Try hitting the stop button and then going to another page. When you install, FB tries to connect to throw up the Mozilla page the first time that you run.

If you use a proxy, go into Tools -> options to set your proxy information.

Do you have a firewall installed? I know I sometimes have trouble with programs not connecting to the net & then I remember I have to set my firewall (Kerio 2.1.5) back to "Ask Me First" mode from "Deny Unknown" mode so I can create a rule to allow it..
