it looks like the ShareThis script is taking over or something! the facebook share button and tweet button no longer work. if i click on the facebook share button, share this pops up and asks for access to my facebook account. I DO NOT WANT TO USE SHARETHIS! I DO NOT WANT THEM TRACKING ME! I DO NOT WANT THEM HAVING ACCESS TO MY FACEBOOK!

I'm not understanding the problem here.

From the first part of your post, it sounds like you want to use the share button but are mad that it wants access to Facebook/Twitter?

If you don't, just ignore the button and don't click it. It doesn't track you if you don't click the button.

i did not click on the green ShareThis button. never. not ever.
the problem was when i would click on the blue facebook share button it would act as if i clicked the green share this button. after trying a few things and not being able to figure it out, i figured it was intentional until i tried it in chrome. i posted this thread last night figuring it might be a broken script or sharethis being malicious.

i found i was unable to log in today using firefox (chrome worked) so i looked to the fourms to fix that. that told me to delete cookies. doing this fixed my problems with the share button as well.

this just goes to show you regularly clear out those cookies!

clearing cookies does not fix the Share This issue in Fire Fox. The idiot thing is checked by default. I wish they would just get rid of it altogether.
