How come FaceBook times out for me?

by on December 26, 2012

Q: Ever since the Facebook site had issues in early December, when I try to access my Facebook page with my newer laptop it always times out and never loads with all web browsers (e.g. Firefox, IE, Chrome). However, I can access any other websites I want with no problems. I have tried flushing, reinstalling Firefox, using CCleaner, checking security settings, etc. It is not my internet configuration either because Facebook loads and works fine on my other, older laptop. Furthermore, when I try to access Facebook with my newer laptop on a different wireless connection (e.g. in a different state!), it still does not load. So–it appears the issue is specific to my newer laptop. How do I fix this issue? If relevant, I have an ACER and run Windows 7. Thanks.
