We show that if $\psi$ is an $f$-biharmonic map from a compact Riemannian manifold into a Riemannian manifold with non-positive curvature satisfying a condition, then $\psi$ is an $f$-harmonic map. We prove that if the $f$-tension field $\tau_f(\psi)$ of a map $\psi$ of Riemannian manifolds is a Jacobi field and $\phi$ is a totally geodesic map of Riemannian manifolds, then $\tau_f( \phi\circ \psi)$ is a Jacobi field. We finally investigate the stress $f$-bienergy tensor, and relate the divergence of the stress $f$-bienergy of a map $\psi$ of Riemannian manifolds with the Jacobi field of the $\tau_f (\psi)$ of the map.
