FB Purity V21.0.0 is out, it fixes various things, and adds a few new things :)

Clean up and Customize Facebook with the safe, free and top rated FB Purity browser add-on

FB Purity lets you easily block all Facebook ads

Changes in this release:

  • Fixed: the hide “Shared a link” option (it now hides all shared external links)
  • Fixed: the following “Hide right column link” options “Stories“, “Your Pages” and “Watchlist
  • Fixed: Added hiding “Advertiser sponsored-poll” to the “Hide sponsored box / posts”  option, previously those advertiser polls were not getting hidden.
  • Fixed: Custom reactions weren’t working for some people, but should work ok again now.
  • New: Hide “Left column link” option : “Explore Feed
  • New: Added “Explore Feed” to the newsfeed drop down menu at  the top left of the newsfeed. Also added FBP filtering to the explore feed. The Explore feed menu link can be hidden if you tick the option to hide it under the Hide “Left Column Links”  section.
  • Fixed: newsfeed selector menu (If the user has selected to hide any of the left column link feeds that FBP has added to the drop down menu, they will now also be hidden from the drop down menu)
  • New: Added hide “Link this comment” box that appears when you reply to a “Recommendation” request post, to the “Stop auto tag suggestions” option
  • New: Added “Next unread” and “New notification/s from” popups (That appear under the globe icon) to the “Hide popup notifications” option.
  • New: Stopped FBP from running on facebook.com/business and facebook.com/ads/manager because it was interfering with the functionality on those sub-sites.
  • New: Added a “Reset Settings” link, that lets you more easily reset your FBP settings back to their initial default settings if you ever have any problems. If you are resetting for troubleshooting purposes, make sure you backup your settings first before resetting, which you can do using the Export Settings link, that way you will be able to easily restore your settings again if you need to.
  • Fixed: “Show deactivated friends” functionality. Previously it was stalling until the user started to scroll the page down, the function should start automatically once the “Show deactivated friends” link is clicked, and it will also show you how many friends it has processed and how many are left to go, instead of leaving you wondering if its actually working or not. (The “Show deactivated friends” link is added at the top of your friends page at https://fb.com/me/friends/ )

    FB Purity lets you view your list of friends who have deactivated their accounts

  • New: Hide the FB triangle menu (located in top nav bar) links if the corresponding hide left column link option is turned on (Menu links affected by this are: Create Page, Create Group, Manage Groups, Create Fundraiser, Create Ad, Advertising on Facebook. This makes the Facebook drop down menu much less cluttered.
  • New: Added “Instant Games” to the hide “Game/App requests” “Hide right column links” option
  • Fixed: redirect problem for workplace.facebook.com, beta.facebook.com and m.facebook.com, where if you visited those URLs you would get redirected to www.facebook.com (If you had the “News sort: Most Recent” option turned on)
  • New: options to hide the “Add files” and “Start a plan” buttons in Chat (aka Messenger)
  • New: option to hide “Coloured boxes in status update box“. the option is located under the “Fonts, Colors & Design” heading on the FBP options screen.
  • New: option to hide posts in the newsfeed that feature the “Products shown:” box underneath them (Option is located under the Various Story Types heading)
  • New: an option to let you change the “f” logo image at the top left.
    FBP now lets you customize the "f" logo image at the top left of every Facebook page.

    FBP now lets you customize the “f” logo image at the top left of every Facebook page.

    This option is located in the “Top Nav Bar Options”  section. Some example logo images you can try out are:

    (Please note: These example images were created for the old (blue bar at top) Facebook design, which had a narrower top bar, so they will look a bit small when used with the new facebook design. So you would need to use slightly bigger icon images with the new design to make them look right. (Aim for around 36×36 pixels)

  • New: option titled “Highlight Public Posts“, this option adds “**PUBLIC POST**” in bright red text at the top of any public posts in the newsfeed. This option may be useful for people who don’t want to “like” or accidentally comment on public posts for privacy reasons.

    Screenshot showing FBP’s new “Highlight Public Posts” option, That makes it clearer when a post shown in your newsfeed’s has its privacy setting set to public

  • Changed: moved the Hide “Newsfeed” option to top of “Newsfeed filters” section of the FBP options screen and renamed it Hide “The Whole Newsfeed
  • Changed: moved the “Bring back square profile icons” option to the “Fonts, colour and design” section of the FBP options screen.
  • Fixed: the broken FBP fan page news icon in the left column

Important Information for Microsft Edge users of FB Purity

FB Purity is now available as an official Microsoft Edge extension available directly from the Microsoft Edge store  So the old method of installing the FBP GM Script via the Tampermonkey extension is no longer required. If you install the official Edge FBP extension from the Microsoft Edge store, it should auto update when new versions are released in future. Be aware however that the Microsoft Store has a slow (manual) approval process for accepting extension updates, so the new version will not show up in the Microsoft Store for a day or two after I have updated the extension.

 To let other Microsoft Edge users know that FBP is safe and a great way to clean up Facebook Please leave a 5* review for F.B. Purity in the Microsoft Edge Store

Important Information for Chrome Users of FB Purity

If you have  installed the FBP Chrome extension via the “Inline Install” method (by clicking the green “Install F.B. Purity” button on the FBP Install page) or directly via the Chrome Webstore, you should now receive automatic updates (Chrome checks for extension updates once every 5 hours). If you don’t want to wait, and know an update is available you can force an update by turning on “Developer Mode” on the Chrome extensions management page, then clicking the “Update Extensions Now” button (make sure you don’t have any facebook tabs open, so Chrome can unload the existing version first).

 To let other Google Chrome users know that FBP is safe and a great way to clean up Facebook Please leave a 5* review for F.B. Purity in the Google Chrome Webstore

All other  FBP users can update to the latest version of FB Purity by clicking the green “Install F.B. Purity” button on the FB Purity Install page on FBPURITY.COM and then following the on screen instructions.

    The most recent feed is no longer working, just get top posts even though FBP says it is on Most Recent!

  2. Denise says:

    I have the deactivated friends show on all browsers except for opera… It will not show this option. Anyone know why this is please ?? :)

  3. Marianne Zoricak says:

    My FB is all messed up. It keeps going back to ‘top stories’ and when I click on ‘most recent’ I get NOTHING. It tells me to add friends. Something really got screwed up overnight.

    • admin says:

      When that happens, its a facebook bug, that sometimes pops up, its not something fbp can fix, and not caused by fbp either.

  4. Jess says:

    March 15 – The FBP icon keeps disappearing and I have to reload FBP to make it reappear. This is happening 2-3 times a week! And my FB page keeps changing appearance! It is driving me bonkers! Tried to Revert to the old, but it is not working ? Thanks for all you do!

    • admin says:

      as mentioned in the FBP FAQ page, if the FBP button doesnt show, it doesnt necessarily mean fbp is not running, there is an alternative link that should show up even if the FBP button in the top bar is not showing, that is the F.B. Purity link which should appear just above the first post in the Newsfeed.
