    I like and normally stay on “Most Recent” but like to be able to occasionally see “Top Stories” but the top stories button only stays on top stories for a few seconds before reverting to “Most Recent”? Does the FPB Most Recent feature override the Top Stories button at the top of the feed?

      if you have fbps “news sort: most recent” optoin turned on, and click the top posts link to soon after the page loads, it means fbp will not have had time to modify the link to allow top posts to load. If you wait a few seconds after the newsfeed loads (wait till the url for the top posts link has changed to https://www.facebook.com/?sk=h_nor#topstories ) then click it, it should work ok. or alternatively bookmark that link as i have typed it including the #topstories at the end, then use that bookmark to access top stories. or alternatively, turn off the news sort: most recent option.
