    Hi all,

    Whenever I visit Facebook in safari it looks strange. Like white background and everything in the news feed listed. Doesn't look nice at all. It also looks like this in one of my Facebook apps. Funnily enough the website looks just fine in Terra web browser for safari. I only noticed this happen for the first time after I made use of reset safari tweak in SBsettings. Thought I'd mention that as I don't know whether or not there may be a link. Anyone have any idea what this can be?

    I'd much appreciate it as I prefer safari to Terra.

    Thanks!

    Just thought I'd add that I just tried atomic web browser and Facebook looks funny also.

    Facebook just recently changed their look but it's always had a white background.
    That shouldn't be anything jailbreak related.

    And maybe it's the mobile version. Is there an "m" at the beginning of the URL?

    Yea there is an m. And it's different to the usual. It's like just white. No blue or anything. Looks weird. And it's just like lines on news feeds in smaller print.

    Yep. That's the mobile version. I haven't found a way to go back to the old version.
    Unless you use another browser that you can change the identifier from mobile to desktop.

    Thanks graywolf! I changed the settings in atomic web browser from mobile safari to safari desktop and now the Facebook is back to normal. It's strange though as this only just started happening yesterday. Before that my safari worked fine to view Facebook.
