    antech, Your post doesn't make any sense. The poster has Windows 7 64-bit. Firefox is a 32-bit program.

    To the poster, have you tried reinstalling Flash? If so, what happens?

    Go here to see what version of Flash is installed.

    Sometimes Flash needs to be completely removed and reinstalled. I've had to do it a couple of times.

    Sorry for the post DoubleHelix, but I have personally seen many people running 64 bit windows and having problems with Flash player.
    On my friends PC,
    I have installed Windows 7 x64 and he runs Firefox x32 very smoothly.
    The compatibility for running 32bit apps is very great and has significantly improved in windows 7.
    So,I just recommended him to do so since I have some experience with these kind of things.
    Internet Explorer (the 32bit browser) which is by default installed with x64 windows, has many issues with Flash Player.
    The system is detected as x64 and the x64 version of flash player is installed by it whereas the browser is 32 bit.
    This was just a simple suggestion from my side.

    NOTE DOUBLEHELIX:
    The poster said in his last sentence that he tried reinstalling (I assume flash player) with no luck

    Farmville/Youtube works fine on my x54 Win 7 using FF 32bit. 32 bit IE works fine as well.
    antech is right about 64 bit windows and 32 bit programs.

    Firefox is a 32-bit program which is why I had no idea what you were talking about in your post.

    Hi praer4life,

    Couple of suggestions:

    1. Clear all Cookies and Temporary Internet Files of the first browser you tried accessing farmville. Close the browser, reopen and try playing the game.
    2. When you want to play farmville, you may disable Firewall. But imp is that u need to turn Firewall on after the game.

    All the best!!

    Sorry Double Helix,
    but you have much greater experience than me and I plead you to not make conclusion's about my post so early.
