For several weeks now Facebook does not work when using home network.  All other sites work fine.  Facebook works fine on my phone.  it doesn't work on any browser.  I have clear all history and cache.  I have reset the modem.  The only thing I can figure is that Comcast throttles the internet speed and this is why Facebook is unusable.  I know Facebook is not very important, but Comcast is extremely expensive and I would prefer that it works.

If all other sites work fine, then it isn't a problem with Comcast, it would be a problem with Facebook.  Down at the bottom of the Facebook login page there is a link for Help.  You might want to see if they can help you.

Re: Facebook

Perhaps a trace route to the site might reveal a clue ?

Re: Facebook

I have the same problem.  For the last couple weeks, Facebook on my laptop has stopped working properly, loads slowly, hangs, etc.  Every other page I access works fine.

 

It's very annoying.

 

FB works fine on my iPhone and iPad.
