Computer is freezing only on one website....

Hi all, as you can probably tell by my handle, I know very little about computers other than how to turn them on/off and how to get online. Yesterday, my AcerAspire 5532 (runs on Windows 7) did something strange. I was on Facebook earlier in the day (using probably an old IE) and everything was fine, went to other sites, hung around online, the usual, then several hours later tried to get back on Facebook.
The browser window shut off, my desktop appeared, and the cursor/everything else was frozen. I left it for a while but it didn't correct itself. I thought it was a fluke, so I turned it off, turned it back on, opened Windows normally, and it did the same thing. I downloaded Google Chrome, and this time the browser window stays open but everything freezes. EVERY other site I visit is fine, it's just Facebook that freezes it on both browsers.
Two questions, really: 1) HOW do I fix this, if I can?
and 2), why would this just start all of a sudden? one of my Googled answers said it was something about internet options, but I didn't change anything between it working and it not.....any help would be appreciated!
