Once again, Facbook has “helpfully” added a new “feature” – this time it’s a pop-up window showing you new comments that are posted to something that you posted on your timeline. Here’s how to get rid of it.
Now, you might think that the way to get rid of the comment pop-up window would be to click on the “hide this tab” option that you get if you click on the settings (gear) icon in that window.
But, you would be wrong. That only hides that tab for comments on that post.

If what you want is an option to stop them from happening at all, here’s what you need to do:
How to Get Rid of the ‘New Comment on Your Post’ Pop-Up Windows (Tabs) on Facebook
Go to Facebook in your web browser. Once there, look for the gear icon that is associated with the chat feature. It will be in the lower right-hand corner of your screen.
Click on that gear icon, and click on ‘Turn Off Post Tabs’.
You’ll know you were successful when you see that option changed to ‘Turn On Post Tabs’.
Now those annoying comment pop-ups will never darken your screen again, at least until Facebook ‘helpfully’ turns them back on for you. But at least now you know how to turn them back off again.
