Facebook Browser and Saving Images

The Photo App does not work in Facebook’s default browser. You will be able to edit your photo, but when trying to save and download, you will receive a “Page can’t be loaded” error.

Disable Facebook In-App Browser

By default, Facebook for Android opens the link in the in-app browser.

If you want to open the link in your default browser instead of the in-app browser, then you need to disable Facebook in-app browser and here are the steps:

  • ​Open the Facebook app.
  • ​Tap Hamburger icon at the top.
  • ​Hit Settings & Privacy > Settings > Media and Contacts.
  • ​Now, you can see “Links open externally” option. Tap on it.

That’s it. The Facebook in-app browser is disabled successfully, and from now on, the link will be opened in your default browser.

In case, if you want to enable Facebook in-app browser, follow the above steps.
