Question about Facebook Social Network

1 Answer

When I try to load FB on IE, I get a file download box to download a file on my computer called facebook. I was in my account changing some of the privacy settings when fb went off and this box showed up. Why is this happening. I can go to facebook in google chrome but not IE. What has happened? I don't want to download an unknown file.

How do I get my old facebook account back?


For one thing, you do not open a Facebook profile for a business, you open a Facebook business page, if you insist on doing it, you should have used a different number and email address, that's Facebook 101.

I would suggest you log out of your new account, do a search for the old account, log into that one and change both the phone number and the email

Since Facebook only allows one profile per person, I would suggest you change both asap before FB randomly decides to eliminate one of the profiles

My profile picture will not show what do i do help


See if this helps. I couldn't get Firefox or Chrome to bring up my FB images, same as pic above.
in case problem is not dissolve that means if you are using router you reboot or check the setting
once try connect LAN wire and try



So I opened up IE and logged onto FB and it worked perfect. ( IE is NOT my regular browser).All photos, headers the works all showing up. I then opened Chrome up and cleared my cache for the past week, incase some sort of bug was there. I reset my Firefox brower, by getting rid of add ons. To do this go to Firefox help, troubleshooting, click reset Firefox button on top right hand side. Then tried FB in Chrome and Firefox and they are both loading FB perfect too, now.



Don't know if it was an FB bug, or if loading FB in IE first solved the problem. Try running the IE browser and signing into FB, maybe that will fix the problem. Then log off and try logging into FB again with your other browser. If you still see a problem, then the other steps I did re Chrome and Firefox may help you. Good luck!

Im unable to access my fb games lately. When I click the app on my fb page it says, page requested not found. The link doesnt look the same. When I change it, it switches back.


It is possible that you enabled Secure Browsing (https) on your account. Many games do not allow you to have the https connection. To turn this off you could click on Account, then Account Settings at the top right. When that page loads there are several options. Towards the bottom is Account Security. Click Change. Uncheck
Secure Browsing (https) Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible


Click Save and try again. When you are done playing your games if you are still concerned about your security you can repeat this process and then check that box and save when you are finished gaming.

I loaded facebok on an old computer and never got all of facebook. Now I have a new pc and I can't log in at all. I would like to delete my old account and create a new one. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! ...


Your new computer shouldn't be causing a problem logging onto Facebook (FB). Can you specify what the problem is when you try accessing your FB account? If you've forgotten your FB password - which should be different to your email address password, then go via the link at the bottom of the window "Forgotten Your Password?" (in blue).

Just to let you know, downloading / originally registering on one computer does NOT stop you accessing FB from any other computer (the same as you can get your home emails on any computer in the world, that's connected to the internet).

Error page in facebook page


Try cleaning your temporary internet files, and your cache files. Depending on your IE version try updated to IE8. If you have a firewall such as zonealarm it might of switch to protected mode. The Program Switch will switch every 21 days.
