Facebook Error causing login problems for users


Facebook users are reporting problems logging in Sunday, with many hitting a page titled Facebook Error.

The first reports of the Facebook Error started Saturday (US time) but escalated Sunday as more users hit the screen (per the pic above).

An unconfirmed report has Facebook grappling with issues relating to the Facebook worm, “resetting some user passwords and scrubbing the service for the malicious links,” the result of which may be related to the issues.

At the time of writing, Facebook is working for me, although users on Twitter are still reporting the Facebook Error message.

If anyone knows more, leave a comment.

    i am getting this same error message. i can access all my other websites easily. i can get on with every other source but my laptop. i am frustrateddddd.

    I am frustrated as well! Same exact symptoms as Henry. Laptop will not log in. I don't remember adding anyone unfamiliar to me? Does the worm work through other profiles that I already added?

    I can access Facebook with no problems from my laptop, but get the error message when I try from my desktop. Just yesterday I downloaded and installed an update to my ZoneAlarm security suite. Could this have something to do with it?

    When I tried to log onto facebook on my laptop I landed on that error page. But when I logged in on my friends laptop I was fine.

    Google facebook error and click on the first link. It will take you to a page with a thread in which people are discussing not being able to send friend requests or something.
    It will allow you to log in at the top and then clcik on the facebook logo in the top left to get to your page.
    It worked for me anyway.

    Monday 15:00 (CET) this still happens, but only for some users in Denmark.

    Allthough I found a way in via Google, leading to a debate on Facebook (some MXit or so).

    It started not working for me on Saturday (for my husband too) and is still not working at 9:15 a.m. EST Monday.

    Well, interestingly enough, I can access Facebook just fine from my laptop, but not my PC. No rhyme or reason to that one I think.

    Well, I am blocked from Facebook. I was on this weekend and all of a sudden, I was taken to the login page. So, I tried to log on and t said my password was wrong. After several attempts, I clicked on forgot password, which in turn took me to reset password. It sent me an email saying that my password had been reset, so I click on the link and it takes me back to the site and then tells me my email address is wrong. It's like a vicious circle. After so many times of doing this, it tells me that I have too many attempts and I can't try anymore. I have sent an email to Facebook every day and no response. This is only on my laptop at home. I can get on at my office and on my iphone. What is going on? Can someone help me fix this?

    I tried that facebook/security link and it never worked, I got this message :

    The website is too busy to show the webpage
    HTTP 408/HTTP 409
    What you can try:
    Refresh the page.

    Go back to the previous page.

    More information

  25. Marilyn Shepherd

    I keep getting error message and it doesn't go beyond the first orange bar when logging on, it has been the same for two day now did manage to get in this morning through a link, but it didn't last long

  26. GSB

    I'm also having the redirection situation and haven't been able to log in for a week now. I've sent a message to Facebook but it probably will go nowhere from all the things I've been reading.

  27. Thomas

    windows users try typ ipconfig /flushdns in run from the start menu. I guess this will fix the problem for most ppl

    War of Word works but there is a popup that says error has occurred. Users just have to hit okay and the login works.
