  1. Default to not follow a post

    If I comment on a post, it will automatically notify me any time someone else comments on the same thread unless I click "unfollow post"
    As a contester, I tell 50 people a day that I voted, but I don't want to hear that everyone else did too.
    I would like to be able to reverse it, where I click on posts that I choose to follow, and I don't get notifications on the others. ty

    • Move to a certain day or until "last seen" in news feeds by auto-clicking Older Posts

      If I haven't been to Facebook for a few days, it's a pain to scroll down, show more, scroll down, show more, etc to get to where I left off. Add a feature to skip directly to a certain day, showing all posts in between.

        • tab my different groups of friends.

          I wish there were a way to tab my different groups of friends. After I went to the trouble to sort them, facebook made it impossible to even see the groups. I'm so overwhelmed with just a few political or news posts that I can't see what's up with real people I know.

                • Replace Bing maps with Google Maps or OpenStreetMaps

                  Bing maps suck, espeically outside of the U.S. An option to replace them with Google Maps or OpenStreetMaps would be great. There's a GreaseMonkey script that does this for Flickr, so I can't imagine it would be too hard to implement. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/1574

                  • Reverse chronological order of news feed

                    I would like an option to make the news stream appear in reversed chronological order. In some respects/situations it is more logic to read the oldest posts first. But if you implement this, it has to be compatible with the Older Posts option.

                    I can live with if that means that it takes a minut or so to load and display the page if I have set the Older Posts to a high number...

                    • Notifications when people become online

                      Show a small notification when people become online (chat). Extra: Maybe even customizable to only show notifications when specific people or members of friend lists appear.

                      • Add a "Bookmarks" feature

                        There's an addon called FFixer that gives you a "Bookmarks" option at the top menu bar. I'd like to not use that addon anymore since it's not updated and has some bugs but I love the bookmark feature.

                          • Prevent Facebook from "grouping" news feed items by subjects/keywords

                            Facebook defaults to "grouping" news feed items based (I assume) on keywords common to them (such as 'Thanksgiving' or 'Christmas'). It would be great if Social Fixer had an option to undo Facebook's clustering of posts in that way, and restore them to their normal place in the chronological order.

                              This is something that has been attempted in the past with limited success. It is always we are looking for, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of doing it without causing many more issue.

                              Keeping as “under review” as you never know what the future holds.

                            • Add language support

                              Hello,
                              I use this extension for a long time and I recommended it to my other friends as well, but there is one problem. My friends don't know English language. I am able to do translations into my language, I just wanted to offer my help with translating into the Czech language and I have a question, if you will add any kind of other languages support soon? Thanks, John

                                  • Newsfeed layout customization

                                    It would be very helpful if the center column/right column boundary could be dragged by hand, or at least had a wider layout option. You could dynamically resize it. The newsfeed column length could also be dynamically resized. This would allow the user to maximize the information visible in the newsfeed if wanted--i.e. making it the focus of the browser page if need be. Also, the popups which appear while rolling over the newsfeed could be maximized to stretch to the left side of the browser when they open, so the user could maximize the information visible in those as…

                                    • Use checkbox selection when building a list for filters.

                                      Currently you have to press and hold the ctrl key to add multiple selections. If you go back to add someone or something and forget to press the ctrl key, you loose all of your other choices.

                                      • bring back "View All Comments" for a photo album

                                        This was a great feature: an easy way to view all the comments in a particular photo album on a single page.... since they disabled this feature, we are forced to scroll through photo by photo which is which is tedious to say the least

                                          On July 2nd, I wrote “This is now/already available as a FB feature.” and closed this idea.

                                          FB has since removed this option completely, so I’ve reactivated it.

                                        • Option to have Page comments default to "recent activity" instead of "Top Comments"

                                          When reading comments for a post on a Page, there is a drop down for "Top Comments" or "Recent Activity". FB displays the comments in Top Comments. Would like comments to default to most recent chronological order. With Top Comments, you only see what FB decides is important.
