My firefox recently updated about 10:30 pm last night and as soon as this happened, facebook stopped loading - as in the page is a white blank page. However, all the other websites work. I cleared the cache, cookies, allowed exceptions, did every little quirk that I can think of with web browsers and it didn't do anything. I used the website inspector tool and it shows that the code is loading, so the information is there. And I noticed that the little "favicon" next to the URL of the address is a locked lock and not unlocked, so I'm wondering if it's a security issue.
HOWEVER, I own an ipod touch not a smartphone (no phone service connection) and the ipod uses wifi and I can connect through the facebook app.
I tried logging onto facebook via my imac since that is a newer computer than my laptop and still the same issue.
AND to add to all this, my friends can access their facebooks through their web browser, so by process of elimination I think it's the security update!
HOW can I remove this!!! This is extremely frustrating not being able to logon to facebook and a necessity for me in my line of work.

I am having some trouble with all flash blocking plug-ins across the board not working.
The main one I was using was the flashblock plugin; it doesn't seem to be working.
I am using Firefox 41 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard).
Currently what happens is usually the first page I open with a video on it, such as youtube, is blocked effectively, but if I open other videos the Flashblock button appears, but in the background, the video loads anyway, with sound only.
Prior to this, for several months the plugin was working to block the content from playing, but the button to activate it wouldn't do anything... I had to use an alternative browser to watch video content online.
I have tried disabling all other plugins and that makes no difference.
I also tried installing alternative flash blocking plug-ins such as Flash Control and FlashStopper, running them solo as well to similar results.
Additionally, I installed a plug-in in Chrome (FlashControl) to block flash and it also behaved in a similar manner, blocking the first page sometimes, but then not working at all.
If anyone could tell me how I might go about solving this issue, I would greatly appreciate it. Google does not seem to be helping.
