How to fix the problems with Facebook on Google Chrome?

June 04, 2012 07:17 PDT

Lots of people are having problems with Chrome and Facebook. You can try the ways below:

  • Log out of Facebook completely and clear your browser cache.
  • Try using Facebook through a HTTPS connection. If this works, you can set Facebook to go to a HTTPS connection all the time by going to Account -> Account Settings -> Account security.
  • Your browser user profile may be corrupted, you can try to create a new user profile to replace the broken one.
  • Completely uninstalling and then re-installing your Google Chrome.
  • Try opening the website under another user account on your computer.
  • Update your Google Chrome to the latest version. You can check it by clicking the menu: Wrench -> About Google Chrome and allow Chrome to update. You can also directly download it from Google and then install it.

  • Update/reinstall Java and Flash.
  • Disable all browser plugins/themes/extensions.
  • Your computer may have been infected by a virus or malware, consider running a full security scan with reputable, up-to-date antivirus software such as Microsoft Security Essentials, McAfee or AVG.

if all else fails, it may not be the fault of your computer, but rather that Facebook itself is having issues. You can check the status of known issues on Facebook.

It is now September, and I have continued to have issues with Google Chrome and Facebook. When loading a Facebook app, the browser does not load in the stylesheet producing a jumbled mess of content.

Oddly enough, the same app works fine on IE, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. I have tested every browser on both PC and Mac. Both produce the same results. Chrome is the only verdict. This is clearly an issue with Google that needs to be addressed.

As a web designer, the obvious goal is to make everything consistent, regardless of the browser. Can anyone give the slightest update on this?

This is not a fix for the Facebook refresh issue.

The author has given us BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS that you would do with ANY BROWSER PROBLEM. Not specific to the Facebook refresh issue with Google Chrome.

Which mean he is just guessing what will fix the problem, but doesn't know the actual fix for the problem. Essentially insulting our intelligence.

We are looking for a SPECIFIC FIX for a SPECIFIC PROBLEM. Not some random generalization just to get the author's name in lights.

Quit wasting our time with BASIC COMMON KNOWLEDGE.

I recently had a problem with Facebook not working properly on Chrome. If I opened an "incognito" window and logged in there, it worked fine, as well as on my other browsers. Upon doing research, I first tried doing a System Restore to a point that I knew it was working, BUT THAT DIDN'T FIX IT! I tried re-installing Chrome, BUT THAT DIDN'T FIX IT! I then tried clearing my browser cookies, cached images and files, hosted app data, and content licenses from the past day, then the past week, and then finally when I did so "from the beginning of time" THAT FINALLY FIXED IT. All I can say is "CRAZY!" I'd like to know WHY this happened... What was the cause? But for now, it remains a mystery.

Having similar problem getting facebook to load with Google Chrome. No previous problems until last week. Can't load or is very slow to load. Doesn't always bring up my facebook page. Tried all the suggestions to no avail. How do I get my facebook page back when I've tried the basic suggestions given? I am on a Mac using Google Chrome as my browser.

Go to command prompt and type ipconfig/flushdns and hit enter

It works for me.
