Facebook not working on any internet browser

Facebook is not working on any internet browser. IE, Firefox or Google Chrome. Possible cookie, cache related. All other sites are working fine.
Facebook appears, but it's the simple version, and takes forever to attempt to login.

    Every other internet page, in any browser, works fine!

    facebook doesn't work in any browser. Well, it "works" but EXTREMELY slow, and it's in that super simple mode. Sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    I need to get in contact with someone desperately, and it's really frustrating. Thankyou for helping.

    A few weeks ago I went into make room on my computer, deleted temp files, other c drive clean-ups, etc, and I'm thinking I've deleted a cache, cookie, etc, that has stopped it to work.

    Everything else works fine, except for Facebook, and also Deviantart and Yahoo Answers. From what I've seen.

    Gah.

If its a cache related problem, try clearing your browser's cache. Also try flushing your DNS. Open a command prompt and type:

ipconfig /flushdns

Yahoo mail opens on my computer without me signing in even after signing out and choosing the option "dont remember" password for this site. Not secure, anybody can access my mail


Good Day Dawam98!

There are cookies and caches that are set to remember identity of the user and its session. And there are cookies that are needed that helps the user sign out in its session. This could the problem you are experiencing right now.

There are two possible fix to this kind of problem. And it works for browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

First, we try to clear the caches and cookies on the internet browser you are using so that we could clear any user id and password that you used to sign in on the sites that you want like Yahoo! Mail.

Secondly, we will try to enable the cookies in the internet browser that you are using to allow you to sign out on the sites that you want like Yahoo! Mail.

And hope at the end of this procedure, it will fix your problem.

First solution: Clear cache and remove cookies of your internet browser

For Internet Explorer user, launch your Internet Explorer by clicking it. Press the Tools menu to scroll down and select the Internet Options. When an Internet Options window appear, select the General tab. Press the Delete button next to Delete browsing history or Delete Cookies (the Internet Options format may vary depending on the version of Internet Explorer) but the idea is to delete the cookies (that may also leads you to clearing the history and caches)

For Mozilla Firefox user, launch your Mozilla Firefox browser by clicking it. On the Tools menu, press Options. When an Options window appears, select on Privacy tab. Press the clear your recent history button. Select everything and press the Clear Now button. Next, press the remove individual cookies button, and press Remove All Cookies button. (On some version of Mozilla Firefox, Privacy tab may vary, but the idea is to remove cookies and clear caches.)

For Google Chrome user, launch your Google Chrome browser by clicking it. On Settings, select Options. (on other version, click Customize and Control Google Chrome button next to address bar and select Options). On Options window select on Under the Hood tab. On some version the format may vary but the idea is to clear the browsing history, empty cache and delete cookies.

Second and best solution: Allow cookies

Yahoo need foreign cookies to be enabled in order to sign you out.

For Internet Explorer user, launch your Internet Explorer by clicking it. Press the Tools menu to scroll down and select the Internet Options. When an Internet Options window appear, select the Privacy tab. Set the slider to Medium setting. This settings is enough to allow cookies on your Internet Explorer browser. Click Apply then OK button.

For Mozilla Firefox user, launch your Mozilla Firefox browser by clicking it. On the Tools menu, press Options. When an Options window appears, select on Privacy tab. Select Use custom settings for history next to Firefox will:. Make sure there is a check mark next to Accept cookies from site. Click OK button to close.

For Google Chrome user, launch your Google Chrome browser by clicking it. On Settings, select Options. (on other version, click Customize and Control Google Chrome button next to address bar and select Options). On Options window select on Under the Hood tab. On some version the Under the Hood format may vary, click on Change Google Gear Settings or Content Settings button. On Cookie setting, make sure to select the Allow All Cookies or Allow local data to be set (recommended).



It would be great if you let me know which solutions works for you.
A click on YES button in this solution is much appreciated.
Thank you for asking Fixya.

While opening my facebook account, a security challenge appears and its not working when i'm doing as written in security challenge .. plz give me simple solution so that i can open my facebook account...


Check which Internet Browser are you using?
Sometimes Clearing the cache in your browser or even trying a different Browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox can quickly Isolate these problems and allow you to figure out the exact cause of issue quicker. I'd recommend downloading a secondary browser and trying to login to your account. If this work then I would go back to my previous browser and clear the basic cache ( files downloaded and cookies )

Suggested Browser List Google Chrome Firefox Safari Opera Internet Explorer.
