Shelby, I haven't seen this on Facebook at all, and we have received no additional complaints about this specific issue yet. If the browser locks up every time you choose from the different 'like' options on Facebook (what you're seeing is not a crash per se), then there is something wrong with your installation or user account of TenFourFox. Note that re-installing the app alone does not change the user account, which stores your preferences, settings and add-ons.
Sorry for confusing you. I do have the latest version installed. So
the problem must be something else. I have not tried a clean install
of the OS and rather not. Is there system extensions to try removing?
(not browser extensions). The problem is real. :(
For clearing the cache: You need to click 'Empty' only once, then wait a while or just reload the pref pane after a while. The cache is clearing (slowly), only the pref pane doesn't update properly. This is a known bug.
For Facebook, please try the following:
in the URL bar (where you usually type web addresses)
I've 'liked' stuff excessively on Facebook the past day and was unable to reproduce the problem with my personal FB account.
I can, however, reproduce it on another account (@Cameron: our test account!). The overlay that pops up when hovering over "Like" is used to choose different kinds of Likes (such as a heart or an angry face); the browser tries to load the emoticons and locks up instantly and completely, necessitating a force quit.
Facebook continuously rolls out new features and doesn't do so for all accounts and countries at the same time. Therefore, the problem may spread to all other accounts over time, or it may just vanish, depending on who of us is on the newer version.
I'll try to look into this over the weekend, but as usual with Facebook the culprit may be hard or impossible to find. Sigh.
Chris, I agree. I always suspected it was facebook constantly changing
code, because of how it comes and goes. Some days it is so slow and
clunky and pinwheels. Other days it works OK but never really good. MY
tenfour hasn't worked reliably on FB for 6 months now.
If it's any consolation my android phone has also been choking and crashing lately on facecrook using chrome $$
