    I have Social Fixer enabled, but I noticed it with ZERO extensions enabled as well. Anyone else getting this? Safari is pretty fast on everything except Facebook. Facebook beach balls and freezes constantly! :(

    Have you guys tried chatting with people on facebook? With every key stroke the page scrolls down as if I were pressing the spacebar, I've crashed safari 5 times just from talking to 1 person in a span of 10 minutes.

    YES! I just did that and was all like what the heck? Took like a minute to get back to the top :rolleyes:

    I think I'll just stick to Chrome or Firefox for FaceBook :cool:

    At least it looks pretty.

    No issues with Facebook here. Scrolling is fine, as is chat.

    I can't get Chrome to work - just keeps saying 'something went wrong'.

    I also have experienced a problem with scrolling on facebook chat. Each character I makes page to scroll down just as a space bar would be pressed... any idea what can be done to make it work properly? :)

    Maybe you all have different graphics cards. Things like scrolling could be GPU accelerated.
