It looks like you are facing issues with different browser. Let’s analyze and identify the cause of the issue.

1.       What is the exact issue that you are facing?

2.       Which is the current default browser on the computer?

3.       Are you using Internet Explorer? Which is the version of Internet Explorer installed on the computer?

4.       Do you get any error messages?

5.       Is this issue confined to any specific websites?

6.       Have you checked the issue using Google chrome?

7.       Are you aware of making any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

I would like to know more information on this issue so that I can guide you in the right direction.

I would suggest you to check if there is any proxy server installed on the computer.

Why can't I view some websites?

"I have internet explorer and google chrome on pc. which delaults will run my pc properly?"

Firefox ? No, really, browsers are largely subjective. A lot of people swear by Chrome, but
a lot of people swear at Chrome. The same with IE and Firefox, but I've used Firefox for
about nine years.

Other considerations are your internet connection stability and speed.
Try running Speed Test ( type that name into your search engine ) to verify if you are getting
good speeds. Do this after the browser drops out as the internet server you are connected to
may slow down during peak periods.
For example, my broadband speed will reach 20+ but will drop to just under 5 between
6-8 PM on occasion. This is still a high speed and not likely to drop out,  just an example of
how much a connection can vary.
You would have to get down near dial-up speeds (or should we say slows) before having
drop outs due to lack of speed, in most cases.
The other possibility is quality of the line from the exchange to your house.
Old copper cables can also cause dropouts

From what I've read Facebook has frequent problems, probably for similar reasons, but in this
case it would be their own servers straining under the load of heavy traffic.

Also be sure to have Adobe Flash and Shockwave  and other browser 'plug-ins' up to date. -

Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player

Adobe - Adobe Shockwave Player

You can find out more about 'plug-ins' in your browsers help tab.
