Websites (especially facebook) fail to load

I'm experiencing a weired problem. Facebook is not loading on my computer while most of the sites are working. Some sites are loading partially or taking eternity. I'm using Arch+Xfce with Chromium and Firefox. Both browsers are affected. Everything works fine in Windows 7. So don't tell me my internet is broken. I have even tried re-installing Arch but the problem persists.
I also tried clearing the browsers' caches but that only helped load facebook once. Once I logged in to Facebook, I couldn't go anywhere (stuck on feed page). Browsers show 'waiting for ....' for eternity.
Is someone out there who could help me?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

I think Arch'ers are geeks.

Hopefully someone will answer that has both installed, and successfully the meantime..

Try some trial and error?

*** backup your bookmarks and copy your saved user-names/passwords if you wish before proceeding ***
Remove both, and reinstall one, and see if you have the same issue(s)?

Create a new user for testing and test using that account, this eliminates any problems with stale configuration files. If the problem still persists then it's something else.
