Problems with MSN and Facebook

  • MSN uses Facebook for their message boards/comments but when I try to log into Facebook like it wants all a get is window popup and then disappear again over and over in a loop until I get lucky and hit the 'X' to close it and then he sends me to a different page.

    I've tried turning off VPN and ad blocking but nothing seems to work and I can't find any info where this is happening to others ..... WHAT GIVES?

  • If you've already been logged into Facebook, it'll register you with it automatically, so it seems normal.

  • WHAT???? You think a boot loop type of action is normal behavior when it makes the browser unusable until I close the browser?

    I can NOT SIGN IN TO FACEBOOK from MSN without it going into a window pop up loop .... I can't sign in to post much less actually post since it is stuck in a loop, all I can do is either play Whack a Mole with the the window popping up and then disappearing 30 times a minute or kill the entire browser

    Is that clear enough ?

  • What is the link, mate?

    If you are unable to replicate the issue using different web browsers, have you tried clearing your browser’s cache and cookies?

  • I must've misread or misunderstood something.
    Apologies. 👼

  • Well I'd post a video to show exactly what it's doing but I can't because that would actually make sense for troubleshooting problems .....

    I CAN NOT SIGN INTO FACEBOOK FROM MSN MESSAGE BOARDS. WHEN I SO ALL I GET IS A POP UP WINDOW TO SIGN IN THAT POPS UP AND IMMEDIATELY CLOSES #) TIMES A MINUTE

    WHY? WHY?

    WHY CAN"T ANYONE AT OPERA ANSWER THIS QUESTION .... It doesn't happen in Chrome .... It doesn't happen in Firefox and it doesn't happen in Internet Explorer .... ONLY Opera which I would like o use but it is completely and utterly WORTHLESS if I can't use the MSN message system that makes me sign into Facebook

    Is that clear enough yet? And don't ask me stupid question about clearing browser cache and other Newbie BS because I've been at this since early 90's .... clearing cache won't fix an inherent bug in the code ...

  • Does it happen in a private window?

  • It happens in every window .... it happens with the ad blocker on or off (As I said already) .... it happens with the VPN on or off (As I said already)

    It happens no matter what ..... the sign in window pops up and then immediately closes 30 or more times per minute until I play Whack a mole and finally hit the X to close it or I kill the browser

    How many times do I have to explain this? Sorry I'm getting irritated but sheesh ..... This thing is complete UNUSABLE on MSN ....

    Does anyone from Opera actually work here is is this just another users helping users nonsense that masquerades as Tech Support these days? People with a couple of year experience with computers and the Internet likely aren't going to be able to help someone like me with 25 year experience on the Internet and over 35 years with computers

    I'd like to get away from Chrome because some morons at Google thought is was a good idea to design an operating system around a damned web browser and have effectively ruined it as a browser but frankly Opera isn't looking much better and at least I can use MSN as intended with it ...
