    The new silk browser sucks with Facebook!! I want my old Facebook back. I can’t see any of the comments made on pages. I can only see a few pages when I go to Pages feed, and with Facebook these days, it’s the only way I csn see many of these pages on my timeline. I don’t see birthday reminders on the right side of the page nor any of the “trending” news.

    Update? So far this is worse. How do I remove this piece of junk? Kindle is bad enough but where do I clear cookies and other ‘remembered’ data now? Is it keep automatically putting in the wrong word when I try to search for something?

    The new update is okay. It’s just something else that I have to get used to
