Difficulties loading Facebook

There's something very hinky going on with my connection to various webpages... i get my homepage BBC fine but when i try to load Facebook for instance, i'm not getting a full shot - i pressed account setting and got a normal page but when i clicked on Home, i got a very weird page that doesn't load - and not a picture in sight. Until this resolves itself, please don't think i've fallen off the planet. i'm not getting pictures HERE and only some of my icons are showing up. Very odd. Does make me think it's picture related somehow, but damned if i know what it is or how to fix it - just hoping against hope, it's not some thrice damned virus...
See you later maybe!

do you think that the lack of pictures (of sites not loading properly) is some weird attempt to save money somehow? Or at least use all their energy to load up on ads/commercials first?
I'm not having so much trouble here or w/facebook as I am with my photobucket account...
it has become completely useless, and I'm seriously thinking about quitting it. Flickr is working beautifully... at the moment....
I'm not sure if I can depend upon anything online to work right!

Don't think so. It's definitely how my pc is seeing some webpages, like it's jumping to the Unicode setting instead of Western and even when i correct it in the View section, some pages won't comply until you refresh. Even then, some won't refresh and stay at Unicode. i still can't access Facebook properly, although i can now access my Bank fortunately.
i've always had problems with photobucket, it hates Firefox for some reason. i can't be bothered with it any more and only do Flickr now. That's the problem with computers, isn't it? They're beautiful and wonderful when they work and just so much scrap metal & wires when they don't!!

I hope you don't have a virus.... that was always the most depressing thing about a PC (I never knew when one would hit)... my iMac doesn't get viruses, but it doesn't interact well w/some websites (like my inability to buy a ticket for Comic Con... *sigh*)

Yeah, I adore my computer, most of the time... but nothing is so frustrating when it has problems. I hope yours is better soon!
