Just recently I am not able to connect to Facebook from my Admin User account, and it's the same for all three browsers.  Something has changed in the config somewhere and I can't find it. I can login as Guest and access my Facebook just fine. I can load Windows via Parallels and access it just fine. 


I have tried accessing the web via a different Modem and Network and still have the same problem.  I have set the DNS server to  The Firewall is turned off.  I do not have a firewall managers.  I do not have any Parental controls turned on. I have created a seperate user with admin rights and the same problem occurs.  I have flushed the DNS cache from terminal.  I have tried pinging facebook, but it does not return a connection.


This is a stumper and I'm pulling my hair out.  Any ideas anyone?

:Thanks to Andrew over in another thread, he posted the solution to how to fix my problem.  I restored a backup of a previous Hosts file and it fixed the problem.  But my question now is, how did it get mofified and/or corrupted?  Thanks Andrew:
