Just another bunch of stuff pouring out of some guy's head

Hide “related” articles on Facebook

Facebook has (not that) recently added the “related” articles feature which displays extra links beneath a News Feed story when you click a link in that story.

I can’t stand it as it changes the length of the page and makes me lose where I was in the page.

Disable this behaviour with Adblock by adding these filters:
www.facebook.com##DIV[data-ownerid^="u_jsonp"]
www.facebook.com##DIV[data-ownerid^="u_ps"]

Add the filter in the "manually edit filters" textbox.

Brilliant, if this works. I hate the “related articles” feature with a passion. I hate being served up slop that I didn’t order. Facebook is going to lose on this one, big time, as it descends into oblivion. At least off an option to turn this crap off!

It works but is a bit heavy handed as it nukes a few other functions on most pages. Notably, some other drop-down menus stop working. I will refine the rules at some pont and update this post accordingly.
