Facebook home page won't load

February 2015

Due to configuration issues in the system, the Facebook homepage may fail to load but internet surfing may not be affected for other websites. Emptying the cookies, cache and temporary folder may not help to solve the issue. Disabling the firewall would leave the system vulnerable to attack from external sources. Accessing Facebook as a secured site is one solution to the problem. Alternatively, the internet browser can be reinstalled. If the Facebook homepage fails to load, it could be due to a corrupted web browser. Reinstalling the browser will solve the issue as it will remove the corrupted files.

Facebook home page won't load




Issue


Facebook has stopped working for no apparent reason. Yesterday, while using Facebook, everything was working normally. However, without warning, it started behaving oddly. Pages do not load properly. Parts of the pages are visible as normal, but others do not display and most of the links on the page don't work.

I have tried logging into other accounts and they all suffer from the same problem. However, they all work fine on other machines. The internet is fine and it is only Facebook that is having problems.

I have tried all the usual fixes to no avail. I have emptied my cookies, cache and temporary folders. I have restarted the computer. I have allowed add-ons and pop-ups. I have made sure Facebook is a "Trusted Site." I have run Avast virus scan and Malwarebytes' Anti Malware scan. They detected no problems.

Solution


The most basic solution is to replace the http:// at the start of the URL with https:// however this is time-consuming and can become irritating as you will have to do it for every page. Instead you will need to download the latest version of your browser as it is likely it has become corrupt. Below are links to do this for some of the major browsers:

It is recommended that you close all open programs before doing this.
