Lose Facebook's Timeline with TimeLine Remove

Revert to the old Facebook layout with this Firefox extension.

We happen to like Facebook's Timeline feature, but we know firsthand that there are plenty of people who don't. TimeLine Remove is a Firefox extension that can make both your own and other people's profiles appear in the old, pre-Timeline style. We think it's a good choice if you find yourself unable to get used to the new two-column layout.

TimeLine Remove installed easily and was ready to go without a browser restart. We went to Facebook and found that the extension worked as promised; we checked both our own profile and those of several other people and found that the Timeline had been replaced by the old-style layout. Strangely, it did seem that many of the photos that our friends had posted appeared slightly blurry in our newsfeed; we're not sure if this can be attributed to TimeLine Remove or not, but the images displayed without issues when we clicked to enlarge them. Overall, we found TimeLine Remove to more or less be exactly like using Facebook before the Timeline was introduced. It's a sure thing that Facebook will continue to evolve, and it's probably a good idea for you to get used to it. But if you're just not quite ready yet, TimeLine Remove is a good way to hang on to the Facebook of yore for just a little bit longer.

TimeLine Remove installs and uninstalls without issues.
