Facebook is rolling out a new look. You can switch back temporarily but eventually, you are going to lose that option. There is a more permanent option and that is by using an extension. This extension basically looks and works the same in all browsers.
Revert Site – https://revertsite.com
Just click on the link according to your browser. The links for the extension are:
For Chrome-based browsers:
For Firefox-based browsers:
For Microsoft Edge:
Opera: Apparently there is a bug in Opera and I can confirm that it does not work in Opera.
How To In Firefox
This is how it works in Firefox. Go to the Firefox link above and click on the blue Add to Firefox button.
When you get the message box, click on Add.
When you get the next message box, click on Okay, Got It. If you use Private Windows you can also check that box.
Now, in the top right-hand corner of your browser, you should see the extension icon. A red R inside a blue circle.
So I signed into Facebook with the new layout enabled but what I got was the classic view and if I go into the settings menu there is no option to switch to any other mode.
If you want to switch back to the new look, just uncheck Switch back to the old Facebook design? and refresh the page (use the F5 key or the refresh button in the browser).
The only downside right now seems to be that it might not be possible to make or receive video calls with this extension turned on. So you’ll have to use the new look when making calls and revert when done.
Or just learn to live with the changes on Facebook. The only real change that I can see, not counting the fonts and colours, is across the top. The normal white words on the blue bar have now been replaced with icons. With a few new ones added. Otherwise, everything else seems to be in its place.
I’m just going to stick with the new look. What do you think about the new look? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
