Question about Facebook Computers & Internet

3 Answers

Just like everyone else, I can't log in either, the site maintenance error for 5 days now. I have done the deleting of cache, cookies and history, nothing works. I acutally talked to a girl at FB on Monday (10/5/09) and all she knew was that there was bug and they were working on it. Well, damn, how long does it take? I'm wondering too, like others, should I just open a new account. I did just send an email to FB using the privacy@facebook, since the other email I had (info@facebook) was not getting me anywhere. UGHHHHHH!!!!

    The two difference computers that I tried to log in from used different browers. Safari and Internet explorer. Still not luck. Thanks.

    Well the people at facebook finally put something up when I tried to log in today (10/9/09), please read below. It's about time they let us know something, it's only been 6 days since I have been able to log in. UGHHHH!!

    Sorry, due to site maintenance your account is unavailable at this time. We are currently experiencing an extended site maintenance issue that is preventing some users from accessing their accounts or Pages they may administer. Rest assured that your account has not been deleted or compromised. Your original account will be restored as soon as possible so there is no need to create a new one. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you've encountered while attempting to log in to Facebook during this time.

    You can stay updated with the progress of this bug by visiting the Help Center.

I am still going through this problem with Facebook for the past 6days, I have found a # for facebook. I was able to talk to a liveperson. They said that it was some kind of bug, but they do not offertechnical support over the phone. But I figure, why not swamp them withcalls, since they do not answer any of our emails....

Hi there,

If no one is able to open any particular website, there has to be a serious issue. The server of that website might be down or not responding.
You may try to check with other browsers, Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

Warm regards,

How do I clean my cache


As you surf the Web and enter log in information, some sites store your personal information in files called cookies.


Cookies save your log in data so that you don't have to enter the information each time you visit a site.


In addition, some sites save site data such as images and documents in your browser's cache.


These temporary files can speed up the time it takes to visit the website in the future.

If you want to get rid of cookies and cache data, you can do so by following a few steps.


Open Internet Explorer and select "Safety" on the toolbar.


Select "Delete Browsing History..." and select the boxes next to "Cookies" and "Temporary Internet Files."


Click "Delete" to clean your cache and cookies.


Firefox


Open Firefox and select the "Tools" menu. Click "Clean Recent History."


Select "Everything" from the drop-down menu next to "Time Range to Clear."

Select the boxes next to "Cache" and "Cookies" in the list below "Details."


Click "Clear Now" to erase your cache and cookies.


Google Chrome


Open Google Chrome and click the "Wrench" icon to the right of the address bar.


Select "Options" and click the "Under the Hood" tab. Click "Clear Browsing Data" under "Privacy" and select the boxes next to "Empty the Cache" and "Delete Cookies and Other Site Data.

" Select "Everything" from the "Clear Data From This Period:" drop-down menu.


Click "Clear Browsing Data" to empty your cache and delete your cookies.


Hope this helps.

When I log into one of my facebook accounts it will not let me connexct to farmville. My other facebook avvount works fine. I can visit this farm as a neighbor farm but cannot open it on its own.


First, verify if the problem is your Facebook account is working on different computer. Try to access your FarmVille (FV) in a different computer that is CONNECTED in a DIFFERENT network and see if the same problem will occur.

If your FV works on diff. computer, then it's not your FV, the problem could be your internet browser. You may either access your FV using another internet browser (Mozilla Firefox, Opera) in your computer, or clear the cookies, cache of your browser.

To clear the cookies and cache, here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:
1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:
1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.


* For Safari:
1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.

Page unavailable - maintenance issue???


Make sure that you clean your cookies and ****. You can access your internet cleaning options by pressing this combination Ctrl+Shift+Delete. You can choose what you would like to delete there. Ususally deleting cookies and web history will work. Now if you delete web history, then you will have to enter the address into the bar again. Thereafter, it will continue to keep your history. It is a good rule of thumb to clean your cache every couple of weeks.

Clean you cookies and internet cache. Press this key combination, Ctrl+Shift+Delete, this will bring up your history options and other options to clean your browser. Choose all that apply. Refresh your Facebook page and it may work. Other than that, it is an issue with Facebook.
