Can anything be done in Ubuntu to Help with this?

Asked by Snooper on 2017-12-02

Is there anything that can be done in Ubuntu Linux which would allow us to be able to access and utilize the Facebook web site (using the default Firefox Browser) Without Facebook intentionally Destroying yet Another Hard Drive? What I have observed is this, (with Yet another Brand New Hard Drive and Ubuntu Linux Install). – you log into Facebook and scroll down their News Feed page for about half an hour or so. Then when you have finished doing this, you attempt to get back to the top of the page using the ‘Home’ key, or just attempt to reload their News Feed web page – It is at this point that you can physically hear Facebook Slamming your Hard Drives Read Head Armature against the Side of the Hard Drive’s casing. I cannot reproduce this Hard Drive Armature Slamming on any other Web Site or Web Page Other Than Facebook Itself.

Accessing a particular website doesn't destroy hardware. There are checks in place in the kernel to protect hardware from damage. Do you have the latest BIOS?

Can you help with this problem?
