    That's scary if they have the same url, I am only using the Firefox Developer Version and it does not behave the way you described it.

    I solved the problem. I've waited to long to update Firefox a couple of times, so newer versions couldn't properly overwrite older versions because they were too old. New versions of FireFox can only properly overwrite 1 or 2 versions behind.

    I uninstalled FireFox, then removed all junk left behind in folders and the registry, and installed the newest version. Problem solved.

    Facebook seems to have issues with rendering it's homepage. Should've figured this was problem on their side since they also have issues where their video player fails.
