    After updating from iOS 4.3.5 to iOS 5, suddenly the Youtube thumbnails in the Facebook news feed are too large (covering all of the text in the same and following status updates).* Under iOS 4, the Youtube thumbnails were scaled correctly.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    With regards to your issue, did you do a reset after the upgrade? Try these steps:-
    Do the four finger swipe up to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press one of these apps until they start to jiggle and red minus signs will appear above them all. Press all the minus signs, this will close them, not delete them. It's a good idea to do this regularly just to keep them all running smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now. if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When your iPad begins to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    Mine does that too since OS5. Nothing I do changes it.
    I'll be watching to see if anybody can help also.

    Mine does it too, in Safari and the Facebook app. Resetting the iPad does nothing to fix it. Facebook has to be aware of this.

    This problem makes my newsfeed unreadable! I hope someone at Apple is working on fixing it.

    Same here. 5.0.1 9A405. It's fairly (first world problem) obnoxious.

    Same problem here on the facebook timeline, only with youtube thumbnails, vimeos thumnails are rendering correctly.
    Really annoying as it hides the text around it...

    So, is this an iOS 5 problem or a Facebook or YouTube problem? Is it going to be something where the three groups are going to point fingers? Reported on Apple support as well.

    I think if we wanted to get this fixed, we'll need to get more people reporting it. I can't post a link yet (not enough posts) but a search for "youtube thumbnails safari ipad" will lead you there.

    Good ?.
    YouTube as an app works fine.
    Facebook as an app works fine.
    Facebook ON safari WITH YouTube thumbnails is the issue in OS 5.1 on my ipad2. They are too large & block most of the post on the page in NewsFeed. Don't know if that helps, but maybe it narrows it down?
