There is no Interent Explorer for Android. As a result you need to deal with what's available. I don't know if Chrome is at fault or if there is a fix short of uninstalling and reinstalling it but since you haven't done what I suggested I'm out of options.
Thanks, Leeshor. I thought the blue/world icon is internet explorer - if not, do you know what it is?
In that browser (whatever it's called) FB only comes up in the app and I find it infuriatingly difficult to navigate.
What are the downsides of uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome? If I do that do I lose all my bookmarks, etc?
Is there a way for me to contact Chrome, ya think?
Internet Explorer is a Windows program. The blue globe is the default Android browser. Uninstalling Chrome would probably cause you to lose the bookmarks. You could still use a different browser to access Facebook, if it works. The issue you're having is not one I've heard before so I can't explain where the problem is.
