A few days ago I had a google browser..pages were not loading well, then not at all like facebook etc..computer was generally slow.

I uninstalled google and installed firefox.

Computer is much faster, and I can get all my sites much faster and I like the firefox set up but...

I can't access facebook at all.

What can I do to fix this? If you can give me easy step by step instructions I would appreciate it. You are talking to a old 77 yr old lady here. LOL

Thank you.

Are you getting an error message when you fail to access facebook?

 

What antivirus are you using?

Please accept m y sympathy!\

 I seemed to have solved my problem. After searching the problem I found that I should check to see if my no proxy option was selected. It wasn't, I did and rebooted and wha la facebook is back. Google had been terrible for me the past few weeks. So slow and pages wouldn't open and so on. I got rid of it and I am liking this firefox. I have yahoo everything else so maybe it is better for me.

I ran across the same solution, but this has a problem with Windows 8.1.  Removing the check from the no proxy box appears to not remain unchecked afterward.  Please  check to see if this is the case.  There is a article which you may be interested in reading, you can find it here.

 

I had waited to respond to your topic until you had posted what antivirus you are running because there may be a filter which would do this in a less complicated way.
