Hey everyone,

I am currently having a problem with Facebook and Firefox. I have the most up to date version of Firefox which is 5.0 I think and whenever I try and get onto Facebook I either get one of 3 things happen.

1) I can get onto Facebook for a few pages and then it will stop working and I will get one of the following errors.
2) I will get a 501 internal error report pop up.
3) I will get the "Content Encoding Error"

I can sometimes sort the problem for a very short time by clearing all the internet history and cache and then restarting Firefox but the problem usually comes back.

I uninstalled firebox and left the "Keep personal settings and information" ticked so I didn't loose my bookmarks but the problem persists.

I am able to use Firefox in Internet Explorer but I really really dislike that browser and would like to get my fave browser working again.

Any information or pointers would be great.

Thanking in advance, Jack-O-Bytes

Yeah, I've noticed that about Firefox 5. They only advice I can give at this time is downgrade back to Firefox 4 or Firefox 3 until everybody else catches up with where Mozilla wants them to be.
