5 ways to disable Facebook Lite & Switch to normal Facebook


facebook-small-logoFacebook Lite was launched a while ago to allow faster surfing of Facebook on slow internet connection. Some users have reported problems using this lite version of Facebook. Most common being automatic login into lite version of Facebook instead of normal version. Following are few ways to disable automatic login into Facebook Lite:

UPDATE – Official way to switch between Facebook Lite & Regular

1. Manual Change of Facebook URL

After login, if URL is http://lite.facebook.com/ – remove word lite and try to access http://facebook.com for the normal version of Facebook.

2. Change Privacy Settings

While in Facebook Lite version: Click Settings, then click on Profile or Friendship link. You will get new screen to click on link that will redirect you to normal Facebook version.

3. Change Facebook Language

While in Facebook Lite version: Click Settings, and then click Language option. Chose language other than English and you will be automatically re-directed to normal version of Facebook with different language. Note: Facebook Lite only works in English language.

4. Clear Internet & browser history

You can manually clear internet and browsing history. Alternatively, you can use free software like Wipe to clean all the temporary data on the computer.

5 Flush DNS on the computer

Lastly, you can try flushing DNS cache on the computer and attempt to load normal Facebook. Click Start > Run and then type cmd in run box & click OK. In the black window, type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Then type ipconfig /registerdns and press enter.

Either of above way should fix Facebook Lite issue. If you know any other way to check on this issue, feel free to share with us by adding a comment.

    1)goto settings in your facebook(fb)lite.

    3)click on the ‘normal facebook site’ below.

  81. None of the options work. It seems to be possessed. Would stop using facebook. I hate when websites force you do stuff..Hate Lite.

    here is a solution to go back to default facebook.
    On your face book lite page ..click on ‘Feedback’ at the bottom of the page. Just above the comment box, there is an option to move back to regular facebook
    like this….
    [Looking to get back to the regular Facebook? (Just click here)] buttonn.. click it
    & enjoy ur regular facebook

  87. karan arora says

    hey just go to settings there u will get option default site click that and select the option regular facebook and u will again enjoy regular facebook

  88. the easiest solution is:
    go to settings.then click on the default site option which u can find under the account option.
    d following q will then appear:
    when i go to facebook.com,show me:
    option 1:regular facebook option 2:facebook lite
    select option 1
    and click on save…thts it!!!..:)

  89. Yew can do it very easily…just go to your setting on ur facebook lite an there u ill have an option to switch for Facebook normal..!!!!!!!!!!

  90. guys,forget all these HI-TECH solutions
    d best solution for dumb people like me is when in facebook lite,click on settings
    den click on default site
    highlight the option regular facebook
    save it

    restart u r browser

    done,dats it
    worked wid my account
    trust me dis is d simplest way
    and for d URL solution and all d 5 solutions,none of dem work
    try my solution
    its d best of all

  91. Best thing just use another browser temp. till they fix all the damn issues on FB “light” – its so light that nothing works the way it used to!!!

  92. Just use another browser!

    then it asks if you’d like to give feedback for Facebook Lite, it also gives you an option to change back to Regular Facebook :)

  102. Hey guy u can deactivate ur account and reactivate tru ur email

  103. I just dunno who the son of ditch created this fking idea of lite, If there was a lite edition, there should have been a option given to switch back, i Guess that this son of a ditches are running out of bandwidth, or some geek has hack into there setup. Anyways ive already lost interest on this fuckbook social networking site, i feel fuckbook moderators look into comments here. Give out an answer.

  104. Well, I also tried all the tips and they didn’t help. Nor did the one on clicking on my name!! Everything brings me back to the sickening Lite. I’ve sent a couple of complaints to Facebook — why aren’t they reverting those who’re complaining to the regular interface?

  105. i did try the laguage change option..but after dat i am nt able 2 log in into my accnct….

    • Hello,
      To solve this, U can go to “help” option from there click on any link inside any question.It will show u a screen where it will say that this is not available on lite version and u get a chance to login. try it out…
