Facebook App Browser

Question

Hi All,

I am doing some tests on my app in different browsers and have found some issues if viewing the website on the Facebook App.

It seems the Facebook App does not allow you to open a new tab / page in their browser.

I have a Datapage where on the results page users can click a button which opens another window showing more details. It works perfectly in Chrome 90, Chrome 95 and the Twitter App.

But with FB it opens this window in the same window / tab and when the user presses the back button it always returns to the Datapage form page and not the previous results page.

Also I have noticed the FB App does not allow "automatically close window" which two of my Datapages use.

I am interested if anyone else has experienced this and has a solution / work around?

 

---- To be honest it's not a massive issue as I doubt many would be viewing my site on this app. ----

 

Kind regards

CoffeeLover

Do you have a sample screenshot of this? This is the first time I heard about it.

Does Safari on IPhone and Mac support window open in new tab / window? (Like Chrome does)

Does Safari on IPhone and Mac support window close automatically command? (Like Chrome does)

I believe it works as well.
