    When I try to visit facebook.com a strange file is shown and when I click on it, it says the file format is not supported.

    I've attached a couple screen shots to show this.

    As the FB app is no longer showing images and it doesn't seem have chat, I thought I'd try the website in the browser.

    Any ideas why this is happening? Is it just my device or is this happening for every webOS device? Is there a way around it?

    Thanks for any help

    It's a known problem with the Veer. Mine does the same thing on 2.1.2. The 2.2.3/4 metadoctor might fix it, but I haven't tried. I'm sure it would fix the app.

    I just tried www . facebook . com on my Veer running 2.2.4 and it worked fine. x . facbook . com works fine too. Must just be a 2.1.2 bug.

    Hi there guys, I know this is a Veer thread but I wanted to give some bit of information that might prove useful to find the problem with 2.1.2 and facebook (and the strange file that it downloads when trying it in the browser).

    I just doctored my Pixi Plus with 2.1.0 using the scripts from John Steffes here (webOS 2.1.0 Doctor for PixiPlus on Verizon, AT&T, and WR (ROW)/Pixi on Sprint!) and the same problem that happens in the Veer with 2.1.2 happens in both 2.1.0 scripts on that thread. Since it is a 2.1.0 doctor and the Pre 2 works fine with Facebook in the browser with 2.1.0 maybe comparing the files could give us some clue? I do not have much idea what to look for.....

    Perhaps it is not necessary since one can upgrade the Veer to 2.2.4 but to be honest, I would like to keep the Pixi Plus in 2.1.0 but no Facebook in the browser made me go back to 1.4.5 I wanted to post here first so let me know your opinions,if nothing comes up I guess I should write on the Pixi forum but I did not want to post the same in different forums...

    That does the same thing on my Veer. I've never gotten it to work.
