These two browser extensions bring back Facebook’s old layout.
If you use Facebook but aren’t a fan of the new layout, you’re in luck. These two browser add-ons bring back the old Facebook layout (pre-September 2020).
Note: These two extensions may not work at times.
Facebook makes changes and the developers have to find a way around them. The extensions may stop working altogether at some point. Check the developer's website for updates, or wait a day or two and see if the extension updates (updates may not show up on all supported browsers at once - updated add-ons have to go through an approval process for each browser).
Install the extension, reload the page, and you’ll see the old Facebook layout. Uninstall the add-on if you want the new layout back. Supports Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Opera, and Safari.
Install the add-on. Click on the icon in the address bar, and check the box where it says "Switch back to the old Facebook design?". Reload the page to get the old layout. Uncheck the box to return to the new layout. Supports Firefox, Chrome and Edge.
Both add-ons work by telling Facebook that you’re using a browser that doesn’t support the new layout. You may get a message from Facebook telling you to upgrade your browser, you can safely ignore it.
