Re: edge

For the person having trouble locating Groups, do not use the same
website you used in Internet Explorer. Type the following and you will
be able to have a similar experience as you did in IE:
mbasic.Facebook.com

You can use this in either Chrome or Edge and it works just fine.

And, right there, you have your answer.  Many, many sites will not even
allow entry with IE these days.  Others, and it looks like FB is one of
them, will allow entry but when any link is triggered will force the use of
a more secure browser maintained to current standards.

I avoid FB like the plague, so I really can't help you there.  But FB has to
work in all the major browsers, so what you're looking for but have been
unable to access still has to be there somewhere.
