    Facebook Issue - INFURIATING

    Hi all,

    Now this is a really annoying and unusual one. There are 2 members of staff at the school where i'm at who are having difficulties with FB. When they're logged into thw windows under their account and go onto facebook, login to facebook under their account after 5 seconds it comes up with an error "IE cannot display the webpage". Yet when i log into my fb account under the users windows account, it allows me on, and i can browse etc and do the normal facebook stuff, and the same happens when i logon to windows under my account (admin) it works for me on facebook but not for the user.

    Also sometimes it'll work like they'll be able to see the initial homepage but then when they go to click on a photo or anything it just comes up with the IE error.

    Does anyone have any clue what to do? I have recreated profiles, deleted browsing history/passwords etc etc and cannot think what to do now?

    I would say it is HTTPS. Are you behind a proxy?

    Have you considered your filtering could be blocking it? Maybe they have some swearing on their homepage etc and you don't so on their accounts you can access FB.

    Do they have these problems at home?

    As said it could be filtereing/proxy issue.

    Just out of interest why do you allow Facebook in school? We block all social media in school.

    didn't think about this but the people who's accounts it is aren't likely to have swearing on them.

    I don't know why they allow FB it's the schools choice. It's a managed service they'll whine if we don't let them have access to it. They say "we're grown adults, we shouldn't be told what to and what not to have" and no they don't seem to have these issues at home just seems to be in school.

    Most people wouldn't expect to see someone's lewd holiday snaps in public either but that doesn't stop some people!

    I also think it could be a https problem. It sounds like the users facebook profile is set to enforce https

    Are they using IE7/8?
    Do other browsers have the issue?
