There are many reasons for people to have trouble loading their farm in FarmVille. In general, I think people get this problem because of poor network connectivity. Be sure you have a solid, reliable, hard-wired connection to the Internet before you do anything. If you are sure that you have a good connection to the Internet and you still have trouble, then you will need to do some basic troubleshooting. Steps for troubleshooting are:

  • Clear your cache.
  • Verify that JavaScript is enabled. .

    What do xpcom mean when trying to get on to internet site as it keeps comeing up cannot load xpcom

    Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. (XPCOM problems require a reinstall) This means you remove Firefox program files (not any bookmarks etc. in your profile folder) and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
    Note: You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
    1. Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from and save the setup file to your computer.
    2. After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
    3. Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
      • Windows:
        • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
        • C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.

    Cannot load XPCOM for Mozilla firefox

    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

    My problem is on my desktop computer. Every time I load Firefox it comes up with an error console.

    1. Try starting Firefox in Safe Mode. (Start -> All Programs -> Mozilla Firefox -> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode)).
    2. If it loads properly, then one of your add-ons is causing the error. If you are still getting the error, reinstall Firefox.
    3. Disable each add-on one by one, taking note of which add-on caused the problem.
    4. Remove that add-on and restart Firefox.

    Done with errors

    The only better solution is to upgrade your browser.

    Loading facebook with errors in it, is usually fix by removing temporary internet files and cookies from the browser's Option menu. If this does not work, it is best to upgrade and use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. Mozilla Firefox loads facebook page and games faster than any other browser.

    Download this browser to see the difference.
    1. Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3

    Please give me a good rating after the page of your facebook load up completely.

    Thank you for using Fixya.
