FB PURITY UPDATE : v7.6.2 – Temporary Fix for “New User” screen popping up repeatedly

Hi guys, im back at my development computer now, and have made a temporary fix for the “New User” screen repeatedly popping up bug.

If you have been following the FBP news, you will already know that the reason that screen pops up is because Facebook has started wiping out FBP’s user settings, which makes FBP think you are a new user, as it doesnt have any settings stored for you.

This updated version stops the New User screen from popping up if you are using Chrome, Safari or Opera, as those are the browsers affected by this bug.

Please note: This version has not fixed the root cause of the problem, which is the User Settings being reset by Facebook, as this is going to take a lot of work to fix and get working properly, and i will release a further update when this is fixed.

Please stay tuned for further news on this, I would recommend you subscribe to the FBP News mailing list, which you can do on the right hand column of this page

I also recommend you “Like” the FBP fan page on Facebook at http://facebook.com/fluffbustingpurity and in case Facebook decide to delete that page (again) also to “+1” the FBP Fan page on Google Plus at https://plus.google.com/+FbpurityNews

Until I can get a proper fix for the settings being reset, I recommend you save your FBP settings, via the “Export Settings” button on the FBP options screen, so you can restore them whenever they get reset. Or if you don’t want your settings to be repeatedly reset, the current workaround I recommend is to use Firefox and the FBP Firefox extension, as that version of FBP is not affected by this bug.

Please be patient, while I develop a proper fix, for the user settings being reset and if you would like to show your support for FB Purity, please donate via: http://donate.fbpurity.com
