The behaviour varies between browsers. On my system:

  • Chrome shows the Facebook widget correctly (i.e. ‘Follow’, ‘Share’ and the number of people following: 4.4K);
  • Edge also shows the widget correctly;
  • So does TOR;
  • Firefox shows a blank column with no widget;
  • Opera (with the built-in VPN) shows a blank box with the top of the Opera “O” symbol;
  • Epic Privacy Browser (which is based on an old fork of Chromium with all the Google elements stripped out) shows a box with a frowning error symbol and the text “www.facebook.com refused to connect”;
  • Chrome in ‘Incognito’ mode shows the same frowning symbol and error message.

It appears that Facebook itself rejects the connection if the browser doesn’t meet certain conditions.
