Windows 10: Problems posting on Facebook with Firefox.

    Problems posting on Facebook with Firefox.


    I'd stopped using Firefox on my laptop for several month's due to multiple issues. However, yesterday I opened FF and everything was working fine. I started posting on FB and everything worked perfectly, then one of my posts just disappeared (the primary reason I stopped using FF). I'm using MS Edge right now, but I'm having problems saving websites. I'd really like to use FF as my default but I know that once this problem starts it escalates. The strange thing is that on my desktop computer, my wife can post without any problem and I can log in and they disappear every time. Another strange this is that I can post on my personal page with no problem but the homepage is iffy. I got some info from someone here with the username, of Not Myself and another from "Simmrick" I believe (not sure the spelling is correct.) Please help me to solve this problem so I can keep using FF, my favorite browser. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Fred22

    Could I ask a couple of clarifying questions, just so I understand problem a little better.

    I understand you have a desktop computer. Now when your wife uses it for Facebook it works fine. Does your wife have her own Windows user id or do you share?

    I saw your words when you log in. Is that with your Windows User id or do you just log your wife out of Facebook and then log in using your Facebook id?

    Yes, we have 2 user accounts and when I refer to logging in, I mean to my desktop, but before we go any farther I've found the browser of my dreams. A PC tech friend suggested Chrome so I downloaded it and immediately imported my FF bookmarks to Chrome...all very intuitive. I had a little trouble saving files (websites) to my bookmarks but with my friend's help I'm good to go. Thanks again, Ken. I'm sure we'll be talking again soon...little problems pop up all the time. Thanks again.

    Yes I responded to request about the best browser. I to use Chrome as my daily browser. I sign in and I tell it to sync my bookmarks.

    Good luck..
