Revert Site is a safe, lightweight and simple to use web browser add-on / extension that installs in seconds & brings back the old style Facebook design / layout

** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ **


** UPDATE 24/11/20 ** I've released a new version v9+ that should work once more to get the old design back. The new version has 2 Revert Modes. Mode 1 uses a new Revert method, which can Revert the Newsfeed as well as the rest of the Facebook site. Only downside is it is not compatible with everybody's Facebook account. Mode 1 is the new default mode, so it runs after its first installed. If Mode 1 is not comaptible with your Faceboook account, RS will automatically switch you to Mode 2, which is the previous Revert method, which has some limitations. Mode 2 can not revert the newsfeed to the old desktop version, it reverts the newsfeed to the mobile version, but most of the rest of the site (Business Pages, personal profiles, Groups, Events, Messages, etc should revert to the old desktop design / layout ok.

Sorry, Revert Site is not available for the PaleMoon browser. Please install one of the compatible browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi or any other browser that can run Chrome or Firefox extensions) then come back & you should then be able to install Revert Site.

Another option to get the old design back: If you are a Facebook Page or Group Admin, there might be a switch at the top left of your Page/Group that lets you switch back for 48 hours on the Page/Group admin page. If you are not a Page/Group admin, you could try creating a throwaway group just to see if they give you the switch back option.

Sorry, Revert Site is not available for the Safari browser, please install one of the compatible browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi or any other browser that can run Chrome or Firefox extensions) then come back & you should then be able to install Revert Site.
If you really must use Safari, and you still want the old design, it's possible if you are a Facebook Page or Group Admin, there might be a switch at the top left of the Page/Group admin area that lets you switch back for 48 hours on the Page/Group admin page.

Your browser was not detected to be compatible with Revert Site, please install one of the compatible browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi or any other browser that can run Chrome or Firefox extensions) & then come back and you should then be able to install Revert Site ok.
I also highly recommend my other extension FB Purity, which lets you clean up and customize the new Facebook design.

Many thanks to all the people who support Revert Site by donating, leaving great reviews and by spreading the word, its all highly appreciated!

I also highly recommend you install my other browser extension for Facebook: F.B. Purity which lets you Clean up and Customize the Facebook's design / layout.


How does "Revert Site" work?

Once installed, Revert Site makes Facebook think you are using an older browser, so that it will show you the old Facebook design. From then on any Facebook pages you load will open in the old style Facebook design / layout. (If you have any already open Facebook pages, just reload them to see the change)

Can I easily switch between the Old Facebook design and the New Facebook design?

Yes, it's really simple, by default after installation the Revert option is turned on, but if you want to temporarily turn it off to go back to the New design, just click the "Revert Site" icon Revert Site button icon in your browser's extensions toolbar (which is right next to the Address / URL bar at the top of the browser) and un-tick the checkbox to toggle which version of the Facebook design you want.
Please note: If the Revert Site button is not showing in the extensions toolbar, it may be hidden behind either the "Jigsaw puzzle piece" button: Chrome extension toolbar jigsaw piece button in Chrome/Edge/Brave/Vivaldi etc or the "Overflow" button: Firefox extension toolbar overflow button in Firefox

Will any problems arise from Facebook thinking I'm using an older browser?

General: There may occasionaly be some slight anomalies when using Revert Site, as it is making Facebook think you are using an old out of date browser, so sometimes the functionality of the site may work a bit strangely, but if you find any issues that prevent you from achieving your goal, its simple to temporarily toggle the Revert option off, via the extension button in the browser's extensions toolbar.

Video calls: It may not be possible to make or receive video calls with this extension turned on. However there is an easy workaround, and that is to visit Messenger.com and make and receive your Facebook video calls via that site.
