Why can't I get facebook with Firefox now when I could before?

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (MAC)

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Pressing and holding shift while left clicking reload was all it took :-)

Try enter Facebook IP in address bar (220.250.64.24) In my case it will redirect to http://nfdnserror7.wo.com.cn:8080/issueunziped/nf130726/self0.jsp?UserUrl=220.250.64.24&loc=

and eventually I can access Facebook normally. I hope this work on your case.
