Can't log on to facebook on laptop with firebox, but Ie facebook logon is ok

Posted

As of this morning (3/31/16) I'm not able to log on to facebook via firefox on my laptop - I see various line by line entries that come from the usual facebook login page, but no graphics like the usual page shows. I tried to log on via Internet Explorer, and was able to log on and get the usual looking facebook down loads as usual. What's changed with Firefox so that I can't get my usual facebook download? I've changed no laptop settings, so what's going on?

I found out the problem - I also use Ghostery to block all of the junk, and today Ghostery blocked "social media" , so I unblocked that for the Facebook Login page only, and was able to get the usual Facebook login page while using Firefox as my browser.
