This is an onion address. Ordinarily configured Firefox will not recognize
it as such and simply generate a DNS request. As per IETF RFC 7686,
"Applications that do not implement the Tor protocol SHOULD generate
an error upon the use of .onion and SHOULD NOT perform a DNS lookup."
So your Firefox is performing appropriately.
To go to the onion address for FaceBook you should use Tor Browser.
