    I'm havig a problem with Facebook. It is not working with MSIE. This just started suddenly today. I CAN access my Newsfeed, but as soon as I try to access any other page Facebook freezes up. I do not have the problem with Chrome, but I don't like Chrome and would like to know what's going on. :(

    My husband is having the same problem on his computer.

    Hi, I have had this happen today also- what I did was Reset Internet Explorer settings....

    Here is the basic idea: From the Control Panel> Internet Options, under the Advanced tab......click on Reset where it says Reset Internet Explorer settings to their default condition be prepared to change back your home page and default search to what you want and you should expect to be able to log in to sites that require you to access an account...be prepared for it. You may lose your Favorites too, so try and back that folder up, here is a page that explains how to:

    Soon as I reset IE's settings my Facebook was back...hope this helps for your issue as well. Post back if you need further help.

    Hi, Bill -

    A couple of days after I posted this, the problem solved itself! I think this may be a FaceBook issue, as I've seen sevral others with this problem. I WILL keep your reply in mind, of course, in case it happens again and doesn't resolve itself.

    Thank you for your time and reply. I appreciate all that you techs do to help us. :cool:

    Have a Happy Easter. ;)

    - Jan

    When the problem solves itself, or not- and you take the time to come back and post the outcome, it benefits all the members of our forums, who depend on the person posting to let us know - and you very nicely came back and did just that! Thank you!
