    I've been having this problem for a while where if I'm viewing a photo in the Facebook app that was taken in landscape mode, it won't rotate when I hold my phone sideways (in landscape mode). It's very strange, and I've never seen this behaviour with any other photos.

    The odd thing is, if I am already holding my phone sideways and using the app in landscape mode, it works fine for normal navigation, but as soon as I go into my photos section it rotates back to portrait mode by itself and shows everything sideways. Very odd!

    It's not that way with all photos in the app though. For some reason, when I view photos on my timeline, those will rotate to show in landscape view. Those are the only ones though. It's almost as if they designed it that way, but that makes no sense.

    Anyone else have this problem and/or know of a solution?

    I have the latest version of the app as of July 3, 2015 (, and am using a Moto X 2nd gen with Android 5.1.

    It happens with every image, so I don't think it's a problem with the image. Also, I'm not uploading smaller images.

    I had to go into Settings, Accessability, and turn auto-rotation on after updating to L... At least this fixed the issue for me on my Moto X 2nd gen.
