    This keeps popping up in my status bar, and it doesn't go away. It appears as if facebook is updating or downloading something. Restarting the phone does nothing. What is this?

    Everyone seems to suffer from this annoying problem.
    I have found a solution:
    keep pressing on it till you get "App info", then force stop it and clear date.

    This worked for me and hope it works for you guys.

    I use Galaxy S(I9000). I also suffered with the same problem since this morning. Tried to stop the update process in many ways which are not successful. @ last stopped it by going to Menu --> Downloads --> Other downloads and there selectd the particular download and cancled it.

    I was having the same issues on my HTC Thunderbolt. I was able to get rid of mine by going into my apps and finding the App called Downloads. It showed that the Facebook (build 140579) was In Progress of downloading. So I killed it to see if this would work. I restarted my phone and it still hasn't popped up. I checked to see if it was in Downloads, and there is nothing there.

    Prior to figuring that out I had originally tried to force stop the Download Manager. That worked, however when I restarted my phone it would pop right back up and say that it was downloading again.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SII and cannot get this to quit! It's not showing up in my downloads, when I try clicking on it in my active applications it just brings me to my home page and I disabled FB (which is not showing anywhere on my phone but I'm unable to enable in Play Store). PLEASE HELP!

    Are you opening up the program from the All Apps menu as if you were opening up another program like Angry Birds?

    Did you try opening up the Download App and removing it from there?

    I had the same issue so I know how annoying this thing is. It sounds like you are looking under my apps or downloads in the Settings menu, is this correct?

    I've decided to add some screenshots to help out since I understand that looks for the Download app can be confusing.

    Below is a screenshot of my home screen and what I need to click to get to all of my apps. There should be something similar on whatever phone/tablet you are using.


    This is a screenshot of the app that you are looking for:


    When you open up the Downloads app you should see Facebook (build 140579). On my phone I had to hold down on it and drag it to a trash can. Once I removed this it took care of the issue.

    I just added some screenshots that give a little bit more detail on where to look. You won't find them under the Settings menu. You'll need to go under the Apps menu.

    Same problem on my DNA but with a different build number. I updated facebook, hoping that will solve the issue permanently as I had the notification return three times after canceling the download.

    Same problem here, Samsung Fascinate 2.3.4 firmware, I tried uninstalling/reinstalling Facebook but that only creates an additional buggy download, I have 5 queued up now.
    I don't have the Downloads app, and I don't have anything under Internet > Menu > Downloads. I also tried downloading 2 different download managers but the Build 140579 doesn't show up in them.

    Please help ; ;
