Phantom Facebook Urls


TheKrayTriplet

Recommended Posts

I run IE 9 on Windows 7 Home Premium. Just recently on certain websites (including this one) when accessing pages a number of phantom url's are being generated. They generally take the form of

http://www.facebook....plugins/like.ph or

http://www.facebook....extrem/login.st

I do not have and have no intention of having a facebook account. Despite constant cleaning of the internet cache, these phantom urls keep on coming back making back stepping through pages annoying. Where once I could just press the back button on my mouse, the pages now hang and I have to right click on the page history to get past these "facebook" pages.

Has anyone experienced this and more importantly does anybody know how to get rid of them once and for all? Various anti virus programs have not helped and there is little/no help out there on the internet.

lol me bad

I am running IE8 on WinXP; depending on your configurations; I use Page | View Source

to see the code

do a search for the ghost urls and see where do they originate

edit

take a look here

Thanks for that - unfortunately it looks as though they are having a bit of a problem with the IE side of things. I can download the application for all manner of browsers apart from Internet Explorer. Which is a shame as I got on well with it having been through the various versions of firefox then chrome. Perhaps I'll have to go back to Chrome. I'll update if I manage to download the IE version.

I run IE 9

There's your problem. Don't use IE! Use FF in stead. :rolleyes:

I backtracked to IE8 and still had problems. Had an automatic windows update yesterday that forced IE9 back on me but so far no problems, fingers crossed. I've been through most of the browsers and had firefox the longest then that got slower and slower. Then Chrome. IE9 when when working properly is good, but how long will that be? Who knows?

I don't have any issues with Firefox. I'm using FF with windows 7 home premium (64-bit version installed). I have to say that IE is a lot better now then it used to be, but I still prefer FF for the moment.
