    This started happening about a week ago:

    I went on facebook and tried to login, but everytime i keep getting this error message: Safari can’t open the page.
    Safari can’t open the page “” because it couldn’t establish a secure connection to the server “”.

    this happens everytime I try to login, and its getting really annoying. I tried other mac browsers and i still get the same error message of some sort. What do I need to change in my settings or whatever to fix this?

    Do you have your firewall turned on?

    Go into System Prefs -> Security -> Firewall. Check to see if "Allow all incoming connections" is checked.

    This sometimes happens to me. I just reset my wireless router and it fixes it.

    @ home.
    Facebook has been having problems in the last week. Myself, I have gotten that error around three times in the past week or two. I use Firefox if that changes something though.

    I've tried using Firefox and Camino and I've gotten the same or similar error message.

    silly question- but are you even connected to the internet? sometimes my wireless router craps out and i get that message also... when you get that error, can you view any other websites?..

    does your computer have security turned on?
    this happens to me as well and I have determined that it is caused by parental controls wont work either

    any website that requires authentication and connection to a secure server wont work under certain parental control settings

    If you have not solved this yet.....

    I just experienced this same problem myself, and I was very frustrated, but after surfing the web for a long time, and messing around with my Preferences, I just managed to fix this within this hour.

    So first, do you have Parental Controls on your account?
    (I do and I had to change some stuff on there)

    Second, go to Safari>preferences>security
    Then go to Accept Cookies, and change that to ALWAYS
    Above the cookies settings, make sure that enable plugins, java, and javascript are all checked aswell.

    Then, go to System Preferences>Security>FireWall
    Then make sure that "ALLOW ALL INCOMING CONNECTIONS" is checked.

    I am not really sure which of these changes was the one that worked, but what's done is done!

    Good Luck!
