Safari in Monterey Facebook Issue

Hey crew. I know this is going to sound odd but I don’t know how else to explain it. I recently loaded up the beta for Monterey. When I look at my Facebook profile in Safari and scroll toward the bottom, a footer of another website pops up and if I continue to scroll, it takes me to this other page. It’s not a page I have purposely visited recently. Is there some kind of new navigation feature in the new version of Safari that I am missing? Thanks for any help you can give. I’d like to get rid of this happening. Thanks again!

This happens in Safari 14 on Big Sur when you’re on a web page that’s in Reading List. Once you reach the bottom, you see a bar appear across the bottom of the page that is the next link in Reading List. Keep scrolling and that page will load.

Maybe that’s what you’re seeing?

Maybe but I’m not in reader mode. I’m also having an issue with Safari not opening websites after waking from sleep.

This has nothing to do with Reader mode — I know, confusing names! Reading List is a sidebar feature:

As it says in the link above: “Read the next page in your list: Keep scrolling when you reach the end of a Reading List page—no need to click the next page summary in the sidebar.”

When Safari refuses to open a web site, is this behavior just Safari or does your entire Mac lose it’s connection to the internet?

Seems to be when I open back up after being offline for a bit.

Also: The reading list has now been cleared and it seems like that problem is fixed. I guess it’s not a problem but it doesn’t fit the way I use Safari. All good on that front now.


I think I am having similar safari web page opening issues to you. Have replied in a different thread
