Sure! Free software allows you to do that! :-)

As much as I'm searching for it I couldn't find it from the interface
of the official Mozilla Firefox build. :-\

However, after asking the Firefox Dev it appears you can enable it by
going on a Facebook page: 
You would click the "turn on" button to get it on.

This will work with the official Firefox build but not IceCat, even when
LibreJS is off.

Nevertheless you can find the code in the following folder:


One of the developers did point out to me that the point is actually to
enhance privacy while using social media:

The FB stuff loads in a sidebar tab etc, as opposed to the "like"
buttons on pages which leaks information. There's also a like button in
the address bar, which is only triggered on click. So their overall goal
is to provide more privacy. Just thought it was worse mentioning. 

The SM site needs to support it, but maybe it would be worth modifying
some of the code and make it work with identi.ca, if they would be
willing to support it?
