PfSense Not Displaying Facebook Images in Mobile App



  • I'm in the process of making the switch from Smoothwall to pfSense.  I've made a separate box so I can still switch back and forth between the two.  The question I have is pretty straight forward but I can't seem to figure out why when I use a pretty much out of the box pfSense setup, I can't get the images and videos to load in the facebook app in any of my mobile devices.  Profile pictures don't even want to load unless they seem to be cached on my device.  Normal web browsing seems to work just fine.  Facebook in a desktop interface works just fine as well.  I should mention that I am using squid for web caching if that would make a difference.



  • Bump.

    Uninstalled squid and even reinstalled pfsense.  Still can't figure out what's wrong.  If I switch back to smoothwall or switch to the mobile network, there is no issue and my Facebook feed loads properly.  The issue is present across all of my android devices using the facebook app.

    There was another thread with almost identical symptoms. If I recall it was an IPv6 issue, Android was attempting to use it for some sites.
