My mom uses a powermac g5 as her main computer because all she does is use the internet and email. She was telling me the other day that she couldnt sign into facebook. I went and checked and there's no login bar at the main screen, it just says sign up. Here's a screenshot: 405912

If you haven't already done so, you may need to enable JavaScript in your browser's Preferences. Otherwise, don't know what the problem is.

Not a Javascript issue. Try emptying the cache, or resetting Safari.

Or, especially if she is used to the Safari interface, this.

And this may be better than Tenfourfox on Leo. (http://code.google.com/p/aurorafox/)

I'm using Safari 5.0.6 and it is very fast. Which Safari version are you using?

You could give a try to 'Fluid', create the 'facebook app' and put it in the dock. It is quite fast. If the login bar is not showing still it means there's something going on with your mac.

No problem on my quad G5 with :

Safari 5.0.6, Webkit r129056, TenTourFox 17 & IE 5.2. If you already reseted Safari, I don't why the page isn't rendered correctly.

Clearly this is specific to the computer in question, so I don't think any more browser tests are needed.
