News Updates (for Firefox, Chrome and Safari Users, plus info for all F.B. Purity users about the Image Content Filtering options):

News for Firefox Users of FBP
—————————————–
If you are a Firefox user (using the FBP FF extension) who found that FBP stopped working after updating to FF49, ¬†and¬†already have a backup of your fbp settings you should uninstall FBP, then goto INSTALL.FBPURITY.COM and re-install FBP, then import your saved settings. If you don’t have a backup of your settings, and want to be able to restore them, you will need to first install an older version of Firefox over your current installation, which will get FBP working again, then export (aka backup) your FBP settings by clicking the “Export Settings” link at the bottom of the FBP options screen. Once that is done, you can uninstall FBP, then update Firefox so it goes back to FF49, then goto INSTALL.FBPURITY.COM and install FBP again, the new version of FBP should work fine, and you can then import your previously saved settings by clicking the “Import Settings” link at the botom of the FBP options screen.

News for Safari Users of FBP
—————————————-
If FBP stopped working after you updated your MacOS operating system to Sierra, this is because the version of Tampermonkey you are using is not compatible with the Sierra update. To get FBP working again, you need to update the Tampermonkey extension to the latest version.

News for Chrome Users of FBP
——————————————-
Google have still not removed the fake copy of FBP from the Chrome Webstore, so please give the real version of FBP a 5* review so people visiting the Chrome Webstore will not get confused. The real version of FBP in the Webstore is titled “F.B.(Fluff Busting)Purity.

The screenshot in this image shows FBP v16.0.0’s Image Content Filtering Options, located under the “Photo Stories” heading on the FBP options screen. They let you filter out Image posts based on the contents of the images. Shown in the image are the built in filter options that let you hide cat photos, dog photos, memes, etc, but there is also a box where you can add your own list of things you don’t want to see, but bear in mind its all based on Facebook’s image recognition and classification system, which is an automated computer system, so it won’t be as good at recognising images as a human. Also important to note is Facebook’s image classification system does not identify individuals such as “celebrities” or politicians, if you want to filter posts about them out of your newsfeed, put their names into FBP’s “Text Filter” box, the big box on the FBP options screen.

For those who don’t know, F.B. Purity is a safe, free and top rated browser add-on, for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari and Opera that lets you filter out the parts of Facebook you don’t want to see, and also adds extra functionality, such as hiding all the ads, alerting you if friends un-friend you, giving you the options to change the site’s colours, fonts and background image, gives you the option stay on the Most Recent Newsfeed plus lots more.
