Ask a question siobhan - Last answered on Apr 3, 2013 at 11:09 PM by serpicodesiles
i have previously been able to load farmville via facebook but today it said unable to do this because flash player needs to be updated ive gone ahead and done this and it still doesnt work. it said to go to internet options and change the settings which I have done and it still doesnt work for farmville however every new link I click on on this site it asks me if I want to allow active x. can someone please help as this is driving me nuts and im stuck for ideas. thanks

I have not been able to get flashplayer working in Vista or Firefox and here is what fixed it for me.

In IE 8 I went to Tools and clicked Manage Addons and found adobe "disabled" for some dumb reason so I enabled it and as simple as that it now works....

In Firefox I redownloaded the program (note: pay attention to the download process because in Firefox you probably will have to "enable" the download by clicking on an enable button on the screen during the process to make sure you get the download.)

Hope this helps a few people :)

Try turning off the Active X Filterring option under the Tools Menu.

I am also having the same problem. When I go onto farmville I cant get passed the loading page. The bar gets to half full then my web browser says 'done'. I have tried this on facebook, then on google chrome, firefox etc etc. I have changed internet settings, updated flash, java etc. Tried turning off firewall. Maybe its a sign that I spend too much time on farmville? But if anyone has any ideas please let me know. I dont think it is farmville/facebook as I can get on it on other computers. This has only happened since facebook decided to change its layout again!!!!

I was having the same issue but fixed it. Here's how..

1) Download Flash Player directly:

2) Save it, don't run it

3) Close all your browsers and install the saved file

NOTE: The above link is for a Windows file, if you're using another OS visit to download the installation file directly.

To simplify just use another browser,

I will advise you to use google chrome!

I had the same exact explored & firefox...i turned windows firewall off & everything works fine now.

i am using an old pc which I build myself in 2004 and has a NVidia MX440-AGP8X graphics card and I am using an HP LP2065 monitor. I used to have the same problem and now I run my monitor speed at 120Hz. the problem of continous flashing is gone and I can play the farmville or any other game in full screen mode. my graphics resolution is 1600x1200 which may not be available from other graphics cards.

try to run your monitor on its highest speed!!!!!

Yeah, there's something wrong with Zynga and there is something seriously wrong with the current version of flash player. Here are some of the links I have been to and NONE of the fixes work. I even rolled back to Flash 9 with no luck.

Yoville won't work. Rollercoaster won't allow for invites, adding neighbors, etc. so I can't advance past the tutorial because I can't add friends to work the rides. But it's not just those games... Restaurant city won't load. FarmTown won't load the neighbors page or the gifting link for FarmTown friends.

I don't know how much is Zynga, how much is Facebook, how much are updates, etc... but I suspect it's all in the Flash Player. Mostly because it does funky things and has other glitches. (Screen flashes randomly. With Rollercoaster the sad face to upgrade flashes up while the app loads at the same time. Profile pics won't load in FarmTown for neighbors. People randomly disappear. It crashed my Firefox because I was click on fields that it wouldn't plow... crashed it twice today! Firefox wasn't one to crash until I updated the Flash Player...)

Here's a whole thread where people describe the same problems. Just know you're not alone! ;^)

I am having the same problem and it does not matter if you are using IE or Google Chrome, I have the problem with both of these Browsers; I'm not going to add Firefox and do this step with one, another step with another, etc...I have to agree, eah time I update Adobe, some really irritating issues come up. One time, videos would not play, another time only videos on Youtube would not play but they would play on places like MySpace etc...I kept trying to avoid updating Flash because I knew there would be an issue however, I could not keep "holding it off" because some things would not display until I clicked on the update. This is all weird but mostly annoying. So far, the crash only happens when I try to maximize the screen.

I also went directly to the adobe site, downloaded latest version of flash player and it seems to have resolved the issue with farmville, and farmtown!!!

I didn't read every post on this page, but from what I have read I can see that only one person has come close to telling what the problem really is...

This comes from Zynga (you can find it just below the Farmville menu line, i.e. "Play, Gift, Neighbors, Invite, etc." :

"Howdy farmers! We are resolving reported LOADING issues and have TURNED OFF WITHER, so your crops and farms are safe. Fix coming soon!"

Apparently it's not woking. :(P

Some please please please! I stuck in Korea and just want to play a game here!

Don't turn your firewall off, people will hack into your computer and destroy it. I would recommend getting rid of McAffe because it slows down your computer so much. I'd recommend getting Windows Live One Care for an anti-virus.

Very odd situation.

Doesn't work on my IE via Facebook, but does on chrome. But ..... if you go direct to it does work ok there? WTF, must be something to do with Facebook perhaps?

I'll still try to find out why, so GF stops moaning .....

I can not get on my farm..I can click on Neighbors and see all of my neighbors, but can not visit any farms, including my own. The only thing I am able to do is send gifts.

I have reinstalled Flash Player and disabled cookies and nothing will help to let me go onto Farmville. How does this happen, if most of my other neighbors are able to play just fine?
JABCAB- Jan 6, 2010 at 10:06 PM
I can't get on either. I'm assuming it's something with FarmVille given the message they are showing and the fact that I can't get on but both my sons can, using the same computer. At least our crops won't wither while they are fixing it. We'll just have to be patient I think, unfortunately.
