Hello i have a little issue, the director has requested that he has access to facebook while the whole company is blocked, if i add him to the cfs exclusion list i am allowing him accesss to everything and that potentially can be dangerous. Is there a way to allow him access to just facebook? on this firewall? thanks

You can just allow him to the IP address of facebook. Use nslookup to check the IP address and go ahead.

On the Firewall > Access Rules page. In the Add Rule page in the General tab, select Allow | Deny | Discard from the Action list to permit or block IP traffic. From here you can select the source and the destination and allow your director's IP to access the IP of Facebook

adding to nasirsh's comment, you can create an address object that is the diretor's mac address.  this way you don't have to worry about static IPs etc.

go to Firewall > Access Rules.  It should default to the Matrix view.  If not, that's the easiest way to filter out ONLY what you want.  In Matrix view, you'll see zones accross the top and left hand side.  Click the corresponding LAN > WAN intersection.  LAN being the left and WAN being the top of the matrix.  If you've run the public server wizard or manually created a rule, then you'll see it here.  If not, then you'll need to add a new rule.  You'll need to create an address object representing the facebook IP addresses.  You might have to create multiple address objects and an address group.  The source would be an address object representing the mac address of the user.  You can leave service any and specify the interface of the WAN, X1.  When you create the rule, you'll get the chance to create an address object.  The add wizard will not let you create multiple object and address group.  You have to got to Network > Address Object to do that.  Then, you can create the firewall rule.
