Facebook made a new change that broke newsfeed filtering completely!

I managed to get it working again in FB Purity v35.0.1. This release is available for all browsers, (apart from Chrome right now, as I’m still waiting for them to approve the extension update)

The clicking links in the newsfeed issue is still not fixed however, the workaround should still work (right click, open in new tab or middle click/ mousewheel click on the link)

There is also a new weird facebook bug, where after 40 posts are loaded in the feed, as well as bumping off posts off the top of the feed whenever more posts are loaded, theres also now extra weirdness where even facebook links stop working properly, and weird text appears in the left column.

Cheers,

Steve

F.B. Purity v34.9.0 is out now! It should fix hiding “Sponsored Posts”

F.B. Purity v34.9.0 is out now! It should fix hiding “Sponsored Posts” in the Newsfeed. Its currently available for Chrome, Firefox and GM Script.The Edge and Opera versions will become available when those companies approve the update.

This release doesn’t yet fix the link click issue mentioned in the previous post, as I’ve not figured out exactly whats causing it yet, and am still working on it. Will release a new update when I figure it out.

A workaround for the links not opening issue is to right click the link and select “open in new tab” or if you have a 3 button mouse or a mouse with a clickable wheel, click the middle button/mouse wheel on the link should open it.

Cheers,

Steve

FB Purity Update v34.6.7 – Fixes hiding Sponsored Posts

As you are probably aware by now, Facebook have changed their Sponsored Post code again, which means most people will be seeing Sponsored posts again in their Newsfeed.
 
I’ve released an updated version of F.B. Purity (v34.6.7) which should fix this for most people:. This release is now available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera and GM Script. Your version of FBP should autoupdate at some point to the new version, if it doesn’t or if you want to get the update right away, use your browser’s extensions/addons management page to check for updates.
 
The edge extension version will go live when Microsoft approve the update. They are the slowest at approving updates, so it may take a few days. Its worth noting however that Edge can run Chrome extensions, so you could install the chrome extension instead of the edge version, if you cant be bothered to wait. (Make sure you uninstall or disable the edge version first though, if you alreaedy have FBP installed) You could also export your FBP settings using the “Export Settings” link at the bottom of the FBP options screen, in order to transfer your settings from the edge version to the chrome version.
 
Please note that this release does not fix the “blank screen bug” mentioned in a recent post on the fbp fan page , as I have not yet had time to figure out a fix for that.
 
Please also note that I’m aware the version number showing on the FBP website does not match this release version number, i will update that later on when it becomes available for all browsers)
 
Please try out FBP v34.6.7 FBP and let me know if it fixes hiding the Sponsored Posts for you,
 
If you are not using the Edge version of the FBP extension, while you are waiting for FBP to become available for your browser, you can try using FBP’s “Zap the Ads” function, which was explained in a recent post from this Page on July 6th. By reports I am receiving, that function is working for some people at getting rid of the ads.
 
Cheers,
 
Steve
 
PS Sorry for the delay with this release, but i had a short but very much needed holiday.

FB Purity V34.6 fixes hiding Sponsored Posts and Filtering the Newsfeed – (not yet available for edge, waiting for Microsft to approve it. But available for all other browsers.)

Facebook changed their code again, which broke FB Purity’s Sponsored Post blocking and Newsfeed filtering functionality. I’ve managed to come up with a fixed version of FBP v34.6

It’s currently only available for Chrome, Firefox Opera and GM Script (via install.fbpurity.com )  the Edge browser version will follow when it is approved by Microsoft.

If you have Chrome, Firefox Opera or the GM Script version of FBP with Tampermonkey, FBP may have already autoupdated. If not you can force an update via the browser’s extensions management page, or the tampermonkey dashboard.

I am aware the latest version number listed on the install page says 34.5 i will update that when all browser versions of v34.6  are approved and available for installation/update.

I will update the news when other browser versions become availlable.

F.B. Purity v34.5 fixes the automatic hiding of Facebook Sponsored Posts!

Hide Sponsored Posts with F.B. Purity

Clean up and Customize Facebook with F.B. Purity. By Default F.B. Purity hides all Sponsored Posts in the Facebook Newsfeed

Changes in F.B. Purity v34.5.0

  • Fixed the automatic hiding of Sponsored Posts  
  • Fixed the HideShortcuts Section” Left Column Link option

This release fixes the automatic hiding of Sponsored Posts in the Newsfeed if you have the hide “Sponsored Box / Posts” option turned on, which it is by default when you first install FBP. 

As the Hide Sponsored Posts option is fixed, you shouldn’t have to use the “Zap the ads” function any more, but I have kept the Zap functionality, in case Facebook change something,  as it should still work in theory as a backup method for hiding the ads if they come back again.

This release also fixes the HideShortcuts Section” left column link option, so if you suddenly notice your shortcuts section has gone missing, it just means you must have ticked the hide option for it at some point in the past. To get the shortcuts back, just un-tick the option (located in the “Left Column Links” section of the FBP options screen)

P.S I am aware the version number listed on the FBP website has not been updated, I am waiting for all versions to be available before I do that.

If you are using the Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Opera extension versions of FBP, your extension will autoupdate at some point, if it hasn’t you should be able to update it via your browser’s extensions management page.

If you are using the GM Script version of FBP and it hasn’t yet autoupdated you can update it by clicking the install fbp script link at install.fbpurity.com then follow the instructions to update the script.

Changes in F.B. Purity v34.0 / v34.0.2 / v34.0.3

  • Fixed hiding Sponsored Posts (Please Note: it seems since this update was published Facebook have already changed their code again, so this option may not work now f0r some people) This option should hide the Sponsored posts (ads) in the Newsfeed and those in the right hand column.
  • Fixed the “Show Log Out Button” option (located under the Top Nav Bar Options heading on the options screen)
  • New: Hide “Reels” option  This option hides the “Reels and Short Videos” posts from showing up in the Facebook Newsfeed and is located under the “Video Posts” heading on the FBP options screen.
  • NewMove Nav Bar back to the top” option, This option is for those people who have had their navigation bar moved to the side of the screen and want it back at the top again. This option is located under the “Left Column Links” heading on the FBP options screen.
  • Fixed: The Auto Hide Filter. I think recently by auto clicking the hide post button, it was sometimes causing a Facebook warning popup to show up. I have removed the autoclicking code, so the popup should not show up any more, but it will still hide the post from view.
