Facebook and Disconnect extension

  • Using the Opera Disconnect extension, I'm noticing it's causing problems with Facebook. Every time I launch the browser and go to Facebook, it looks like the cascading style sheet hasn't loaded (see image below) as it only displays text. I have to go to the Disconnect pulldown menu and click on Content to either block or unblock these particular trackers - it doesn't even matter if they are blocked or not. This seems to get Facebook to return to normal (further blocking or unblocking of Content doesn't affect Facebook from this point). I have to do this every time I first go to Facebook. I've noticed Disconnect on Firefox doesn't suffer from this anomaly. So far this is the only site I've come across with this odd behaviour. Took me a while to realise it was Disconnect causing Facebook to display incorrectly.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue or similar issues with Disconnect? Also are people accessing Facebook whilst using Disconnect not experiencing any issues? - it would be useful to know this too. I'm using Opera 49 (stable release) and Win 7 64-bit. This issue was present in Opera 48 but oddly not in Opera 49 beta (???).

    This is what I see when first going to Facebook:

  • Would anyone with the Disconnect extension care to respond? It would be most helpful.

  • Not a user of disconnect ext *sorry.. but if this helps

    Facebook login Works gr8 w/o disconnect & w/o vpn or with vpn on Opera 49 beta & Opera 49 stable on win 8.1 & win 10..

    If you are logging in w/o vpn check to see that Firewall not blocking any of these ips ranges ( - & ( - on https port 443 & or on http port 80
