Problems with hotmail and facebook


I have a router with squid that was running ok until this last week. Now, users are unable to check their emails on After the user enters it login information the site just hangs on "Waiting for". I don't know what had happened. We haven't changed any configuration at all. The server was running ok for about 1 year and now all over a sudden things are just not normal.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Have you checked the system logs or squid logs to see if there is anything out of the normal?

Everything looks normal. Is just squid that might be causing the problems.

After upgrading to squid 3.1.9, suggested by others, I had to disable squid in order for hotmail and facebook to work properly on our network. I still would like to use squid to save some bandwidth but, clients are calling about it everyday.
