Why do farmville 2 keeps crashing?


You might try changing your browser (Firefox, IE etc) also see if you have the latest versions. It also could be stuff on your computer. You might want to also clear the cache and even do a complete virus scan if possible.

Firefox crase every 15 minuts plz fix 4 us


Mozilla's Firefox Internet browser is one of the most popular browsers in the world, second only to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

As of April 2011, Firefox held a 21.63 percent share of the worldwide browser market. Unfortunately, problems with plug-ins, websites and general operating system incompatibility occasionally cause Firefox to become unstable and crash.

To prevent these crashes from occurring again, the cause of the crash needs to be identified so an effective fix can be implemented.

Take note of the action or circumstance that lead to the crash.
Pay particular attention to the timing of the crash and whether it occurred while launching Firefox, when trying to view a specific website, when attempting to download a file or at a seemingly random time.


Repeat the action that caused the crash to see whether it causes Firefox to crash again. Some crashes are caused by memory problems or other external factors and may be a one-time occurrence.

Repeating the action determines whether the crash was caused by errors within Firefox or if there were other factors involved.

Hold the "Shift" key down on your keyboard and relaunch Firefox.
This will launch the application in "Safe Mode," disabling all plug-ins and themes.

Repeat the action that caused the crash; if the problem was caused by a plug-in or theme then the crash will not occur this time.

Open a new Firefox tab and type "about:crashes" without the quotation marks into the navigation bar.
Press "Enter" to load the Firefox crash log listing.

Select the most recent entry and scroll through it to find the name of the plug-in, theme or other component that caused the crash.

Disable or update the component to remove the cause of the crash.
This information should be contained in the "Details>Signature" or "Details>Crash Reason" sections.

Open the Tools menu in Firefox and select "Add-ons" if you cannot resolve the crash problem by disabling or updating a plug in.
Scroll through the list of installed browser add ons, disabling add ons one at a time in an attempt to correct the error.

If the crash occurs when trying to view certain types of content, such as streaming video or other media files, focus in disabling add-ons that are related to that type of content.

Open the Help menu and select the "Troubleshooting Information" option if crashes occur only when attempting to download files.

Locate the "Application Basics" entry, then click the "Open Containing Folder" link to open the folder containing your Firefox profile.

Exit Firefox, then select the "downloads.sqlite" file in your profile folder and delete it.
This removes your download history, eliminating any problems with the file and allowing Firefox to create a new file when it launches again.

Update Firefox.
Some crashes are caused by problems within the Firefox program itself, such as problems with specific operating systems or crashes that occur only in new Firefox releases.

Updates may contain fixes to these Firefox crashes, eliminating the crash problem once the browser update is installed.

Try deleting the FarmVille app. Next install the app again. If it keeps crashing after that then I reccomend maybe deleting some apps. My iPhone did the same exact thing. After I deleted some apps it has not crashed since. If deleting some apps also does not work then you possibly your iPhone is getting old. My iPod had that same exact problem last year. I got a new iPod and the app have never crashed. I hope this helps!

Adobe plug in keeps crashing when playing Zynga on facebook. Since this started, also noticed some programs seem slugish. whats wrong?


If you are using Firefox profiles to work with Adobe Reader/Acrobat 9 in the browser, you may encounter a browser crash. This can occur when you have a PDF open in one profile and a normal HTML page in another profile in Firefox, and then you close the Firefox window with the PDF, firefox crashes

This is a bug in Adobe Reader/Acrobat 9 and is fixed in version 9.3 onwards.

Firefox is crashing


Firefox crashes can be caused by incompatible extensions or themes, issues with hardware acceleration and the drivers on your system, problems with your Firefox settings and other issues. If Mozilla Firefox is crashing every time you reopen it, you can troubleshoot Firefox with its safe mode, update the software on your system or create a new Firefox profile.

Safe Mode b> Mozilla Firefox includes a safe mode startup option. Firefox doesn't use extensions, themes, hardware acceleration or your custom settings when you start in safe mode. You can start Firefox in safe mode by pressing and holding the "Shift" key while clicking the "Firefox" shortcut. Click "Continue in Safe Mode" when the dialogue box appears. If Firefox doesn't crash when you start in safe mode, the problem is with your Firefox configuration. b> Reset Firefox b> If Firefox starts without crashing in safe mode, you can make some of the safe mode changes permanent. Close Firefox and restart it in safe mode again. Use the dialogue box that appears to select one of the options such as "Disable All Add-ons" or "Reset All User Preferences to Firefox Defaults" and click "Make Changes and Restart" to restart Firefox in normal mode with the changes. After restarting, you can re-enable extensions and themes one by one and install updated extensions that may fix the problem. Update b> If Firefox crashes safe mode, updating Firefox and other software on the system may fix the problem. You can download and install a new version of Firefox from Mozilla.com if it won't start. You should also update Windows from Windows Update, update any browser plug-ins such as Adobe Flash and update for your antivirus, firewall and other security programs. The crash may be fixed with newer versions of the software. b> Profiles b> Firefox stores your settings in a profile directory. It normally creates only one profile directory, but you can create an additional profile and start Firefox with that profile instead of using safe mode. Close Firefox if it's open, click "Start," type "Firefox.exe -ProfileManager" into the search box in the Start menu and press "Enter" to access the profile manager window. Click "Create Profile" to create a new profile, provide a name for the new profile and click "Start Firefox." Firefox opens with a fresh profile; you can start your old profile from the profile manager window.

It keeps crashing how do i stop it?someon said to uninstall and then reinstall.I don't know how to do that


Yeah i get the same thing, i just send an error report to mozilla every time.

The good thing about Mozilla is that it saves your pages that you had open. So when it crashes it restores what you had and isn't that much of a problem.

Just wondering, does yours crash everytime you use it? Mainly, can you use it at all or does it crash so much that you can't.

Firefox crashes


Which version of Firefox? I've had issues with crashes in FF on version 3.0.5. If you're on V3.0.5, uninstall it and install an older version.

Web Server Crashes on port 80.


A couple of questions for you...
1) What do you mean by 'crash'? How do you know its crashed?
2) Can you look in the Windows Event Viewer to see if there are any warning/error messages in the Application or System logs around the time of the starting or crashing of your web site on port 80? If so, anything that suggests the issue. If you don't understand the errors, try posting some of them here.
3) Is there any other web server running on port 80? If your running Internet Information Server, open the Internet Information Server Manager (mmc) console and click on "Web Sites" and it should list all the sites in the right pane. If you have anything 'running' on port 80, it will conflict.
4) Are you running Apache or any other web server on the system? If so, you're going to need to look at those configurations as well.
5) How about any other applications that might have a built in web server?

Let me know.
