    I was having the same problem but have found a solution that is working for me. I have been using the iPad web browser Puffin and have not had any more crashing issues since. I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it has been for me. Good luck!

    I tried it! I tried it!  I did a quick check - went on a friend's wall and shared a picture directly from my news feed, and . . . NO CRASH!!!  The scroll down is a little delicate - one of the top banner/bars shows often in the middle of the page and the page seems to quickly re-load often, but no crash as of yet.  I hope it lasts!  Yay!  Thank you for the suggestion!

    That's so good to hear! I know the banner thing can be a little annoying but all in all its much better than the constant crashing. Glad it worked for you too! Yay! :)

    My son has a Galaxy Tab 10.1., but he much prefers my original iPad 1 and my latest iPad 4. The Galaxy Tab never crashes on the Facebook website. My iPad 1 has been crashing on the FB page since ios 5 came out. The iPad 4 crashes a least as often as the iPad 1. I could see the iPad one running out or memory, but the iPad 4? Gimme a break. IOS should be able to handle memory better than that.

    Mine 3 crashed on facebook before and after the upgrade. The 4 has crashed constantly. Because of this forum I started using Puffin for facebook and even with its quirkiness it does not crash.

    i am having the exact same problem, but also on my macbook pro, retina, which does NOT use IOS6 obviously

    Me too with this problem - but only since about mid-Nov I think? Very frustrating. I might take my iPad into my Applestore and see what they say about this. And it crashes without fail

    so I'll easily be able to show them the problem. Will report back if I have any luck.

    Just read some comments I'd missed - I'll follow some of these suggestions before I go to Apple. hopefully there's a fix in the pipeline somewhere.

    I tried this puffin browser and for me it also crashed. It also had a messed up page view, with sliced images and the Facebook info bar hovering around the centre of the page. In short, puffin was even worse than safari with Facebook. I also tried disabling JavaScript... This brought up a message from Facebook at the top of the page saying "for best results enable java or get the latest Facebook mobile app".


    So I'm thinking now that Facebook is deliberately messing up ipad browsers to force us into using their mobile app. I have installed and checked, then removed about five browsers now, including puffin, opera, chrome, mercury. How they can get away with this is beyond me. Why are apple allowing this to continue? It's like Facebook is hijacking our browsing experience and our iPads.


    The other question is why does fb want us to use their app so badly? I can only assume its because they want to collect our information.

  • jbland Level 1 (0 points)

    The only thing is, for me the facebook app crashes as much as Safari.

  • Ray Gibson Level 1 (15 points)

    Danitza, I don't think this issue has anything to do with busy news feeds. It seems to happen on most pages but especially pages other than your own Facebook page. My guess is that it's fb trying to force people to use their mobile app, although this also crashes. Six browsers and counting... They all crash with fb on iPad

    Interesting.  My iPad crashes with low memory,  I talked to apple 3-4 times and they even swapped out my iPad for it.   I talked to apple L2 and he acted like he never heard of it.   His only suggestion was to us the app.   I did try pufffin and it didn't crash, but don't really like it.    I have tried chrome and it crashes also.


    Apple needs to come up with an official stance on this, they just wasted my time with a known issue.

    i bought an ipad 3 with ios6 about a month ago. facebook with safari worked great until 3 days ago. now i can only post to 1 or 2 posts at the top of the news feed. and the posts of other people are sometimes messed up. the words are crammed into a skinny column to the right of the box, making it really long with a lot of blank space. i refuse to use the app (which doesnt work well, either), so i will post on a computer.

  • Cathy Clapper Level 1 (35 points)

    and just for the heck of it, i just tried facebook thru the browser on my galaxy tab 7", which i have only been using the past two months as mostly a wifi hotspot. fb doesnt work there either and ive used that before i got the ipad all the time for two years and it has worked. i am going to go with the theory that they want tablet users to use the app, which i will not. i am not that addicted.

  • srosenstok Level 1 (15 points)

    Facebook began crashing my original iPad a couple months ago but it's deteriorated even further over the past few days. First it was whenever I opened a window to view a photo. Then a couple days ago I couldn't Like, now I can't even comment because the keypad doesn't come up. Using Chrome is no better and the Facebook app crashes on launch. I did notice Facebook has added a few new features this week, like number of views, so I suspect it's more a Facebook issue than any particular browser.
