Hmm. That is troubling.  Might be a deal breaker.

Apparently, everything works fine in the "alpha" version of PM, but I don't know how long it will be before that is released.

I just tested, and I can read FaceBook, but I can't post in Pale Moon.

OK.   I may check out Vivaldi. I've heard lots of good things about it.

Whatever Facebook was doing, it all cleared up overnight and everything is back to normal with Pale Moon now.

You're right...all seems good now.   How strange it resolved just like that . It seems that complaining about FB  not working right on Pale Moon  has been going on for quite a while.  O well, I guess my timing was lucky this time.

FB is making a lot of background changes due to privacy complaints.

FB is making a lot of background changes due to privacy complaints.
A while back, they seemed to be having a "war" with the ad blockers.
I wondered if they were still playing that game...

They appeared to be winning for a while, but using "F.B.Purity" and  eliminating everything in the right panel seems to work.

I don't really mind the ads in the right panel. I just don't click on them.    I had a bad experience where I followed a link to what looked like an interesting article and the site delivered me some malware.  So that was the end of that.  They don't get any clicks from me anymore.

As long as the ads are not videos or animations. Those I  block immediately.

Oh, I did spend some time poking around in the Speccy results. All my hardware and stuffs seem to be in good condition. No flags anywhere.

Using F.B.Purity and eliminating not only the right panel but having the News Feed sort in order and being able to block so many other useless features makes FB tolerable.
