Sorry
to those who are still waiting for a fix for the issue of Sponsored posts showing/ etc. Unfortunately my dad got very ill and sadly passed away, so this has greatly impacted my ability to work on this project recently, so I’ve been taking a break to try and deal with this.
 
I did manage to release 2 updates but after he died, i didnt get round to writing the release notes etc. for them.
 
Basically the latest available version of FBP now is v33.4
Fixed in this version are Hiding the “Stories” box, Hiding the “Rooms” box. New options for hiding the “Events” and “News” buttons in the top nav(igation) bar. It also fixes hiding some “Sponsored Posts” that were getting through for some people (but not all). I still do not have the facebook update that completely breaks FBP, so it is still working fine on my newsfeed at hiding the Sponsored Posts etc. I am still working on getting a fix for the people with the big change, but its difficult to do until Faceobok actually release the code change to my Facebook account.
 
Another problem is unfortunately v33.4 of the FBP extension is not available for Firefox, due to unknown reasons (theres been no official explanation from Firefox) Apparently there is a massive hold up in the approval queue for extension updates, so it may be some weeks (its impossible to say how long) before v33.4 will become available as a Firefox extension. A couple of workarounds for this 1) Install the Tampermonkey extension, then install the GM script version of FBP. 2) Use a Chrome(ium) based browser (such as Opera or Brave for example) and install the relevant FBP extension for that browser.
 
I’ve not yet updated the documentation on the FBP website with the new version number for FBP, as the Firefox version is lagging behind, due to problems at Mozilla. Will get round to that soon hopefully.
 
Please be patient while I work through things.
 
Thanks,
 
Steve
