I run Windows 7. I use Firefox or Google Chrome. When I go to Facebook, it often will not load or lags so badly I give up and go have another smoke.
When I try and post something it often says can't try again.
This is frustrating the blue jeepers out of me.
I have run all of the following and disabled all add ons and even reinstalled both browsers. Clean as in I deleted the browser via program uninstall and then restarted the computer and then did a clean install.
Trend Micro anti virus.
All cleaned, all cookies and cache removed etc etc. And still I go to any other website and it cranks up and fires fast. But this darn Facebook.
Any suggestions, apart from deleting my account?
Hi Sandie mate - That's a pretty strange issue, affecting only the Facebook site. I had a quick look round the net and there doesn't appear to be any current reports of FB loading slowly, and it's loading fine on my Win7 machine using Firefox.
I would have bet on an add-on/extension being the culprit. I really can't think of anything you haven't already done or tried. Leave it with me and I'll have a further ponder, get back to you if/when I come up any possibilities.
In the meantime, one of our other team members might jump in with a few ideas.
Cheers mate... Jim
Have you tried Internet Explorer? Did you have the same results?
Wired or wireless internet connection? If wireless have you checked to see how many other wireless access points appear? Facebook is very content intensive and it is possible that conflicting access points on the same channel, or nearby channels, are slowing down the connection and causing the issue. This wouldn't necessarily be evident on other less content intensive sites.
