If you are behind a corporate business (or similar environment) firewall, Firefox may be disallowed for some reason.

How to access facebook at school when blocked


Hello,

In this article I will go over different methods of accessing facebook when it is being blocked by your school for example. None of these methods are guaranteed to work. This article can be used to access blocked sites in general.

FreeGate
1) If you are able, go to google.com and download Mozilla Firefox. It is a internet browser.
2). Using Firefox, go to google and download/install a program called Freegate.
3) Install the program and follow the instructions it gives you to setup the configuration. You will be changing some proxy settings.
Make sure that freegate is running when you are using firefox.

Switching to HTTPS
1) If you are at school, and you go to http://www.facebook.com, and it is blocked, you can try adding a "s" to http. What this does is switch from a standard connection to an encrypted one. Some administrators will not block a secured connection. Just simply add the "s" so it is https://www.facebook.com

Online Proxy
This basically hides your online movements. It is less likely to work as administrators will block sites with the words "proxy" and or common proxy sites.

1) You may be able to use an online proxy to go to facebook. The links below are to some of my favorite online proxies. Just simple go to one, enter in the URL address(in this case http://www.facebook.com) and it should take you to the website.

Click here for Zend2 Proxy
Click here for HideMyAss Proxy


CTunnel
This site has some really aggravating ads, but if you can look past that it is decent.

1)If you can access this website, you can use it to visit facebook.
Click here for Ctunnel

Setting up a private proxy server with SSL
This step is more in depth, but the pay off is that you will have your own private proxy server with SSL encryption you can use to visit any site you want without fear of being blocked or your traffic viewed. Very ideal for anonymous web browsing.

For this method, it is recommended to setup a proxy server on a Linux based computer, however, you can use Windows. Once you have a private server set up, you can set your proxy configuration in firefox to use your server.

You can read more about this step by visiting the link below.

Foxy Proxy Download

Alternatively, instead of creating a server you can pay to use one or maybe you know someone with a server. A simple google search of "proxy servers" can yield the results you want.

I hope this article was informative. Be sure to pay attention and do your class work :)

Regards,

Neither Internet Explorer or Firefox will connect to internet. Firefox say it cant connect to proxy server. How do I check proxy settings?


Open your Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections "Tab" -> LAN Settings -> Proxy server, uncheck the box -> OK

Restart your Browsers ie IE or Firefox, you don't need the proxy server if your are a home users.

Hope it helps.

Cant open facebook account has been disabled? which I opened up for my daughter


Hi,


Clear your cache and delete all of your cookies in your browser. In your browser, type in the address bar http://www.facebook.com/login (which doesnt exist).This will take you to a different login page which reads: "The page you requested was not found." At the top of this page is a login box. Try using this login box to login to facebook. If you are using the Adblock extension with Firefox, and subscribe to an ad list (basically a list of known ads online), it blocks a special site (fbcdn.net) that Facebook uses to login. Go to:http://www.facebook.com/login.php (the page you are having trouble logging in) and click on the Adblock Stop Sign on top of Firefox, and you will see in red a url that includes fbcdn.net. Right click on that, and add an exception for the entire fbcdn.net domain. Reload the page. This should fix the problem.
You can also use a Proxy Server to connect to Facebook.com. Search Proxy in GOOGLE,select Proxy Server and type in facebook.com (in the proxy server webpage).Finally now you can login into your facebook account.


Thank you!!

I cant get on facebook


You can try a number of different solutions which have worked for some people:

Solution 1.
In your browser, type in the address bar http://www.facebook.com/login (which doesnt exist)
This will take you to a different login page which reads: "The page you requested was not found."
At the top of this page is a login box. Try using this login box to login to facebook.
.
Solution 2.
Download Firefox 3.5 and used that instead of Internet Explorer.
here is the link for downloading it
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html
.
Tip: If you are using the Adblock extension with Firefox, and subscribe to an ad list (basically a list of known ads online), it blocks a special site (fbcdn.net)
that Facebook uses to login.
.
Go to: http://www.facebook.com/login.php (the page you are having trouble logging in) and click on the
Adblock Stop Sign on top of Firefox, and you will see in red a url that includes
fbcdn.net. Right click on that, and add an exception for the entire fbcdn.net domain.
Reload the page. This should fix the problem.
.
Solution 3.
Use a Proxy Server to connect to Facebook.com
1. Search Proxy in GOOGLE
2. Select Proxy Server
3. Type in facebook.com (in the proxy server webpage)
4. login into facebook account
5. (although all games will work - but Farmville may have problems loading).
