Is anyone else having problems connecting to Facebook today? Other websites are OK, but Facebook won't load. I did get it to load once, but made the mistake of trying to refresh and it's just sitting there frown

Edit: It works on my iPad (both app and Safari, though latter is slow) but still won't load on PC. iPad is using my BT connection via Wi-Fi so looks like it isn't that?? Is the DNS different on an iPad?

I am a very rare visitor but get occasional updates from there and a couple have just arrived. So, using the links:

Firefox (several times):
The connection has timed out

The server at www.facebook.com is taking too long to respond.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


With IE it came up with et Dell /Google Help/search page! after about 2 minutes and going for Facebook.com took about 2 minutes to load


edit to add

After several more attempts, FF did finally load the page.
