Facebook Problem

Hi Folks - Facebook seems to be automatically scrolling through pages when opened on my laptop, have I been hacked in some way? It's okay on my phone by the way. Any advice please?

I’ve recently found that when using the FB “watch” facility, the video pages won’t fit the screen properly and either scroll up or down. It’s almost impossible to see the whole video page at times.

Yep, Facebook is broke - apparently in several differing areas.

I haven't experienced the reported problem, but posts are often repeated as I scroll down any selected group, and most times I'm unable to read 'more comments' when I click on the link(s) which should cause that to happen. At other times it's OK.

It happens on other browsers besides my preferred Firefox (on W10).

FB auto scrolling

On my Mac I select my account icon top right, settings & privacy, settings & on the left-hand settings panel select videos & switch off Autoplay Videos
