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 184.108.40.206. 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?
OS X version 10.7.5
: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:
