Pop up message of xd_proxy.css, facebook issue!

Last week, a large amount of customers complained they were getting the following pop up message almost in every single website using IE:


Then a notepad opens up with the following information:

.app_content_51546247891 a.uiLinkSubtle { display: none; }
.app_content_51546247891 a.UIImageBlock_ICON_Image { display: none; }

#bootloader_Zvucx { height: 42px; }

After further investigation, it was proved to be a facebook script issue. This error was also ovbsered in Firefox, Safari and Chrome, not just IE.

You can refer to http://bugs.developers.facebook.net/show_bug.cgi?id=14971

It seems to affect every single website that uses social plugins for Facebook.

    This XD proxy issue has effectively killed the Facebook games.  I try to send gifts or requests to friends, and the friend list is BLANK.  I checked all my stuff. Still blank. I blocked and unblocked xd proxy. Blank and blank. So, I'm leaving it blocked until such time as Facebook figures out the problem.

    fyi: Using Firefox 4, Vista.

    I have tried the solution you sugested above but to no avail. It is quite hard to get rid off. I am playing Cityville and the reward section does not show this problem. I am using IE 9, Windows 7. I even tried using Chrome but with the same result. Has anybody got a working solution?

    Yepper. and a simple one. i just uninstalled firefox then reinstalled it. no more xd proxy window, at least for now. lol. a lot more simpler to me then doing all the internet settings, options, cookies, caches, blahs, blahs, and more blahs. hope this helps.

    I've been trying to post an ad on Facebook Marketplace and get the same error message.

    I'm using Chrome.

    I'll try to use CC Cleaner and retry.

    What a pain!

    I uninstaller Chrome. I uninstalled Mozilla Foxfire and reinstalled it. I am still getting the pop-up . It is very frustrating. I can not seem to get read of it no matter what I do. Any suggestions?

    i am having the same issue in opera and firefox. the xd server window opwns and opens- i go into a loop of some sort playing farmville. i can't get anything to work normally/

    clearning cache doesn't work.

    I have tried IE-and no problem, except that IE sucks and is too slow for Farmville. Id rather use Firefox-But the xd Proxy deal is very annoying and effects my games to the point of "not returning to facebook" It even effects my Typing on my wall Or sharing with others on their wall.

     I have tried the fix above-Deleting cookies and such-I have tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it-I have tried Google Chrome-none of these fixes are getting rid of the XD Proxy in Firefox-And alot of people are posting over the internet-about writing css/html codings to fix this..some people dont understand that type of fixes. We shouldnt have to re-write codes for websites to fix the websites problems-And facebook help section really sucks-they never reply and its to confusing to some people to find their way around the site or forum. I need a simple fix-or a easier way to contact facebook…thanks.
