Can't access Facebook via IE9


Likes # 0

I upraded from XP to Win 7 at the weekend, after which I can't access facebook in IE9. It just hangs and won't load ..... no errors, just waiting and waiting and waiting and nothing appears !

I have cleared all IE9 settings/cookies/temp files/etc but it still just hangs and doesan't load.

Any ideas because this driving me nuts ?!!!

PS: All other websites load just fine !

Your problem is with IE9 - you said earlier Firefox will load Facebook but usually only after a hesitation of 15 seconds or more

With it being a completely new clean install I can only suggest that the problem may lie with Facebook and it may be worth trying to reinstall it.
