The enter your name and a friends name section does not come up

Hi,
You need to be logged out of your other facebook account to get to the screen.

It looks like this:

If you can access by the link try another web browser like firefox

It is happening because your web browser remembers your facebook log in.

Please reply on this question. If you want to delete the account you will first need to reset the password so you have access to the account. You need to prove ownership of this account before you can delete it. To permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log in to the account you want to delete and then make a request here: http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account

I can not get into the account because I do not know the password and everything you told me to do is not working
Expert:  Chris L. replied 5 years ago.
What is the problem you are running into when trying to reset the password? You will need to get into that account to delete it.

I can not get into the account because I do not know the password. It stops me right there and does not allow me to open that Facebook account so I can delete it.
