F.B. Purity Browser Extension
F.B. Purity is a browser extension for Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera & Maxthon that allows you to clean up and customize Facebook. This browser extension works with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
What Does F.B. Purity Do?
The F.B. Purity browser extension hides the ads, app spam and other annoying clutter from your Facebook news feed. It also allows you to increase the font size, change colors, stop auto-play videos, plus many more features that will make your experience more enjoyable and help to protect your privacy.
This Facebook browser extension is perfect for blocking out the endless stream of “Michael likes these three pages that you’ve never heard of”, “I had Wheaties for breakfast”, “I’m bored at work”, “so-and-so took this quiz”, “Johnny’s poop went all the way up his back today! We’re so proud!”, “Which ‘Star Trek’ character are you?”, “Melissa became friends with Julie”, “Chris just watered his Farmville plants”, “Margie has five new Mafia friends”, and “What is Your Spirit Animal?” messages.
Do you have Facebook friends that have enough time on their hands to raise a farm and start an organized crime family on Facebook? They do not consider the important matter of privacy or that other people don’t want to be bothered with this type of information. These applications are a huge invasion of privacy. In order for these applications to function, they need to pull private information from both you and your friends’ Facebook profiles.
Now you can save your time by cutting through the rubbish. You will only see the stuff that you care about while also blacklisting the applications that want access to your private information.
If you want to start enjoying your Facebook experience again, download the free F.B. Purity Facebook browser extension. You will not regret it.

Deleted Friend Alerts
For several years, the general population has clamored for a Facebook tool to see who unfriended them. Thanks to the F.B. Purity browser extension, it is now possible to see who has unfriended you.
If you’re not interested in this feature, like everything else, it’s easy to disable in the “F.B. Purity Options” screen with one simple check box.
There are several reasons why friends might go “missing” from your Facebook friends list. Their account may have been disabled or deactivated, Facebook might have temporarily or permanently deleted their accounts, or they might have unfriended or blocked you. Please keep in mind that sometimes Facebook deactivates hacked accounts temporarily so “missing” may not be a personal offense. When their account is reactivated, your friend(s) will be back on your friends list again.
