Better Facebook! Publisher's description
from Matt Kruse
Enhances Facebook by taking more control over your News Feed and other areas!
Better Facebook! is a Firefox extension that allows you to hide stories you've already seen, be alerted of new comments to stories you haven't posted on, hide any story type (stop seeing all those stories about friends adding friends!), or even just minimize some story types so they are less intrusive. Make Facebook more usable!
Facebook recently made yet another unwelcome change to userвЂ™s profiles: When you comment on a friendвЂ™s status or a pageвЂ™s post or take other actions on Facebook, an entry will be put into your profile. And now, the entry doesnвЂ™t just say "Matt commented on JoeвЂ™s status" вЂ“ it gives a little blurb of the actual text!
What's New in This Release:В· New Option: Fix the missing cursor problem in comment boxes (вЂњPostsвЂќ tab). Many users (mostly using Firefox) have the problem of the cursor not being visible in comment boxes. This fix resolves that problem. By default, it is enabled for Firefox users.
В· New Option: Fix the line wrap problem in comments as you type past the end of line (вЂњPostsвЂќ tab). Some users see a problem where entering text in comments does not cause the text box to grow to a new line when it should. This fixes that problem.
В· Added new story types: вЂњFacebook DealsвЂќ (366,289), Tagged posts (77), Relationships (62,9), Posts to private groups (308), Posts to event walls (55), and Friend playing game (360). You may now select these stores in the Filtering tab of Options to hide them, tab them, etc.
В· Added вЂњRelationship ChangesвЂќ to the recent activity types to optionally remove (Display tab in Options). So now you can uncheck this if you donвЂ™t want BFB to remove from your wall the news that you just got married Smile
В· New Option: Disable FacebookвЂ™s auto-loading of more posts as you scroll down (on the Posts tab). By default, Facebook loads more posts as you scroll near the bottom of the page. This sometimes conflicts with BFBвЂ™s auto-clicking of Older Posts, and sometimes it just annoys people. By default, BFB disables this feature of FB, but you can change it back if you want to.
В· Changed: Pressing Esc anywhere on the document (rather than just when cursor is in the comment box) now puts the floating вЂњReplyвЂќ comment box back to its original position
В· Fixed: The option to stretch the news feed to full width stopped working after a Facebook code change.
В· Clicking вЂњReply with first names onlyвЂќ in comment replies now correctly saves the setting and changes the current comment text to first name only
В· Text filters were incorrectly applied to posts containing comments that matched the text. Now text filters will only match the post itself and any attachments
В· Some filters based on Author were not filtering correctly because of missing internal Facebook data
В· Occasionally, some users would be taken to their notifications page when the home page was loaded
В· Image preview stopped working on some profile pictures in news feed
В· Automatic daily cleaning of preference story data was not being performed
В· вЂњReplyвЂќ feature on comments didnвЂ™t work in Groups or Photo pages
В· Some bugs with post re-ordering caused posts to go to incorrect tabs or get of out chronological order
В· The check for duplicate posts has been improved. This will hopefully fix the problem that caused all posts to disappear when returning to Facebook after being idle for some time.
В· Increased reliability of auto-clicking older posts
В· Tips of the Day were sometimes appearing again after being closed
Under The Hood:
В· Added a helpful message if recent activity removal fails and 3rd party cookies are possibly disabled
В· Added alert to Safari users with corrupt extension APIвЂ™s caused by SIMBL, CTLoader, and Conduit
В· Added a dump of all filters and other helpful info to post debug output (when you click the вЂњiвЂќ icon on posts) for easier assisting of filtering problems
В· Added detection of multiple versions installed at the same time
В· Disabled internal auto-checking for updates in the Chrome Gallery version
