I am having this same problem. Before the updates, the Adobe Flash player NEVER crashed in Firefox (it did in Google Chrome all the time) and now it's crashing in all my favorite games....Farmville, Frontierville, Yoville, and Treasure Isle. It doesn't seem to be effecting the less-detailed Zynga games, such as Mafia Wars or Vampire Wars; and I can go into more detailed games that aren't Zynga and they seem to work fine too. I am not 100% sure what exactly the problem is, or who is causing it because I had a Firefox update, and then an Adobe update to the 10.1 beta. So I'm not sure if it's one or the other, or both of them put together. I have uninstalled/reinstalled the flash player so many times my mind is numb, and even tried to find the one I had prior to this new 10.1 and nothing has worked. I even did what that link Chris posted to do, and I thought it had worked at first...I actually got to go into my Farmville and Treasure Isle for a little bit, then it turned around and crashed again. This is literally driving me crazy trying to figure it all out.....and it upsets me that everything was fine one day, then after some updates, everything is messed up. And it's just my luck that it effected some of the games I like to play the most.

Question owner

Since this seems to be a universal problem with Foxfire and not an isolated incident with an individual's computer . . . it must be a Foxfire issue. I too was fine until the updates - now Treasure Isle is crashing all the time and FarmVille will crash occasionally when I try to visit other farms or go to the gift request section. These are my favorite games too and I wish someone would come up with a solution!

Question owner

well i did exactly what the link said that chris posted and havent had a problem since...i do feel however that we all need to email firefox so that they fix this issue

Same here. I can play all my games on FB but not Frontierville. I have updated everything. I have been playing Frontierville for weeks. So what the heck is going on?

Question owner

DiDi, I did the same and it seems to be working. Thanks Chris!

Question owner

Just an FYI - I switched over to my IE browser just to see what would happen. My treasure isle island loaded everything except my jewel tree but at least I was able to play the game. Looks like a compatibility problem between Zynga and Firefox. Think it happened when they enhanced the site.

Question owner

I am having the same problems as every one else,only since firefox updated yesterday . None of the games now play ie frontierville, farmville and others.

Question owner

Woot! think Chris's suggestion worked! This was driving me nuts, thank you!

Question owner

Ditto on the all of the above however happens when I also want to look at news stories...everything Flash related, not just Zynga related. Tried FF Support and got no where. This is a universal issue that FF need to fix or advise everyone what the solution is...before we all go bald and mind numb and use up all our download allowance with the constant reinstalling. I love Firefox but this is enough to make me seriously reconsider going back to IE. Not happy.

Question owner

Thanks Chris this problem has annoyed me for 2 days coz now my friends are beating me! But ur link has done the job and it now works. Thanks again Chris ur a life saver.

Question owner

My thanks too...it worked just wish everyone had been told what to do. Cheers

Question owner

Same issues when on Farmville, Treas Island and Frontierville!

I had this same problem with 3.6.4 and crashing flash. Try right clicking on the flash object (before it crashes) and then choose settings. Uncheck hardware acceleration and then click close.

Doing this seemed to make my flash, especially the flash facebook games, run much better and act less like they are struggling to run. I also haven't had a flash crash since.

Firefox constantly crashes on Facebook when I am in the game Petville.
