Smile Why I am getting a basic html page on facebook log in screen?

Hello! New to Linux..(4 months)Not really computer savvy, but have good understanding. Starting to learn about code, scripts, etc! But long way to go! Love the system! Really stable! Almost no bugs! Reliable! Had no real problems up until today! Tried to log in to Facebook (Firefox) and all I can get is a basic html page! It includes the log-in fields but when I try to log in..I get nothing! Can log in as guest and all ok! Although I cannot access my files, or anything else on my Desktop! I have researched loads over the last 4 months about computers...and while I feel I have learned a lot about infrastructure, programming, history and terms! I still feel a million miles away from basic knowledge!! What should I do, People?

It sounds like scripts or content are being blocked by your browser, but the twist is that you state you can login to facebook as a guest. I've never logged in as a guest. Does your browswer have add-ons for blocking scripts, blocking ads; stuff like that? I use No Script for Firefox and when I visit a page it gives me a menu allowing me to allow scripting selectively, and do so temporarily so I can choose to make things permanent if I feel it needs to be. Do you have any protective add-ons or protective settings which you've made to Firefox to disallow bad content? Those are good things, I wouldn't disable them, I'd recommend that you learn the minimum you need to allow which will get pages like that working.

Thumbs up Solved!!

Thank you for your help! I do have NoScript and Adblocker! They are great add-ons! I checked both and indeed it was the ad-blocker! I have solved the problem! Thank you very much for your suggestion, rtmistler!!!
