    Facebook won't open on Macbook or Iphone5
    Not sure if this is the write sub-forum since I am having an issue on both my macbook and iphone. Facebook will not load (on my home internet connection). When I go to on my mac, the screen just stays white. On my iphone, it times out saying there is a problem with my internet connection.

    However, I can get to any other website on both my iphone and mac, and facebook works fine on my wife's PC. I've tried almost everything I could find on here from related threads like re installing, making sure my systems are up to date, emptying the cache...

    Anyone ran into a similar problem?

    It sounds like there may be a DNS problem on your router. Open up the settings for your router and change the DNS servers to use OpenDNS. Instructions here:
    OpenDNS IP Addresses

    You don't have to register on their site, like they try to get you to do. Just use the IP addresses provided. If you aren't sure how to do this, post back with details of which exact router you have.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
