Q: every website works besides facebook. facebook wont open

hello all,
ive been experiencing this issue for a few days now. www.facebook.com will not load. the only way it seems to load is if i clear cache and it is VERY limited almost useless. i've tried everything i could get my hands on i primarily use google chrome but this seems to be the problem on all browsers. opera,firefox,internet explorer,safari. i've tried https://www.facebook.com, checked host file, ran malwarebytes and cleared any malware, hijackthis, flushed dns, reset router etc but nothing seems to be the fix. even using a proxy site wont allow me to sign in it gets me to the home page but then cookies gets in the way. i'm almost certain it's nothing to do with the internet provider or modem/router because the internet seems to be running smooth, even other computers in the house are not experiencing this problem with facebook or any other site and they are connected to the same router. any help will be much appreciated.

Preferred Solution: every website works besides facebook. facebook wont open

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I dont know whats causing this but my girlfriend hasnt been able to get onto FACEBOOK for a while - so I tried and I couldnt get on,

Ive tried both accounts on the computer and no joy, I have deleted the HOST file as this caused problems before and still no joy

Sometimes we can get onto the site but cant log-in...???

I run XP Pro,

Firefox and IE7

my sister says she can log on no problems so its not the website
 

A:FACEBOOK - Wont load/open/Login

Hi there,
I assume this is constant in both firefox and IE? Has this only begun recently or have you got a new router/modem recently? What happens when you try to open the page? Does it go white and look like it may load? Then time out? It sounds like your security or firewall may be blocking the site. Have you tried resetting internet explorer settings to defaults? Also uninstall and reinstall internet explorer. Let me know how it goes

Hey All,

I went to TWC's Facebook page, which is just loaded with videos and ads that clogged up my computer speed so much in Firefox that I had to reboot my computer. What can be done to tell companies to do something about Facebook's Timeline, so that the videos don't show? Or at least the process gets speeded up? The problem in general with Timeline is that everything on the page loads at once, and the videos really slow up the experience. I have the My WOT and Ad Block Plus Plug in for Firefox. From a design standpoint, what does TWC need to do to re-design their Facebook page, so that Timeline does not slow people's computers down to a crawl?

RELEVANCY SCORE 76.8

Hey everyone. I have a problem with my IE crashing anytime i get on Facebook. Most of the time when i move my curser over the tabs on the top, you get a drop down box. But these boxes never go away. When you close out the windows it tells me my IE stopped working. Or sometimes when clicking on something the box will come up saying windows has stopped. The window will not freeze, but is always operational until the box comes up telling you windows has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Facebook seems to be the only problem. I use Vista Ultimate 64.

I run no addons in IE. I have also added Facebook to my trusted sites in tools/internet options/security/trusted sites.

But if i go to facebook after opening an "in private browsing" tab, i don't see any problems like before.

Please, someone help me understand whats going on.

Two days ago I found myself unable to successfully log in to facebook. The initial log-in page appears, but when I enter email and password and hit enter, immediately it goes to the 'Internet Explorer' is unable to open this website, and I clicked on the reason and it seems to be a DNS error. For some reason or other, the server seems unable to locate the website.

So I had a look and found a similar thread started by imharry17 (or similar) complaining that he too could not open one specific website, and I downloaded the recommended 'dell domains' thing to see if that fixed it, but, like with the other user, this did not work.

I am not sure if this is a problem that can be fixed at home or whether it is necessary to call someone to sort it out, but obviously it is very irritating and I would be extremely grateful for any help sorting this problem out!

Thank you very much!

Hi Techguys,

Firstly, thank you for the great site, so glad to find somewhere I can find some help

I've had problems trying to access the Facebook website on my laptop since December 2012, something that seems to be common to many of your followers. I've read through many of your responses similar to my post, but have no luck with any of them yet :/ so I apologise for yet another request on this topic.

I'm currently accessing the internet by tethering my mobile phone to my laptop and have also had problems accessing Facebook on my HTC also.

