    Facebook app forcing me to click cont when clicking link


    I know this might be trivial for some, but it is important to me. So thanks in advance for any replies received.

    When I am in the facebook win 8 app, normally when I click on a link it will open the IE snap browser window with the website in it on the right side of my monitor. Now whenever I click a link it is forcing me to click a continue to link button rather than just going to the website.

    Anyone know if this is an app issue or a settings issue? I tried to uninstall and reinstall the FB app from the store, but that didn't change anything.

    Here is a photo of what I am trying to describe.
