On my laptop, Facebook does not load. I have tried on IE and Firebox, as well as Chrome. It works on my phone. I have cleared the cache, restored settings, and cleared cookies. I have tried it in an incognito tab, and have restarted. I can get to the log in page, but it goes blank after that. Any ideas?

This is a widespread outage. Not your fault.

Facebook was down for awhile this morning (for me, and for others) in a similar way, and while it's working for me again I imagine your stuff might be related to that.

For future reference, this site is great about letting you know if the site you're trying to get to is down.

This happens to people I know from time to time on laptops, even when Facebook is not down for anyone else. (Google: 'Facebook white screen') The only thing I've seen that fixes it is logging in on your phone, going to settings to see where you're logged in, and force-logging-off your laptop from the phone. Then the laptop works fine again.
