Interesting problem re facebook and proxies
I've had a problem accessing facebook (including mobile facebook) for a while on one of my computers (Windows XP). This predates the shut down in Egypt when I was jumping from proxy to proxy for a few days to get access.
I discover to my surprise that I can still access it fine via a proxy but not with no proxy NOTE this is JUST on one computer.
Using the other computer (Windows 7 Starter) and the exact same USB dongle (which is my broadband) no problem.
Things I have tried on the computer with the problem:
Different browsers: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera - no joy
Clearing cache, history, stored passwords, cookies
Shut down restart
Shut down cold reboot
Non-mobile and mobile versions of the site.
Have double and treble-checked no 'proxies' accidentally set in the Firefox or Internet Explorer setups.
Have checked site not accidentally blocked in either.
Am at a loss! Why will it load fine using a proxy, and also on a different 'puter using the exact same connection, but not this one?
Any further suggestions gratefully received (please note what I have already tried before resuggesting it!!!)
