Hi,

This is possibly due to the phising filter in the IE 8, to resolve this issue follow the below steps.

Add the facebook.com in to trusted sites loaction, and disabling the add ons in the browser.

1) Check for your internet security settings, or activex or java settings
2)you may try to access the links, without any add-on's to verify if it works fine.
Click the Start button,
Click All Programs and click Accessories
Cclick System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
Verify if it works fine and if it works, here's what you can do:

Disable it. If an add-on causes repeated problems, disable it by using Add-on Manager in Internet Explorer.


Report it. When prompted, you might want to report the problem to Microsoft. The report is anonymous and requires nothing from you except your permission. These reports are used to improve our products and to encourage other companies to update and improve theirs.


3) You may also try to optimize Internet explorer on your computer and later verify if you are able to access the links.
Access the link below and follow the steps to optimize Internet explorer.

I suggest you use internet explorer 8 and it is recommend by facebook.com. I having no problem with playing farmville as of now. Go to microsoft or to websearch to download free internet explorer 8 installer and install it to your computer. But don't download the toobars attached to that installer.

I hope it help you.

Have internet explorer 8 flashplayer 10 shock wave I still can't load farmville in facebook nor in zynga. The dowloading bar keeps stucking almost halfway. I did cleare my cache, internet history...


Zynga recommends using Google Chrome for Farmville. If you want to continue with Internet Explorer you need to update it, your version is seriously out of date. I don't know your operating system so I will post a link with several options. If your operating system is relatively current I would update to Internet Explorer 11.

1. Please consider using Internet Explorer 8 and Adobe shock wave for solving the problem. After installation, please clean up your registry. This should fix it up.

When trying to open farmville game on my facebook i received DONE BUT ERROR ON PAGE


Hi,

There have been numerous complaints about Farmville in the last week. You will just have to keep trying until they get it fixed. I am sure Facebook is aware of the problem.

In the meantime, you may want to try downloading the Firefox browser and see if it works any better. You can get it at www.mozilla/firefox/

Thanks for using Fixya.

When loading farmville I am getting a "done but with errors on page" message and it wont load


Hi,

It sounds like you will need a Adobe Flash Player update for IE8.

Install Adobe flash player here (link below) and try logging onto Facebook to use farmville.

Why can't I connect to farmville I keep getting the same message "redirect loop"


You need to update your flashplayer. Go to www.farmville.com. Your farm will load. Go to the bottom of the page where you will see "if you are having trouble seeing Farmville, update your flashplayer by clicking HERE". Worked like a charm for my husband's account.
