Firefox can't find the server at www.facebook.com.


I followed all the instructions and suggestions listed on firefox support page and can not access facebook. The error I get says:

Firefox can't find the server at www.facebook.com.

   *   Check the address for typing errors such as
         ww.example.com instead of
   *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
         that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

This was a server crash that happened to Facebook a few days ago. After all, they do have a lot of people on at one time. It should be fixed by now, but sites cannot always be assured not to crash at any moment. To determine if a site is down or if your computer/browser is having a problem, go to http://downrightnow.com/ . If it wasn't just a crash and Facebook still doesn't work, please reply.
