Facebook Endless Scroll Not Working

For the past several days, I’ve noticed that “endless” scrolling or “infinite” scrolling is not working on Facebook. Just want to ask any other FB users if you are experiencing the same thing.

The only page that still has endless scroll is my User page (aka Timeline). All other FB pages and views seem to have disabled endless scrolls.

For example, try scrolling down on the “Home” page.. try scrolling for awhile and see if it’s still endless, or if it stops at some point. Also try the same thing on any Group pages and Liked pages, should be the same thing.

Hopefully it’s just a temporary bug, but it could be that Facebook has disabled continuous scroll permanently? Any insight would be appreciated, thanks!

    Myself and many of my friends here in NZ have been having a similar issue – for a couple of weeks; not only is endless scroll not working, the feed will only show a few posts, often a couple of new ones if you are lucky before jumping to very old (cached?) ones. The Recent Posts feed may often show nothing and suggest “getting some friends”.

    The issue has been noted by the admins on the F(luff) Buster Purity page – they must have been getting a lot of reports presumably globally.

  2. Have you checked to see if those JavaScripts have been moved to a content-delivery-network (CDN) server?

    Perhaps another foul-up of one of their usual “upgrades”?

    I have never been a big fan of FaceBook ever since I started seeing reports, years ago, of their upgrades causing all sorts of problems with people’s “privacy settings”, IE: resetting to open defaults, etc.

    Might be interesting to see what they say about this from their FAQ’s?

    I am looking to use minds (dot) com pretty soon to promoted my business on. They seem to be growing very quickly, especially without all the political-correctness speech-limiting problems.

    Anyway, good luck. I hope this issue gets resolved in timely fashion.

  4. Hi I think I’m missing post from friends on my facebook timeline. Also when I scroll my timeline the infinity scrolling is not working it stops after a certain point I just noticed both of these issues as of June 26th 2019. I was wonderinf if you guys could tell me maybe how to fix this. I’m using private browsing mode in Firefox but I have also connected to facebook using google Chrome and maxthine and I’m still having the same issue I have deleted everything in my cache for all these browsers.
