I can't upgrade my OS, so Chrome stops at 116, thought maybe it was a browser issue.

However, when I open porn mode and enter my FB login/pass, and click on marketplace, it loads everything fine.

So I went back to normal chrome,
disabled all extensions: still won't load
deleted cache: still won't load
deleted individual facebook cookie: still won't load

I don't want to delete all my cookies if I can help it, signing into everything fucking sucks and so many more reset passwords await if I do so. Apart from nuking the cookie folder completely, anyone have any ideas?

Create an alternate user account, then log into FB from there. Same version of Chrome, but with default settings and no cookies. Lets you see if wiping more things would work without the pain.

Why can't you upgrade your OS? With OpenCore Legacy Patcher, I've been able to install Sonoma on a 2009 Mac Pro, and a 2013 MBP. Assuming you have the disk space and RAM, OCLP lets you run up to the latest macOS on most anything from 2008 onwards.

I'm on a 2010 Mac Pro and I heard that when you go past mojave shit starts to get funky. Was planning on running mojave til I retire this thing.

Like I said, in incognito mode, it'll load fine once I login. So that's effectively the same solution.

If you have the disk space, or spare disks (SSDs preferred), try installing later OSes. Start here for Big Sur and later. The OCLP app can download the latest installer from Apple, and create a patched USB installer for the later OS. All you need is spare disk space, and a 16GB or larger blank flash drive.

I recommend trying Monterey to start with. Installing Ventura was fussy in my experience. Also, from Ventura onwards, Apple imported a lot of GUI poison from iOS. In particular, System Prefs became Settings, and works like iPhone Settings. Hint to Apple: Macs do not usually have touchscreens.

The most likely pain you'd run into is Migration Assistant gets funky from Monterey onwards. Sometimes MA will work (especially on initial install), other times it plays stupid games and fails. The solution is to clone your Mojave (or other install) to the target disk first. Then upgrade-in-place.

If it doesn't work out, your Mojave install is completely intact and waiting for you. I always do installs to new volumes, so I can go back painlessly. Not just if the new OS fails to impress, but also to reach older software. Especially games. I can still boot back to Snow Leopard to reach AppleWorks files and PPC games. Or boot back to Mojave for 32-bit apps.
