Windows 8.1 breaks Facebook Messenger

6 posts in this topic

Opening the app launches several pages in my browser that look the same as the app itself, re-installing hasn't fixed this problem. After closing them the app works fine, but its just strange.

Facebook needs to update their garbage, they've had more than enough time to get it right

I would rather word this as "Facebook Messenger is broken on Windows 8.1"

FB Messenger has been doing this for me too lately. Win7.

 

I blame messenger, it's not the first time I've seen it do this.

I had to run facebook.com in compatibility mode. It appears LOTS of sites see the IE11 user agent string and determine you are running an old/outdated browser, when in reality, the website isn't designed to detect IE11 user agent strings. This is what was happening to google.com earlier last week too I believe, except Google fixed this, and Microsoft hadn't updated their compatibility lists yet.
