safari problem with hotmail and facebook

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hey all,

im having a problem with safari (2.whatever but its upto date) in that it wont let me log into my hotmail or facebook accounts. with hotmail i get this:

"Safari cant connect to the server.
Safari cant open the page https://login.live.com/ppsecure/............. because it could not connect to the server login.live.com."

and its pretty much the same with facebook:

Safari cant connect to the server.
Safari cant open the page https://login.facebook.com/login.php.. because it could not connect to the server login.facebook.com.

i can live without facebook but i need hotmail. does anyone know if there is anything i can do at my end to get rid of this problem? or will i have to take it up with M$/facebook?

thanks for any response

I've no problem with hotmail. Although I'm a Camino user I just logged into hotmail with my Safari browser and checked my email.

Don't know about facebook.

good thinking, just tried with firefox but got another error message. think it might be something to do with my isp or something.

cheers

If you're on a school network, they probably block Hotmail and Facebook. It's not a problem with Safari.

Yeah hotmail is ok. I've been thinking of switching to gmail, but inertia has kept me from doing so.

I am having the same exact problem with my safari. My facebook will not allow me to login with any address. When I emailed facebook to alert them of the problem, someone responded by saying that they knew of the problem I was facing and were "working on it". I have no idea what I can do about this. It seems to be a problem on my Mac, because my it works on my sister's and on a PC. How did you get yours to work?

This is a generic error message, usually meaning that somehow an ACK or SYN/ACK packet got dropped somewhere after the initial handshake. Specifically, Safari found the server, but can't seem to get the page off of it.

I've seen it occasionally, and a quick refresh or a reload brings on the page.
