Trying to play Farmville/Frontierville and it goes to the game and just sits there and wont open

When I click on Farmville or Frontierville it takes me to the game area but does not load the game. It works fine with other browsers so why not Firefox?

Don't those games require Flash?
You either don't have it installed or it is disabled. IE uses a different version of Flash (ActiveX) than other popular browsers need - the Plugin version.

1.Download the Flash setup file from here:
Adobe Flash - Plugin version.
Save it to your Desktop.

2. Close Firefox using File > Exit
then check the Task Manager > Processes tab to make sure firefox.exe is closed,
{XP: Ctrl+Alt+Del, Vista: Shift+Ctrl+ESC = Processes tab}

3. Then run the Flash setup file from your Desktop.

  • On Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run the plugin installer as Administrator by starting the installer via the right-click context menu if you do not get an UAC prompt to ask for permission to continue (i.e nothing seems to happen).
