      Same questions as for Theresa above: Has this been resolved in the meantime and which browser are you using?

      Have you tried to clear cache and cookies? Have you tried to update Flash? Have you tried to get rid of some unused browser extensions?

      Please post a new question in case the problem persists. Good luck!

        It is persisting with me. Every browser I use, every game I try to play on FB, especially CastleVille, FarmVille, Mistwood, everything! :( I have Windows XP on my desktop, 1.99GB RAM (don't know if that matters not sure what it is) 2.80GHz,......I usually use Google Chrome, everything is updated, I have un-installed and re-installed til I'm sick, I have cleared cache, cleared FlashPlayer Cache, done everything they say to do but yet I still cannot play one game on FB that requires Flash!! I am soooo frustrated with it, please, please help!

          Do you have any browser add-ons that block flash?
          Have you tried using another browser?

      Have you resolved this issue in the meantime? What browser are you using?

      You could try to clear cookies and cache in your browser and update the Flash plugin. Maybe also try closing some open tabs or uninstall browser plugins you are using. That's all I can think of.

      If none of this works, please post a new question and let us know what browser you are using. Thank you!

    I un-installed chrome because of flash crashes. I have a Vista running XP. IE seems to run face book ok, but could be better! What is a better browser?

    Check if the problem presists in other browsers as well, if it does, update or reinstall your flash player.
