F.B. Purity Beta v14.3.0 - 14th Feb 2016
- Fixed: Fixed "Expand News Column" option. Previously it was set to auto-expand, and would change widths as you scrolled the page down, the width should remain stable now.
- Fixed: Improved hide "Graphical Smileys / Emoticons" option to show text in some cases
- Fixed: Stopped the FBP News notification from showing up on every install, it should now only show if there is a new story on the FBP fan page.
- Fixed: Renamed Hide "Wrote on Wall" option to Hide "Wrote on Timeline" to make it clearer to new users what the option does.
- Fixed: Removed "Freeze top nav bar" option, as it no longer seems necessary and was causing problems for some users
- Fixed: Updated "Hide Trending search suggestions" option to remove political debate search suggestions below search box
- Fixed: Facebook is now adding prompts beneath your status box asking you to update your status about certain current events (such as Election debates etc) or public holidays or festivals, if you tick the "Hide Nagging Questions" option under "Timeline Options", FBP should hide these now.
- Fixed: Hide birthday posts in newsfeed if hide Birthdays option under "Hide right column links" is ticked
- New: Added "Preview" (individual web font) link next to the Web Font select box
- New: "Show Full URLs on shared links" option. (Under the Further Options heading) Does what it says on the tin.
Current Known Issues
- If you have the expand news column option turned on and chat/sidebar hidden, then open the chat/sidebar, the chat column will open up slightly overlapping the news column. A page reload will fix this issue.
- The font preview box sometimes appears in random parts of the screen if the existing font size is too large. I'm trying to fix this.
Install F.B. Purity Beta:
- Firefox v19 and above: fbpurity-R.xpi (this version should work with Seamonkey too)
- Chrome : fbpurity.crx

(N.B. If you are using a Mac, you need to drag the file from the Finder instead of the download bar)

Please test it out and leave feedback about this release on the FB Purity Beta Testing Page on Facebook,
Long overdue site redesign
I've decided its time the FBPURITY.COM web site had a much needed redesign
The reason the website is in such a state at present is because I have spent all my time working on keeping FBP itself up and runnning, which i think the users care more about than the design of the website as they don't have to view the FBP website every day, though they are more likely to view Facebook every day. If you would like to help out with the site redesign, make suggestions, help with testing or offer feeback get in touch via the FBP Testing & Development page
I've started by redesigning the FBP FAQ, which was in serious need of an overhaul
