    There seems to be some sort of glitch in loading at times. Are you using Google Chrome?

    I don't know about others, but this thread is confusing.
    "I am using Google. I downloaded chrome and still would not load.".

    "I am using fire fox and google".

    Might I suggest you use Firefox & go to Tools>Options>Advanced>Click the Network Tab & make sure NO PROXY is checked. Now try going to https://www.facebook.com/ & see if you can get in.

    Do you have problems accessing other websites?

    If you use another computer do you get this same issue? If you use Chrome and login to Chrome on your account through Chrome (google) somewhere your profile gets save. I only seen what you get sometimes.

    Go into the browser and remove all cookies for Facebook. Delete them.

    Are you on Windows? If so which OS version.

    Well, I'm stumped. I've never had a problem accessing facebook with google chrome or any other browser I use. Maybe
    jobeard can help. Or someone.

    got to be tolerant; google can be google.com (a site) or
    google chrome (a browser) :giggle:

    FB Pictures frequently come from other sites; eg
    • xxxx.fbcdn.net
    • xxx.akamaihd.net
    so firewalls, hosts file & A/V filters can be involved here

    try this sequence - - I suspect your DNS is being filtered:

    • get a command prompt (run->cmd) and enter
    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • net stop "dns client"

    now try accessing facebook​
    Awesome thanks that worked​

    You got the highest minds working on this issue and still not being solved. To me something else is going on there. We can only give advice. If the PC is worn out or too old might consider replacing it. XP was quick loading pages also.

    See if Facebook loads. If I can find the old tipstir network tools you can use that on XP.

    This is old but you can use it on your XP...

    Found the 28 Tipstir's Network Tools Collection. Some files don't even exist anymore.
