Certain games on Facebook no longer work since installing FF6,in particular-Zynga games

Posted

i installed FF6 after trying to update the flash on a game on FaceBook-noticed the new look FF and thought "great",so installed! however, not sure how deep the problem goes because i only play a few games on FB, but elements of these games no longer work- mainly the other players details. eg- Scrabble Worldwide wont load at all,just get a flickering screen, Empires and Allies wont acknowledge any other players/invites etc. i'm guessing theres something missing from the new FF6... can anyone help me?!

Chosen solution

-> Create a New Profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

-> Basic Troubleshooting: Make a New Profile

-> If that New Profile works then you can recover your Bookmarks and Passwords from the Old Profile.

-> Recovering important data from an old profile

Check and tell if its working.

mha007-many thanks for your reply,but still getting same issues despite trying your solutions- another thing i'm getting is a box that flashes on the screen when trying to gift someone in a game-it appears in the centre of the screen,nothing in it,and its gone in less than a second,but repeatedly flashes on and off,faster than i can read what is in the details bit! am relieved i'm not the only one with this problem though! the key issue on the empires and allies game is that when time comes to select someone from my friends to invite/gift, the selection box which normally contains all my friends names is totally blank.
