    Thumbs up Facebook Issue on Mac OS! Help?
    Hi guys -
    i've been having issues with facebook on my mid-2010 model macbook pro. Whenever I type in facebook on ANY web browser (safari, Firefox or Chrome) I get this message pop up on my browser:

    Invalid URL
    The requested URL "/", is invalid.

    Reference #9.54e0fc7d.1346251324.452be76

    I have literally tried everything and scowered every forum on the internet for the solution. The only thing that works is typing Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More into my address bar and everything on the website loads up as normal. This has actually become quite frustrating as it won't let me sign up through facebook on any 3rd party sites or share anything to facebook (the share button on every external site says invalid on it). Does any web expert on these forums know what this could be? I've spent hours on this issue and am tapping out...I really don't want to re-install the operating system as this is literally the only problem i'm having with my mac. No other sites have this issue.

    Please help, if you can solve this issue you're officially better than 90% of the mac problem solvers out there it would seem! thanks = ) lol

    There was some transforms on your link - so are you saying you have to type in www twice before facebook dot com? That is www.www - as that is the link in your post.

    If that is the case - it sounds like you've got a DNS issue.
    -Do any other computers on your network require this?
    -What DNS are you pointing to?

    Open terminal -> Cmd-space -> Type in terminal
    Enter the following at the command line (Hit enter after every line)
    Code:
    nslookup facebook.com
    nslookup www.facebook.com
    nslookup www.www.facebook.com
    They should be close to these ranges
    What Is Facebook's IP Address?

    You could also try directly typing in one of those IP addresses in the browser bar and see if that works as well.

    there are quite a few people experiencing this issue however nobody from apple or facebook has been able to solve it. I'd be surprised if someone could figure this out...they probably could make a lot of money lol

    hey Ivan here is the info you were requesting. Also to answer your question every computer in the house is working normally and accessing facebook. It's just my macbook in particular which leads me to believe it's not a router problem.
