Hi! I've had a problem that has been bothering me for a while (since several OS versions ago). When my MacBook wakes from sleep, I can resume surfing on my open tabs on Safari except for Facebook. It will simply not work. The page doesn't refresh or it will turn blank. I have to hit refresh and wait, sometimes for 5-10 minutes until the tab tells me it is not connected to the Internet, and then I can hit refresh one more time and the page works correctly after that. Since the problem didn't get fixed by upgrading the OS or Safari, I have not idea what to do.

thank you!

I'm using a Late 2013 MBP, 16 GB of RAM, SSD and using Wifi and my system is up to date.

Its look like that your browser crash when your Mac in sleep mode. Sometime its create problem to activate. So you can tr to restart your browser and again login to Facebook account.

Only your Facebook tab has a problem? That's weird. Does this happen in other browsers (like Chrome) or only Safari? Try clearing your browser cache.

Yes only the facebook tab. I should have added that every facebook tabs are behaving the same way, and it doesn't solve the problem if I reopen them or if I open a new window! I clear the cache regularly and the problem reappears even after restart (it will work the first time after the restart but as soon as the computer sleeps, it returns).
