User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Facebook shows a blank page in firefox. It works in IE, but i don't like IE. I've searched for answers but can't find any even on facebooks help page. Is anyone else have this problem on firefox?

1) Disable any script or cookie blocking extensions or settings
2) Upgrade Firefox
3) make sure Firefox has permission to pass through your firewall or other security apps

And you have a very weird useragent at the end of your post ...
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:3.6.24) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/3.6.24 ZemanaAID/FFFF0071
...and sites use a useragent to figure out how to present their info. so Facebook might be getting confused.

You either have some bad stuff in your computer that caused that or ??

Anyway, here's this doc.... ... in_default

Also, try Firefox Safe Mode: Menu > Help > Restart with Add-ons disabled. Do not check any boxes on the popup just press Continue. If the problem goes away then you probably have an extension blocking Facebook for some reason.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.