Operating System is Windows 7 Home Premium.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Hi guyz,

Hope you are fine and doing well. I wanted to know how we can disable a particular web site for a particular user. Especially website like face book that may have more then one IP addresses.

One possible solution might be to use a proxy server but in my situation we cannot use a proxy server, we have a ASA-5510 Firewall installed. I was looking any cost effective software which can be configured with this firewall or we can simply deploy any other network software that can do this job?

Unfortunately I do not have experience on firewall and its configuration so I am looking for some other good solution.
 

A:How to disable a website such as Facebook

Per user can be tricky. If you want or don't mind blocking for all users edit your hosts file. You can find it usually in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc. Edit this file with notepad and insert the following line:

127.0.0.1 facebook.com

Save and close. DO NOT change the name of the file or this will NOT work.

Reboot your system and try to access the site.

I was on the facebook website before the problem happened. Something weird happened, new updates wouldn't come through my newsfeed so I refreshed the page. Then, instead of seeing the facebook page, all the page said was: Server not found

Hello ,While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large, as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Athough our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, you wouldn't want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it, would you?Thank you for understanding.Regards,The weatherman

3) Delete all temp internet files, and cookies (export them if you don't want to lose them, can import them back later)

I restart and defrag. Even tried system restore!

Here's my situation:

I cannot access the website facebook.com with any browser on my computer. I can however access login.facebook.com, university.facebook.com etc... as well as any other web page in the world. Any browser that I use will have this problem. It is not the internet provider because I have had 2 (in 2 different countries) and the problem persists.

I never had this problem before, but started to notice this after I installed a free firewall around 6 months ago. (yeah dumb mistake on my part) I uninstalled it after a day and luckily there were no viruses.

It seems to me that the firewall didn't completely uninstall correctly and something is left over that prevents me from ever going on the site.

Tried reverting registry to a previous saved copy but to no avail.
There are also no additional exe's that im aware of that might belong to the firewall running.

so basically:
This problem is localized on my computer and is independent of browsers and isps. I can use facebook, but anytime when I am redirected to the main directory facebook.com/...., it will show "this page cannot be loaded". I do not have any viruses or malware whatsoever and keep my system clean. Also it's been 6 months and if it were a virus, then it sucks.

please help, this problem is driving me nuts! if you use facebook, then you'd know that this means I can't add any apps and lose certain key functionality with the site.

Here is my original post:

Hey guys, just built myself this new shiny computer with an AMD 8120 processor, 8GB ram, plenty of storage and a decent graphics card.

It runs games, Photoshop, multiple browser sessions all at the same time, and I even upgraded to the cable companies fastest internet...

So why the BLEEP can I NOT get on Facebook?

Seriously across ALL browsers (especially Chrome which I've uninstalled and reinstalled) I get extreme slowdown or loss of connection ONLY with Facebook. I've pinged it and gotten very fast responses, but I cannot do ANYTHING on their servers.

When I was FIRST downloading software, a friend of mine used a program that allows you to install lots of recommended programs at once, he downloaded and used a "torrent downloader" program, and that is the ONLY thing I think could be causing some issue. I've used Ad Aware and tried to fix it, gone into incognito mode (which helps sometimes) and used other browsers, but somehow facebook still is slow.

Can anyone help?

EDIT: another strange issue, even though all my settings are correct I have to send email 3/4 times in Windows Live Mail before the server accepts it. I get a LOT of server not responding errors.

Both the above named apps after finally getting the AU, will not actually load. they both self close before getting off the icon screen. I only discovered this when I went to check a notification from action center instead of loading up the browser. Now I was still getting notifications while they would not load but after uninstalling/rebooting, clearing app caches multiple time they have stopped even doing that which I expected. The notifications was the main reason I even had the programs, so I could get those notifications when I did not have the site open.

