Facebook new advanced profile timeline. Many of the users would like to remove and deactivate the Facebook new timeline features.Al through the new profile layout offers new and interesting features, some users on Facebook have found it is really complicated to use the new advanced profile layout timeline. Now as Facebook has rolled out its new timeline profile weeks ago. So now everyone will have to use it.

So, lets come to our point that how you will able to deactivate it right ? Facebook has not left any option for you so that you will able to use the old version or switch to the old profile. But using a different kind of trick you can do that. In our later article we have explained how you will able to disable the timeline by deleting the app. But this won't work anymore. A new trick comes out and you can simply use it and use the old Facebook layout.

So, what is the new trick ? apparently Facebook timeline has a problem dealing with old web browsers, and most specific Internet Explorer 7, it means if you are using internet explorer 7 to login to your Facebook you won't see the timeline because you will be switched to old profile. So, if we can find a way to tell Facebook that we are using internet explorer 7 browser agent, automatically without modifying anything in your profile or disable anything, you will have access back again to your classic old profile.

But, how we will able to do that right ? and we also don't like to use old browser as well, because new browsers are secure and with more function. So, we need to stay with our browser the current browser we are using for me Mozilla Firefox, but we have to let Facebook know that we are using Internet Explorer 7.

So, the trick is without using old dated browser we will change our user-agent and able go back to our old profile.

Please before you continue to read this aritcle i would like to be specific that this is just a workaround, i can not sure you that how long this trick will going to work. As we still couldn't find any solution we just made a trick so that without disable the timeline we will able to use the old profile.

So, here i am going to share three ways in which you can do this, so just chose whatever is easier for you.My recommendation would be using Safari because that will be more easier to do.

How to disable Facebook Timeline on Google Chrome

Using Google Chrome can be a little bit challenging for some users, but it is not impossible.
If you are not willing to manually go back and forth with this method, I would recommend you to first manually create a Google Chrome profile and use it just to access Facebook.

Step 1: Go to Start, windows start button, do a search for Chrome and from the results right-click Google Chrome and select Properties.
Step 2: In the Target field, append the following at the end of the path that is already there (add a space between chrome.exe and the following line):
For Windows Vista and 7

--user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)"

For Windows XP users

--user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1)"
After you append the above line the Target field should look something like this:
--user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)"
Step 3: When you finish, click Apply and then click OK.
Step 4: Restart Google Chrome and log-in to your Facebook account and the old profile should be there.
How to disable Facebook Timeline on Internet Explorer 7
well for internet explorer 7 there is no trick, because you if you login to Facebook using internet explorer 7 you will be automatically redirect to old facebook profile.

Warning:  There is a chance that your Facebook profile may not display 100% correctly, but it still works and it is worth trying.
