Why can't I get facebook with Firefox now when I could before?
I always used Firefox as my browser. Now I can't open Facebook nor does the weather channel page load correctly. I uninstalled Mozilla Firefox and then reinstalled it but it didn't fix it. I can get FB when I use Internet Explorer.

Pressing and holding shift while left clicking reload was all it took :-)
Try enter Facebook IP in address bar (188.8.131.52) In my case it will redirect to http://nfdnserror7.wo.com.cn:8080/issueunziped/nf130726/self0.jsp?UserUrl=184.108.40.206&loc=
and eventually I can access Facebook normally. I hope this work on your case.
