Let G be a compact nonmetrizable topological group whose local weight b (G) has uncountable cofinality. Let H be an amenable locally compact group, A (G × H) the Fourier algebra of G × H, and UC2 (G × H) the space of uniformly continuous functionals in VN (G × H) = A (G × H)*. We use weak factorization of operators in the group von Neumann algebra VN (G × H) to prove that there exist at least 22b (G) left ideals of dimensions at least 22b (G) in A (G × H)* * and in UC2 (G × H)*. We show that every nontrivial right ideal in A (G × H)* * and in UC2 (G × H)* has dimension at least 22b (G).
