Clean, fully updated Mint 17 install cannot connect to https://www.facebook.com/ using Firefox, Chrome or Konqueror. I stopped trying more browsers after that.

No other connection problems on that PC to other secure sites such as Amazon.

Clean Ubuntu install performed at same time on another PC has no problem connecting to Facebook nor do any other Winodws or Linux PCs on my home LAN. Rebooted cable modem and router for giggles but no change.

I've been using Linux since 1999 and haven't seen an oddity like this.

Can ping and traceroute to facebook.com .

What sayeth the hive mind?

I marked it "solved" because since now Thunderird is randomly quitting I'm taking the easy way out and swapping back my CentOS 6.5 hard disk until I decide on another distro for my new SSD.

I like the MATE desktop but there is no reason a clean desktop intsall should be this buggy on my very common T61.
