Default Facebook Mobile links don't load in BB browser

Please Login to Remove!

When I click on a link in a Facebook Mobile notification, my BB browser opens and looks like it's trying to load the page. Then, after about 30 seconds, I receive an error message "A problem occurred while trying to render the page." I click OK and then I'm brought to a blank browser screen with just the BB logo and no activity. Is there a setting I need to change? The "Confirm | Ignore" links in Friend requests in Facebook Mobile work, but they don't need to open a browser window. But links to wall comments or links to the confirmations that I'm now Friends with someone don't work. Any thoughts?

Default I was having a similar problem.

After doing some researching on the internet to no avail, I decided to check the browser configuration settings on my wife's Curve since everything seemed to be working properly for her (to get to there I pressed the menu button while in my browser then went to Options/Browser Configuration). I noticed that she did not have the 'Support Style Sheets' box checked in her settings, and so I unchecked the box on mine and everything seems to be working fine now.

To be honest, I have no idea what that setting controls and whether I've created a new problem somewhere else, but it seemed to take care of the linking problem I was having with Facebook.

I hope that helps.
