    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. Facebook indeed is not providing better quality image sources to IE11, but it is providing same level of quality images to Edge. Facebook makes their own decisions on what images to provide to each client and we have no control over it. Currently, we do have a fix for this problem, and we recommend using Edge.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
