explanation as to why they have taken it down.

I have created a new temporary FB Purity Fan Page to for letting the FBP users know the FBP news and to get feedback from the fans while I work to to get Facebook to restore the old page.

Please “Like” the new page and post your support for getting the old page back. Also if you know anyone that works at Facebook, ask them to try and find out what has happened to the FBP Fan Page. If you have a blog or are active on any forums, or work for any news sites or can submit the story to any news sites, please do, the more people that know about this the better. Facebook should not be allowed to get away with this Social Media atrocity.

Facebook shut down the FB Purity Fan page with no notification, warning, or explanation

Is Facebook really making the world more “Open and Connected”? Their fascistic policies of shutting down Fan Pages it doesn’t like, such as the FB Purity Page, with no notification, warning, or explanation seems to suggest otherwise.

As well as the new Fan Page (which could possibly be deleted at any time, as per Facebook’s usual fascistic tactics) you can also stay up to date with FB Purity News Sources that they can’t interfere with, such as:

FB Purity News on Twitter

FB Purity News on Google Plus

FB Purity New via Email

FB Purity News via RSS

Spread the word, plus if you have any ideas on how to get the Fan Page back, please share them.

Existing FBP users should update to the latest version which has been released today ( v12.7.0 ) you can do so by clicking the green Install Button on the FB Purity Install page, if you have never used FBP and owuld like to see why so many people absolutely love it and would not use Facebook without it, you can also install it via the same page

If you would like to support FB Purity’s never ending battle against Facebook, please spread the word about FB Purity and also if you are able:

Please Donate to show your appreciation for the endless work that goes into keeping FBP going despite all the obstacles Facebook throw in the way.

Best Regards,

FB Purity v12.5.1 Features: Better game/app privacy, updated disable autoplay videos function, plus many bug fixes

FB Purity v12.5.1 has been released:

FB Purity cleans up Facebook, hides all the ads and lets you Customize how it looks and behaves.

FB Purity v12.5.1 has been released. It features lots of bug fixes and some cool new features.

Changes in this Version:

FB Purity adds new Newsfeed  Options:

FB Purity adds new Newsfeed Options: “Unread Stories” & “Photo Stories”

  • New:Unread Stories” link. If you click the “Newsfeed” selector in the top left hand corner, FB Purity  adds a link to Facebook’s new “Missed Stories” feed, which is titled “Unread Stories” – “Posts you might like but haven’t seen yet.”
  • New:Photo Stories” link. If you click the “Newsfeed” selector in the top left hand corner, FBP adds a link to Facebook’s old “Photos” feed”
  • New: I added a warning if a game or app requests your email address, also made the Block App button more prominent on game intro pages, and fixed the block app link on actual game pages
FB Purity improves your security and privacy on Facebook

FB Purity inreases your security and privacy on Facebook. In this example FBP checks if games / apps are trying to get your email address, and warns you about it. It also lets you know if the app wants the ability to post to your Timeline.

  • Fixed: If you have the “Sort: Most Recent” option turned on, previously you couldn’t select to view “Top Stories” as FBP would change you back to the “Most recent” feed again. This is fixed, now if you select “Top Stories” via the toggle at the top of the left hand column of the newsfeed, FBP will temporarily allow you to view the Top Stories, but clicking the “Home” link or FBP logo will change you back to “Most Recent” again.
  • Fixed: Some people were getting redirected to the “Find Friends” page. This would occur if there were no posts at all in the newsfeed, and FBP would try and auto click the “More stories” button, but in this case it was actually a “Find Friends” button. Also fixed redirects on “Pages Feed” and “Friends/Interest list” pages, and also fixed the redirect that sometimes occured when trying to watch a video, where it would redirect you back to the newsfeed after a couple of seconds.
For a cleaner less annoying Facebook, Get FB Purity

FB Purity cleans the Junk Off Facebook

  • Fixed: The hide “Graphical Smileys / Emoticons” option as well as hiding emoticons now also hides Facebook’s new stickers in comments functionality
  • Fixed: Previously when you opened the FBP options screen it would scroll you to the top of whichever page you were viewing, I fixed it so now, when you close the FBP options screen, it returns you to your previous position on the page
  • Fixed: Web Font selection bug, it would sometimes show the wrong selected font, if the one you had selected had a similar name to the one you actually selected
  • Fixed: If the “Disable Autoplay” option was turned on, clicking facebook videos in the newsfeed would only work on the second click of the play button. I’ve now removed FBP’s “Disable Autoplay” videos option, and have replaced it with a link to Facebook’s own Video Settings page, when FBP opens the settings page via that link, it automatically turns off autoplay for you.
FB Purity makes it easy to turn off / disable Video Autoplay on Facebook

Screenshot of FB Purity‘s new Disable Video Autoplay functionality on Facebook

  • Fixed: The “Hide all Videos” filter should filter out all videos again.
