    Weird. As the time of my OP it was the standard "page cannot be displayed". Was just there 15 minutes prior to this typing; seems ok. No trouble either from my mobile.

    What the..? is goin on? :)

    I've had that happen and yet my daughter who will be sitting mere feet
    behind me can log in from her puter. Dunno.

    When it happens, you have the option of using a packet sniffer.


    In the View : Name Resolution, you turn on all the options there, to
    get the display to use a bit more plain English (i.e. translate numeric
    IP addresses into symbolic ones like "connect.facebook.com").

    What you'd hope to see there, is evidence of a simple networking failure,
    or perhaps the server sending back a "RST" packet. Those might be easier to
    analyze and guess at. If the actual problem is during the login phase, the
    login could be over https protocol, using SSL for encryption, in which case,
    Wireshark really can't help you (you'd need a way to decrypt the packets).

    You can download the source code for Firefox, and compile your own copy.
    And in doing so, you can turn on Debug Mode. But when I tried to debug
    a problem I was working on, I found the 1.2 million lines of code in
    there, was really too much to comprehend. I never did find the call
    I was looking for, despite multiple text searches in the source
    directory. It's just too much to navigate. And single stepping
    in Visual Studio wasn't getting me anywhere fast, either. It took
    a whole long day, to download around 2GB of files, set up Visual
    Studio, and get the source to compile. Great fun though :)

    This is a screenshot of the output of Firefox debug mode (the black
    window). The "mozconfig" file, is how you tell the build environment,
    what kind of build you want (debug or release version etc). So it is
    possible to hack the code, something you couldn't do with
    Internet Explorer.


    The "Namoroka" text at the top of the window, is the branding of Firefox
    when it isn't compiled as an official release.

    See, isn't free software fun ? :)

    Try flushing DNS cache: cached data can be in error once in while.
