Is there a way to automatically expand all "older posts" on a Facebook wall at once? I'm using Firefox if it matters.

As you are using Firefox you can install the Better Facebook! Firefox Add-on.

Firefox Add-on Link

The add-on provides numerous features/enhancements. One of these being

Automatically click "Older Posts" link on the home page [x] times to get more posts

This should provide you with the functionality that your require.

You can actually install this on Firefox, Chrome, Safari & Opera. The website for further information can be found here

You can also run this script in the console.

And as of 30/04/2013, the id has changed. The valid code is now:

//Run this on the person's facebook profile page to expand the wall
var INTERVAL=2000; // Time between wall expansions, in milliseconds
var MAX_TRIES=150; // How many times to try expanding the wall

function expand(){
var foo=document.getElementById('pagelet_group_pager').children[0].children[0].children[0].children[0].onclick;
if (typeof(foo)!='undefined'){
for (var i = 1; i < MAX_TRIES; i++){

Facebook has gone through a number of iterations since 2011. Does this script have a chance of still being relevant? – Al E. Sep 1 '15 at 23:13
