Bug Description

The Ubuntu WebView component comes preloaded with a user script that removes the app banner that facebook displays on its login page to advertise its native android application (see http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~phablet-team/webbrowser-app/trunk/view/head:/src/Ubuntu/Web/fb-no-appbanner.js).

Facebook changed recently their login page layout, and the script stopped working. The banner used to be enclosed in a div with class "appBanner", which made it easy to detect and suppress. It no longer has this class, here is what the code looks like now:

  <div class="_4fmw grouped aclb">
    <a class="touchableArea first last area touchable acy apl abt abb" href="https://m.facebook.com/click.php?redir_url=market%3A%2F%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dcom.facebook.katana&amp;app_id=350685531728&amp;cref=mb&amp;no_fw=1&amp;refid=8" target="_top" data-sigil="touchable marea">
      <div class="ib">
        <i class="l img sp_L9H7wTVnopj sx_a37e0f"></i>
        <div class="c">
          <span class="fcl">Get Facebook for Android and browse faster.</span>
