Its OK… It could be a lot better

I have an issue with the fact that when it needs to update a font, it causes like glitches on your computer, your screen sits there and glitches bout every 10-15 seconds the entire time its updating…. You cant do anything else on your computer untio the update is done… this issue just started about 2 weeks ago for me…. This app is also a lot different and doesnt seem to be as simple and easy to navigate as the older app version.

I've tried quite a few Facebook tabs and this is by far my favorite. It looks and feel just like the actual Facebook page. It notifies anything you authorize it to on settings such as groups comments, messages etc. And the tab aspect makes life so much easier to have it open whenever you want to with one click. It's everything I needed.

Typing stuff and ....

as I'm typing, someone replies to something I said on another page and it takes involuntarily to somewhere else as I was typing. Then, when I try and find where I was replying at, my comment has been erased and it is very frustrating.
Also, why can't I go live from the app? I can do some from my phone and iPad but can't from my desktop.
