Facebook just started crashing everytime I tried to open the app on my Samsung S6. I did everything listed here and all other sites by clearing data, tried wiping cache partition, then everyone said do a factory reset. I just thought of one thing, I know messenger is separated from the main app but somehow they are connected. Even though I didnt have trouble opening messenger I cleared its data and facebook app started working again!

Did not work. Same exact thing. When I try and open app, Facebook has stopped. Restart or close app. Neither work.

I have been having this problem for about a year now. The FB app freezes up several times a week and sometimes in one day. I have tried doing what this article says and it temporarily makes the problem go away but it is not a permanent solution....

I have been having this problem for about a year now. The FB app freezes up several times a week and sometimes in one day. I have tried doing what this article says and it temporarily makes the problem go away but it is not a permanent solution. Is there a permanent fix for this problem. It really sucks that Samsung, Google, and Facebook have all the tech and money in the world but they can't provide an app that works correctly??

It seems like I need to go through clearing my cache everything I use the app. This seems unreasonable. Is there a permanent fix?
