I've used both, IOS and PC versions. Sometimes I have to use my Bluetooth keyboard to send a bill to a client using my iPhone and to switch to my PC just to use Facebook is far to cumbersome.

It's probably quite significant -- one is a mobile app experience, the other is a website experience, though stripped down heavily from the regular site with very static content.

I never did bother to download Facebook on my phone, though I do use it from my pCs plenty.

What is the difference between mobile and basic FB?

I usually use the mobile FB app on my phone and sometimes I use the regular FB website with JAWS on my laptop.

Madison, I use the mobile version. I can't be bothered with all that fluff on the basic site.

Ah.
Well, just try typing in text you think may be in your comment. I don't really know there's anything else to suggest, besides accessing Facebook a different way. Even then, the search results may be equally unsatisfying.

Hallo Madison.
Are you using the regular facebook site?

The search function there might be superior, but I don't know.
If you use mbasic, I'm dubious about success -- you could try searching for relevant text in the search box and see if anything coems up. It might.
Facebook really isn't as good as the old (well, some of them are still
around) message boards/forums as far as locating threads and messages goes.
It's a serious downgrade...

Hi all,
Does anyone know if there's any way to search for a specific reply/comment to something that I posted back at the end of October 2020? I posted this to a few different groups and I don't remember which one this comment/reply was posted too, nor do I remember the responder's name. I know I could go through old posts, but there's been a lot of posts on these groups since so it'd take me forever, so it'd be really grate if I could just search for the specific thing that I'm looking for. Using latest Jaws, Windows 10 and firefox. Thanks Madison
