Election season is here, and we are finding our Facebook newsfeed filling up with stories about politics etc.

The safe, free and top rated FB Purity browser add-on, lets you block posts on any subject you choose, for example if you wanted to block posts about American politics (or any other subject that annoys you) from your feed, just follow the instructions shown in the image.

Basically you just need to add the FB Purity browser add-on (available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari and Opera) then open the FBP options screen, and put the keywords that you want filtered out, into FBP's Text Filter box, then click the "Save and Close" button.

Thats it, no more posts about the keywords that you have entered.

You can get FB Purity here:

Facebook has annoyingly moved the
“Hide post” menu to the bottom right. Install F.B. Purity to put it back to the top. Get FB Purity here:

A couple of new F.B. Purity Betas have been released.
1) *F.B. Purity for Microsoft Edge on Windows 10*
Microsoft have finally added Extension support to Edge in their Win10 anniversary update. I have managed to get F.B. Purity working on Edge. Try out the FBP Edge Beta via

2) *F.B. Purity for Firefox (with Multi-process architecture enabled)* In the latest stable version of Firefox (v48) Mozilla are enabling the Multi Process Architecture feature known as Electrolysis (or "e10s" for short) for some people. Unfortunately the current version of the FF FBP extension is not compatible with that new system. This new beta FBP FF extension is compatible with it however. As mentioned in the FBP FAQ the GM script version of FBP is compatible with electrolysis, and now this new Beta FBP FF extension is also compatible with electrolysis, read the post at for more info

FBP HOTFIXES: If you have noticed FB Purity's "Wrote on Timeline" option has stopped working, or you've noticed Text emoticons are being displayed alongside graphical emoticons, or if you want the facebook "hide post" chevron menu back at the top right corner of posts, instead of facebook's new illogically positioned bottom right corner, please clear your browser cache then re-install as all these issues have been fixed in the latest "hotfix" version of FBP.

Dear Google Team,

I wonder if you could help me, it seems Chrome Extension developers are not getting the fair treatment they deserve, we work really hard keeping our extensions working and making them better all the time,

Then some scammer comes along and rips off our work and re-uploads it as their own, there is no way for us to get the fake copies taken down, I have sent 2 DMCA notices for the 2 fake copies of my extension ( F.B. Purity) currently in the Chrome webstore, and reported which i suspect to be harbouring injected malware (and have also reported them as such), but nothing gets done.

I know i am not alone in this situation, the developer of the popular Tampermonkey extension is also having the same problem, a scammer has uploaded 2 copies of his extension, with the exact same name as his own, but made them into Applications so they appear above his own extension in the Chrome Webstore search results, this is outrageous, he has also contacted Google to get them removed and yet you do nothing, why are we being treated so badly, and why are you letting the scammers get away with this? News article on the Tampermonkey situation: here:

Here are the 2 scammer copies of my own chrome extension (which has currently been "unpublished" from the webstore due to a DMCA notice from Facebook stating a claimed Trademark Infringement. Which incidentally I am currently seeking advice from the +Electronic Frontier Foundation  to get it restored back in the webstore)


(google has removed this one)

(google has removed this one)

The scammers have taken advantage of the fact my extension is not currently in the webstore (due to a DMCA notice served by Facebook claiming Trademark infringement) so anyone searching the webstore for my extension currently will be presented with the scammers copies of my extension, which I suspect to be harbouring malware, as they have changed the permissions on the extension to be much more permissive allowing it to work on any website, and adding lots of other unnecessary permissions, whereas my own extension only required permission to run on

Not only are they putting up fake extensions with dodgy inserted code, they are also using multiple fake google accounts to post 5 star reviews on them so they will look legitimate, you can tell they are fake reviews and fake accounts, because they were all put up in a short space of time, despite the extension having no publicity or website or contact address, also the exact same reviews from each person are posted on each of the copies of my extension.

Why are you not doing more to prevent this type of behaviour?

Why do you treat your extension developers so badly, we are the ones who have helped build Chrome's massive userbase, without the Chrome extensions, Chrome would no way be so popular as it is today.

I implore you to please help me and my fellow developer of Tampermonkey out, and get these pirated malware infested extensions taken down. Do you really want Chrome users to suffer in this way?

You should have the extension developer's backs, between F.B. Purity and Tampermonkey we have nearly 7 million users of our extensions, and yet it seems you couldn't care less about us, or the users who will get duped into installing these fake and dangerous extensions.

I hope we can get a swift resolution to this dangerous situation.

Best Regards,

Steve (F.B. Purity)

you need to double check you actually have the updated version installed, it should say 15.1.0 on the fbp options screen.