I have tried every solution google could also give me including clearing out manually some registry entries between an uninstall and reinstall and clearing out all Facebook windows credentials but nothing has made a difference.

In event viewer each generated 2 errors and between then an information entry.
the ones for the main Facebook app

first error:

I use facebook on my iphone and it works fine but for some reason it wont work on my computer. I have tried both IE and FIrefox. I have logged into my boyfriends account successfully but when I try mine it just refreshes the login page and says 'you need to login to view this page' in a yellow bar. It seems very odd that i can log in to my boyfriends account but not my own and that my own is working ok on my iphone. Any ideas?

Cheers guys

have windows 7 computer is acer aspire 5517 amd athlon processor tf-20 1.60 ghz 64 bit operating system. computer is working great, but facebook loads the top line that shows name messages notifications etc. but will not show feeds or entire list of options on the left hand side of page. i also have a tablet that is so years old and hasnt been updated in years and facebook works fine on it. i think it has to have something to do with the settings on this computer, because no ones fb will work on this laptop. two months ago got virus that would not allow me to restore to previous date so i ended up wiping back to original status when bought.(reloaded???). when this current problem started 5 days ago, i figured what the heck and wiped it again. got avg free edition for protection. also have ccleaner and malware bytes. like i said everything else seems to be working fine. we us miniclips for games-google-gmail-yahoo-amazon and thats about all we do with this computer.
have tried the s at the end of the http.went to tools and deleted browsing history

When I open a Facebook page from Thunderbird Mail, some videos have the usual "triangle" to click on (these are OK) and there are other videos that have a "flashing three lines", these I cannot open.
 
The other problem is a black bar at the top of the open Facebook page. Again, this page is opened from Thunderbird Mail. At the top of the black bar the menu bar from Firefox is showing up in grey type color.
 
I hope the above info is enough for one of you guys to put me on the right track to fix these irritating issues.
 
I am running on Win 8.1 on a Dell PC. It is about 18 months old and to date I have had very few problems.
 
As far as I can determine, we had a power failure, the PC shut down (normal) and these issues were observed after bringing the machine back on line. I also had an issue with Adobe Flash in Firefox. However i seem to have corrected that issue.
 
Please help this old bloke from the UK
 
Regards,

A:Cannot open videos in Facebook and a black bar at the top of the open page

Following a shut down caused by a power outage it is not impossible that some things have got corrupted.
 
I would be inclined to (1) back-up my contacts, then (2) uninstall both Firefox and Thundrbird, then(3) re-install them, followed by re-instating my contact list if necessary.

Intermittently, and more and more recently, when I try to go to the Facebook home page (www.facebook.com) I get an error message that says "Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site http://www.facebook.com/home.psp?. Operation aborted." and IE promptly closes.

I am using IE7. I have tried to fix this by clearing all my offline files, browsing history and cookies. This did not work 100% of the time. I also reset all the Advanted Internet Options to manufacturer's default. This was also unsuccessful. I tried accessing Facebook using IE (without add-ons) but got the same error message. I don't know what to do. This is the only site where I get this error. I am running Symantec Anti-Virus (fully updated) and it hasn't picked up on any problems.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer me for this problem.

As of yesterday morning, I can no longer open facebook on my computer. My husband is on the same router, and he can. Nothing in Firefox appears to be suddenly blocking it. I've removed AVG 2015. Same problem, so I reinstalled it. I deleted cookies in Firefox and blocked history. I can't find an answer in any stream. When I attempt to connect, a message on the bottom of the screen says: "connected to fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net..." It just tries interminably to connect and doesn't. I don't know if this is a virus. I'm stumped. HELP

A:Can't Open Facebook

Try clearing out the cache and cookies in your browser. Just go to Tools, Internet Options, and clear them out there.

Additionally, do you have any anti-virus, anti-spyware or firewall software running? Just to test, try disabling them and then try accessing the site again. Sometimes these programs have a rejected website list, and every now and again a valid site ends up on that list.
