Default Facebook login problems

So, every time I log out of Facebook, I have to change my password before I can log back in.

When I try to log in it just reloads the facebook.com page and does nothing. When I try to login using the https://m.facebook.com page it says "Sorry, your account is temporarily unavailable. Please log in to www.facebook.com from your computer and follow the instructions given."

I have tried clearing cookies, using different web browsers (IE, FF, Chrome), and different computers.

Any ideas?

No, getting rid of FB is not a solution. This isn't killing me - I could live without FB, but it is annoying because I can't seem to fix it.

Edit:
It started working again this morning for no good reason.

Maybe the virus wants to see what the passwords you commonly use so it makes you enter new ones every time.

Just refresh the page and it should be fine. It happens if the account is inactive for a long time.

EDIT:

On reading the error carefully. I don't know.

Also, holy necro!
