When I click some shared links in the Facebook app and Chrome opens, I get:

Please be careful for safety and privacy of your Facebook account, remember...

and when I try to click on Continue, I get:

The page you requested cannot be found


So how can I disable this annoying thing so the links open directly? It did before I started using Chrome and was using the default Android browser and each time I clicked a link there was no warning.

    I don't have an answer to disable it - however it is part of Facebook's website; so I'm not sure you can disable it. You can see in the url the php?u=http part. Facebook is passed your URL and is just warning you. When it fails it's just Facebook failing. I used to have to try 3-4 times, both in Chrome and the Android browser before it would work. – Dylan Yaga Jul 2 '13 at 14:06
  • it's interesting that on the stock browser it opened the link without any warning... then I selected to always open in Chrome and I got this.. don't know how to go back to the stock browser and I don't even want to.. would like this to work in Chrome.. I get that the FB generates that link, but don't know why it worked before.. and how to fix it now. thank you – davidhq Jul 2 '13 at 14:29

The solution: I just had to be signed into Facebook in Chrome.
