    For the past 3 days, i have had problems with Facebook. I can log in, and nothing else. i cannot click on a tab; say i want to read my inbox, i click on inbox and i get the "busy" swirl and cursor, and nothing else.

    I have a dual core Vista running at 2.4GHZ, running Firefox 3 and i use AVG.

    using someone's laptop i submitted a bug report to FB.

    anyhelp would be nice.

    So you can click on the tabs and do whatever else on other peoples computers or does it not work on any of them?

    Same problem's been happening to me. Except that mine's pretty random.

    Sometimes it's all fine when I log in, but when I click on other peoples' profile/Home/anything, it just loads up a blank page with the bottom bar.

    It's most likely a network issue with facebook then. Since you say it happens on your friends laptop as well. Most I can tell you is clear your cookies and such and wait for a reply from a facebook rep.

    No help from FB, but i entered Firefox safe mode and could navigate around FB- let my peeps know i was having trouble and trying to fix it.
    i uninstalled FF 3.0, installed 3.5, restored my backups. but when i try to follow the directions that Mozilla gives for deleting cookies in FF 3.5, my FF will not allow me to do that. so until this weekend when i can call someone i know with FF, i will just use safe mode for a few days more.
