Logging on to Facebook

All of a sudden (have had my new iMac since December) I
keep getting this alert when I try to log on to FB more than once or
switch back and forth between accounts:
Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://www.facebook.com/”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.

couple questions. 
can you pull up one of the free VOD's and does it play  (on demand button > browse all > free)
if you can't - then that means the box is not connected to the net, which it needs to be to get to facebook.
Also are you using the full username @ symbol and everything ?   (example:  [email protected])
and also are you able to use those same credentials at facebook.com and log in?

  • Can't log out of facebook since 1/24/13

    I have the official Facebook app on both my iPhone and iPad. In the last few days, there must have been a change in the app because now when I choose the red "Log Out" button within the app, it doesn't Log Out, it only presents a screen that looks like this below (on both the iPhone 4S and iPad 2). It still shows you logged in, with a Continue button as a choice. There is no way to Log Out. I have tried deleting the app and re-installing it from the App store with the latest version. I have tried logging in to another account but when I log out of the other account, it still shows that my account is Logged in. Does anyone know what to do?

    After the following steps, should I be able to post a link to my Facebook timeline?
    1) Log out in Facebook app.
    2) In Settings, disable Facebook account access to Facebook app.  (Now the Facebook app shows the login form.  Don't login.)
    3) In Mobile Safari, clear cookies and data.
    4) In Mobile Safari, post a page to your Facebook timeline.
    I was expecting it fail or bring up a login form, but it successfully posted the link to the timeline.  The access token is still remembered somewhere.  Help is appreciated.
    [UPDATE: after typing up the above, googled for Facebook active sessions.  When I deleted all the sessions and tried sharing in the browser, it prompted me to enter the Facebook password in Settings, as expected.  Thought I'd post it here as it's related to the topic.]

  • After clearing cache and cookies, my same dropdown list keeps returning when I log in to Facebook.

    After clearing cache and deleting cookies, my same dropdown list keeps on returning whenever I log in to Facebook. I need to know how to delete login history.

    That data is called Form History

  • As of 3/30 when using the App for Facebook, when I log off of Facebook, it keeps me permanently logged into Facebook. If I use Safari to log into Facebook, I have no problem logging off. Is there a problem with the Facebook App??

    As of 3/30/13, when logging off of Facebook using the Facebook App, it will not log me out. It is now permanently keeping me logged in. No problem logging off of Facebook when I do not use the App. Is there anyone that can tell me why this is happening and what I need to do to Logout of Facebook. I like using the App for Facebook but I also want to be able to log off, I do not like to stay logged in.  Is there something different with the latest Apple software I downloaded a couple of weeks ago, IOS 6.1.3?

    it also could be something different, if you try google hangounts. change password and log out it still recieves notifications. its how apples handles the "channel" notification system for apps that recieve notifications or do backroung sync, and im sure at some point that security hole will be a hijack point.  i think its called XO auth. and is why it can maintain session even after an apperant logout
    if you go to the app and it shows you have logged out but are still recieving notifications then that is evidence of the bug.
    also look and find the option for "keep me logged in" i remember in the past that would allow a autologin after logout. also if the app does NOT save the logout status correctly in its "memory" the above refereced system will auto login you with the XO app authentication.
    if there really is no keep me logged in option. then what crh24 said, they designed it delibertly to keep you logged in. though i never remember a problem on my ios 6,. are you on ios 7, bunny hop?

    Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.
    * Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Private Browsing mode.
    * https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Private+Browsing
    * In [[Private Browsing]] mode all cookies are session cookies that expire if that session is ended, so websites won't remember you.
    * Do not use [[Clear Recent History]] to clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences"
    Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.

  • How can I keep logged in on Facebook even tho I've cleared everything?

    I've cleared all history, cookies, cache & still can't keep logged into facebook. Everytime I scroll down or click on something I get the rectangle with "must be logged in to facebook". I relog in and sometimes get the same message. It doesn't happen to me in IE.
    I'm using 3.6.12

    This should fix the issue:
    Special thanks to Roger Wilmut for providing the detailed instructions on the website below.
    1. Shut down Mail.  Next, deselect "iCloud Mail" in the iCloud preferences pane in System Preferences FIRST.  If not, it will automatically pre-populate the wrong p9X.mail.me.com server names again overwriting all your work.
    2. Now restart Mail and go to preferences.  If "iCloud" mail is still showing, select it and click on the "-" at the bottom to remove it.
    3. Now follow the instructions here:http://www.wilmut.webspace.virginmedia.com/notes/icloudmail.html (disregard that this is for Snow Leopard, it DOES work on Lion) paying attention to the use of the "option" key when needed to avoid Mail automatically "creating" the account and closing out the preferences window.
    4. Ensure the correct server names of "imap.mail.me.com and smtp.mail.me.com" are still there and close Mail preferences and now select "get mail".  It may prompt one last time for your iCloud password, enter it and you are done.
    Good Luck.

