Methods to prevent Facebook comments from opening in a new tab

Below we have explained a few methods that will help you prevent Facebook comments from opening in a new tab.

Use Facebook’s mobile site

Facebook’s mobile site doesn’t open comments in a new window by default, which can be more convenient for some users. Simply visit m.facebook.com on your web browser instead of www.facebook.com. Obviously, the look of the site will be a bit different but it’s a good and easy method to prevent Facebook comments from opening in a new window.


Use the Facebook mobile app

You can use the Facebook mobile app to prevent comments from opening in a new window. The Facebook app allows you to navigate comments within the main app window. Facebook comments don’t pop up in a new window when you are using the Facebook mobile app.


Use another browser

It appears that the Brave browser does not seem to have any vulnerability to the pop-out comment issue. Brave is specifically designed to block ads and trackers, and it seems that the code they use for that purpose also prevents the comments from popping out. Brave is accessible for both Mac and Windows operating systems.
