Does anyone else have issues accessing facebook on their macbook pro? all other websites open perfectly but when i try to access facebook, i get a blank page without even an error message. i'v tried changing my cookies setting to always accept cookies. worked for a few hours and could accept facebook but stopped shortly after. I'm worried this could suddenly start happening to other sites.

any tips? thanks.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    Yes, I have exactly the same problem.  The Facebook site give me completely blank pages in Safari.  I have just installed Mountain Lion, so this is obviously related to the issue.  I'm aware that I may have to download Java, which is not included in the standard Mountain Lion install, but there is no Java logo to click on the Facebook page.  (And yes, I do have plug-ins, Java, and JavaScript enabled in Safari's preferences.)

     

    Is there a site to which I could go to check my Java installation?

     

    Thanks.

    Well, at the time i posted my first message, i was using a different ISP dongle. but as soon as i changed ISP, I was able to go on facebook again. does anyone know why this happened? how do i prevent it from happening to other more important websites?
