I have been playing Scrabble on Facebook for a while but suddenly it just blinks and doesn't open. It does open if I switch to Google Chrome.

Chosen solution

i do not know if i did it it or you fixed it but scrabble is working all i did was clear cookies so I am asuming it was firefox. thanks for the fix

is there something in about config that ineed to change for script errors ithink i may have changed something awhile back how do i chane it back i think it was in dev part

The only setting I can think of is the one to allow more time for slow scripts to run. I'm pretty sure that is not related to the very fast failure on Scrabble. Old article: Warning Unresponsive script - What it means and how to fix it.

In support - I want to say that nothing has helped with me either. I have tried all the offered solutions - and on 3 different devices. This must surely be an issue with firefox itself?

This could be related to the change in Firefox 69 that Flash can't be set to "Always Activate", only "Ask to Activate" is possible. A script on the page might not work properly with "Ask to Activate" selected and Firefox might not show the Lego block icon.

The change in Firefox 69 just means you'll have to activate Flash for a site on the first visit each session. You can't set Firefox to remember that forever. This article has the steps to activate Flash when needed: Why do I have to click to activate plugins?

Does Flash activate normally for you on Adobe's test page?

Do you recall the last time it worked normally? I'm trying to line it up with the update schedule:

  • Firefox 68.0.2 released: August 14th
  • Firefox 68.0.1 released: July 18th
  • Firefox 68.0 released: July 9th

68.02

This game could be a JavaScript game and not Flash based, so maybe check the Web Console for possible error messages.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
