Social Fixer 16.0 Release Notes

logo_detailed_20053_thumb Social Fixer Version 16.0 adds the much-requested feature of fixing Enter in comment boxes so it makes a new line instead of submitting the comment, and has a number of other changes.

Install the 16.0 update from SocialFixer.com

Significant Changes

  • In comment boxes, the Enter key can be made to create a new line. This is not enabled by default, but the first time you add a comment you will see an explanation and a link to the Options to enable it if you wish.
  • New option to run Social Fixer on apps.facebook.com. By default, it will now run for apps.
  • New option to disable Social Fixer, as the last item in the wrench menu. This turns of all functionality except the wrench itself, which is needed to re-enable.
  • Stories in the “Trending” box in the upper right show a bar graph of the relative popularity of the story. This is enabled by default but can be disabled in Options -> User Interface.
  • You can now anonymize a single post using the option under a single post’s wrench icon menu.

Other/Technical Changes

  • Changed: Removed the “When clicking the F logo and Home link, force it to go directly to the Most Recent feed.” option under User Interface, and instead reuse the “Automatically Switch to Most Recent” option to decide whether to force going to Most Recent.
  • Changed: When prefs are imported, the reload message is clearer, the Options dialog is disabled, and a button is provided to reload.
  • Changed: Improvements to the detection of storage errors to prevent false positives
  • Changed: Technical changes to the build process and component initialization will enable faster approvals by Mozilla for Firefox

Social Fixer 15.1 Release Notes

logo_detailed_20053_thumb Social Fixer Version 15.1 includes fixes for the Control Panel display and post filtering, an updated UI, and many other bug fixes and enhancements.

Install the 15.1 update from SocialFixer.com

Significant Changes

  • User Interface improvements to fonts, colors, icons, and more by Eric Tuftee, a new collaborator focused on UI
  • The Control Panel that appeared in the upper left is improved:
    • The “Post Filtering Disabled” noticed has been moved to a one-time message that can be permanently dismissed.
    • Advanced -> “Always Show Tab List” defaults to FALSE, so tabs won’t appear by default
    • Added an option to restore the position of the Control Panel if it gets “lost”
    • For most users, the Control Panel will only appear if you enable the “Mark All Read” functionality
  • Filtering improvements:
    • If “Always Show Tab List” is enabled, the control panel now correctly pre-populates all tabs defined by your filters.
    • Improvements to the matching algorithms for better results
    • When clicking a tab, sometimes no posts appeared. This has been improved, hopefully fixed.
  • New Experiment: Open a “Notifications Dashboard” window using the link in the header of the notifications dropdown
  • Additional Changes:
    • New option in Advanced to customize the css style of posts marked “read”
    • Don’t hide left column navigation of FB Settings page
    • Improvements to Anonymize to catch more cases
    • New option in User Interface to force the F logo and Home link in the blue header to reload the page and go to Most Recent
    • Disable under apps.facebook and facebook.com/saved

Other/Technical Changes

  • Fixed: When “Related Links” appear after clicking a link, some posts got filtered based on the content of the links, which should be ignored
  • New filters now default “Stop on Match” to true, since that’s what most users expect
  • Added a display of total bytes used in storage to Options -> Import/Export
  • Fixed: When hiding left column is enabled, force it to appear on Settings page
  • All HTML content written to the page is now sanitized for potentially malicious content (to satisfy Mozilla for Firefox add-on approval)
  • Internal references to images on Facebook’s server have been converted to local resources (to satisfy Mozilla)
  • Fixed: When Options was triggered to open to a specific tab, remote content (filters, tweaks, etc) were not loaded
  • Added a tooltip to the “Stop on Match” checkbox in Options->Filters
  • Removed “last_updated” field from post read data structure to conserve storage space
  • Changed default number of “cache clean” days to 4 from 7
  • Move the Options dialog down a few pixels so it doesn’t overlap Facebook’s blue bar

Social Fixer 12.0: Comment button, image previews, and more

logo_detailed_20053_thumbVersion 12.0 restores the “Submit Comment” button, adds Ctrl+Enter as a way to submit comments, fixes most image previews when hovering, and more.

Install the 12.0 update from SocialFixer.com

What's Fixed / Changed

  • Submitting comments is now better than ever! This update adds a “Submit comment” button you can click to post comments. You can also (optionally) use Ctrl+enter to submit, and Tab+Enter still works too.

    • Image previews when hovering over thumbnails and profile pictures now works in most cases.
      • https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yo/r/UlIqmHJn-SK.gifSecurity settings may cause some profile pictures to appear as the default FB Pic.
        • In some cases, image previews still don’t work, but I’m working on it.</ul>
        • Fixed the Messages dropdown so clicking a message doesn’t open it in the chat window
          • Fixed the hiding of user information popup when hovering over user names</ul> ## What’s Removed

          • I disabled the comment “reply” feature completely until I can fix it. It is broken because of major code changes in the internals of Facebook. So far I haven’t been able to make it work with their new code.

            • Removed the Social Fixer News link and subscription. Facebook removed my list with over 2.4 million subscribers, without an explanation or even notifying me! My emails to them about this have gone unanswered. This is extremely frustrating.
              • Removed the “Automatically expand “SHOW X SIMILAR POSTS” links” option because it no longer applies and doesn’t do anything. </ul> #### Questions? Problems? Need Support?