  • Safari update 5.1.4 does not solve logging out of Facebook

    After installing the new update for Safari (5.1.4), I am still being logged out of Facebook whenever I close my Mac.
    What is a reason for this? How can it be solved?
    I also have FileVault 2 enabled...

    Hi ...
    Right or control click the Safari app in your Applications folder then click Get Info.
    In the Get Info panel you'll see:  Open in 32-bit mode
    If that box is selected, deselect it.
    Quit then relaunch Safari for changes to take effect.
    Turning off the Lion "resume" feature may help also.
    Open System Preferences > General
    Deselect:  Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps
    Restart your Mac.

  • Logged in thru facebook now cant set username and password for PS3

    I signed up a year ago. Logged in thru facebook. Now i see a spotify app has been added to my PS3... Im trying to login but its asking for a username / password. I got to my account and am given a # of 126681961 as my user name and i attempt to activate a password, it says an email has been sent to the hotmail account associated with my facebook account but I have not recieved any email and have attempted mulitple times. How do I set my username and Password without all the frustration or by changing my FB info??? thank you

    I'm not sure about the status of that bug in 2.2.5, but it has been
    resolved in our internal 2.3 builds.
    I think that you can work around this problem by enumerating your
    persistent types in system.prefs instead of in the data store. See our
    documentation for more information on how to do this.
    Basically, if I recall correctly, the problem is when retrieving the
    list, but not when connecting to the data store for other purposes.

    has the error that exactly like Bug #76. When we leave the user name and
    password out of system.prefs, we get the error.
    Is this bug(#76) fixed for 2.2.5? And how can we work around it?--

  • Can't log or delete Facebook account from settings in ios 7

    Hello yesterday my sister wanted to unblock my mom from Candy crush so she deleted my facebook acount from settings so she can log with her account and use Candy Crush with her own profile. After that i deleted her account and wanted to put my own again, here is where the error started: when i put my mail / password for facebook and hit "return" a message appear "Error signing In , could not communicate with the server", even so i cant enter another email or retype my email or anything since in settings this message appear: "There was a problem accessing your account. Please reenter the password for <my facebook user name> " with the field for password below , also the delete button doesnt work. Every time i put the password the singning in error appear . Now i cant use any app that use facebook features which is really annoying since most online apps use facebook account to log in.  
    i have tryed:
    Deleting the app, which doesnt make sense since i don't need the app to log with facebook to another apps.
    How they solved in thie thread : https://discussions.apple.com/message/24292852#24292852
    Quit the .settings app and reset the iPad.Double click the Home button to show the screen with running and recently used apps. Each app icon will have a sample page above it. Flick up on the page (not the app icon) and the page will fly away and the app icon will disappear. This quits that app. Then reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

    Nothing has worked so far, i hope you guys fix this soon i cant use must of my apps right now :/ at least with facebook .
    PD: i can log in trough facebook app but no setting so i can't use my facebook in other apps.

    I have found a solution.
    You need to use Keychain Access on OS X. In the sidebar select iCloud. You can locate the entry by searching for the part after the @ in the email address of that entry. Right click it. Select "Delete". It will be deleted from that machine as well as any other device synced with iCloud keychain.
    I did this in Mavericks, but it should work on Yosemite as well.
    As far as I know there is yet no way to do this in iOS.
    I filed a radar as well rdar://18835323
    Hope this helps.

  • Cannot log out of Facebook properly on iOS 6.

    I've got iOS 6.0.1 on my iPad 2 and before the update I found logging out on Facebook perfectly fine.  However, after logging out with the update, the app says 'You are logged in as...' and below, I can press continue to proceed to my Facebook account.  I've looked at Settings to see if I can logout from there, but I can't find anything.  So is there a way I can make it so that I have to input my password to log in? It's quite an issue for me as multiple people use my iPad. 

    Found a fix! You must go to Settings, then to the Facebook settings page.  Here you can delete your account, but this only deletes it from the device (as verified when it asks you to confirm the decision, with something like 'Do you want to delete your account from this device' showing up in a small window).  Then, you are asked if you would like to merge your account or not.  I chose to merge, which took a few minutes to finish.  From then on I was asked my password when logging into Facebook.
