Install / Update the latest version of FB Purity by clicking the green “Install FB Purity” button on the FB Purity Install Page
Tip for Google Chrome users who are having problems updating FBP: Tick the “Developer Options” box button on the Extension management page, then click “Update Extensions Now” button. Please note this won’t work if your version of FBP says “Not From Chrome Webstore” next to it, due to a bug in chrome. If it says that, you should export your FBP settings (see the FBP User Guide page for how to do this) then uninstall FBP, then reinstall it via the big green “Install FB Purity” button, then import your FBP settings which you had exported previously. After doing that FBP should be able to auto-update in future and will also be safe from being automatically disabled by Chrome, when it disables extensions that are “Not from Chrome Webstore”.
If you have any problems or questions with/about FBP, please use the available help resources on this website, including the FBP User Guide, and FBP FAQ page which includes a comprehensive Troubleshooting Guide that you should follow if you have any problems.
