    Why is Facebook not working on chrome and firefox!!!

    Hei everyone! every single website is working except for facebook. i don't know how to fix it. i cleared the browsing data and it works for like 5 minutes. i tried to reinstall google chrome and it doesn't change anything. i can't uninstall it neither because it says "Virtual packages like 'google-chrome' can't be removed
    "
    i tried with
    sudo apt-get purge google-chrome
    sdo dpkg -r googl-chrome

    i cannot find it in the software center.


    what can i do?!!!

    If every single website is working except fb, that suggests to me that something's up with fb rather than your browser.

    Isn't today the internet blackout day where some sites choose to be down? But yeah, it sounds like a facebook issue, not browser.

    That might be it. Have you tried Facebook before (like yesterday)?
