It could be perhaps the host file? You can block a website in all browsers by modifying the host file. Look at this:

Scroll down to where it says "How to Block A Website in All Web Browsers". You may want to check and see if www.facebook.com is listed in the Hosts file.

I just thought of this...if your ISP is using open dns all games may be banned as well as gambling sites etc.

You say it is "intermittent", which implies that it works OK sometimes. The most likely reason therefore is that the web or website happens to be playing up. Wait a bit and try again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
