Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Facebook website, when I enter my username and password and "log in", it doesn't allow me to get through. In Hotmail, the page doesn't open up at all.

In other sites, I don't have any problem at the moment.

I hope you can help me!

My Internet connection is by router (cable)

This has two reasonable answers that involve changing client-side configuration in Ubuntu. We should take that as strong evidence that this question is on topic. –  Eliah Kagan Oct 9 '12 at 8:07

The web browser may be blocking cookies.

Try to change the settings in the web browser to "accept all cookies."

This sounds like a problem with your cookie settings in your web browser. Not a problem with your internet service or connectivity.

To see if this is the problem, log out and log in as the Guest selectable from the login screen and attempt to log in via firefox from there.

Alternatively install an alternative browser and attempt to log in from for example; Chromium instead.

If you can sucessfully log in, then you must change the settings in your firefox browser to allow your sites to store cookies. If you don't have many bookmarks or important history you could just delete the .mozilla directory in your home folder (show hidden files first). Otherwise you should go into the profferences for firefox and allow cookies for those sites.

I'd also check to see if you have any extensions which could cause these issues.
