Facebook Issue - Can't Open Videos and Photos
Using the stock ICS browser and also ICS Browser+, generally in desktop mode, I'm having a lot of issues lately with playing videos that are linked on Facebook. For example, if a youtube video is posted, you can normally play it by tapping on the thumbnail, after which it expands into a video window for playback. For me the thumbnail simply flickers blue for a second, then nothing. I can't even tap on the title (which normally has a hyperlink) to open it, or long press to open or open in a new tab, nothing works. If I long press on the link address itself it will allow me to copy it, but it doesn't respond as if it's a link.
Is anyone else having these issues? I'm also having trouble with a lot of photos. If I tap to open a photo, generally nothing happens. Occasionally it'll work on one photo, then the next won't. I've rebooted, cold booted with power + Vol Up, flushed the cache, changed the user agent, but nothing helps. Dolphin works just fine, but I don't like it due to its instability. Is this just due to Facebook being so ridiculously bloated, or is it an issue not isolated to my Xoom? My next step is to reload it from Titanium, but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this.

I am also having lots of troubles starting today. Only Facebook though. They must have done something to the site.
