Login to another user account on your Mac. Try Safari / Facebook there.
Also, in your admin account, try troubleshooting the Safari .plist file.
Quit Safari. Open a Finder window. Select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. It has a small house icon. Then open the Library folder then the Preferences folder.
Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop. Launch Safari.
If the Facebook page loads, move that .plist file to the Trash.
Also, in the admin account. Make sure your system software is up to date. Click the Apple () menu (top left in your screen) Software Update ...
It could be a DNS issue. Open System Preferences/Network. Click Advanced at the lower right of that window. Click the DNS tab. Under the DNS Servers window click the plus button and enter:
Click the plus button again and enter:
Click OK. Click Apply, quit System Preference and see if it will fully load now.
These are DNS numbers from opendns.com. I use them and have had success when friends have problems loading sites.
Next thing I would try is quitting Safari and throwing away it's preferences located at;
Put this file on your Desktop or in the Trash.
If that doesn't work, try disabling all extensions by sliding the main slider to off.
Lastly, I would try resetting Safari under Safari's menu heading.
Deleting Safari cache and cookies helps for a short time.
What I have done now is delete the file ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db and made a symlink to /dev/null so all cache gets redirected into space.
I have a proxy server and a high internet speed so for me there is no speed difference except that Facebook is now working correctly.
- quit Safari and open terminal:
- in terminal do: rm ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db
- and: ln -s /dev/null ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db
