Prior to the last few days Facebook worked as it should. Recently features do not function properly and pages load way too slow or not at all. Are they growing too fast or what?
First along these lines… gone is the post button on the wall when you first log in. It is on your profile, however. Is this normal?
Next the chat feature does not work as it should in Firefox although at this time it may be due to the most recent Add Block Plus plugin. “If you do not have it get it as it may save you the trouble of being infected from online adds.”
This is only a very quick observation about the sites loss of quality. My suggestion? Add more servers and network capacity. It really destroys the joy of using the service. We really do not want to go back to MySpace.
One last note and if not already in place it should be. Tools to check various profile load speeds around various parts of the country and the world. These should be tested using other servers aside from Facebook.
After checking several things I am not sure what to think. Both IE 6 and 8 and also Firefox seem to have trouble. Chrome and Opera work as they should with the site. This means that it rules out add block plus on Firefox partially and as IE also has trouble. It could be a browser and site problem both.
My apologies to Facebook. It appears to be the first filter selection that users can select in the Add Block Plus plugin.
After uninstalling and reinstalling and selecting a different one it FB seems to act more normally. Further testing is required but this seems to conclude the matter. Folks this is how you debug issues.
