Hi JLO900.

 

Glad to know that you posted on Windows 8 community.

 

Could you please answer the following questions so that we can help you in a better way.

 

1. Are you able to play other online games?

2. What is the error message you are getting when you try to play facebook games?

3. Which internet explorer are you using for playing facebook games?

 

There are two types of Internet explorers in Windows 8.One is the modern ui version and the other is the desktop version. In modern ui version you cannot play face book games but in desktop version you can play facebook games.

 

Here are few methods which you can try to resolve the issue.

 

Method1.Run internet explorer in compatibility mode.

 

When you open internet explorer there is a small icon next to address bar please click there and it will run the internet explorer in compatibility mode.

 

Please follow the link also

Hi, thank you for your time to help me to resolve this matter.  I haven't tried playing any other online games apart from the ones on Facebook.  I am not getting any error message they just wont load up they get so far and stop. I am using the internet explorer on the desktop.  I have tried the compatibility thing and it hasn't worked.  Do you think it might have any thing to do with Norton anti virus? It is a brand new pc so is it possible it wil need resetting?

Kind regards

What games are you trying to play on Facebook? I don't have any issues playing games on my Facebook.

 

If you think its Norton you can temporarily uninstall it and then try playing.

Use the uninstaller tool below if you are wanting to try that route.

I worked for days on this problem & I think I am closer to the answer.  Every time I would try to play a facebook game it would tell me I needed to install Adobe Flash 10 (which is not even the latest version of Adobe Flash) which I would do only to have the same message pop up again.  After much reading I have come to the conclusion that since IE10 has Adobe flash built into it any external download of Adobe flash just doesn't work.  Now whether the problem lies in IE10 or Facebook games not recognizing the flash player built into IE10, I don't know.

I have worked around the problem by using Firefox when dealing with Facebook.  Just make sure you enable the Flash plug in from Firefox addons.

I am having almost the same problem.  I have windows 8.  I've been playing facebook games until last night (July 11).  All of a sudden when I click on the games my Internet Explorer 10 just jumps and jumps like crazy.  No error messages nothing.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled.  I've reset, cleaned the cache, you name it.  No luck.   No one can seem to help.  Any suggestions?  I'm very frustrated.

I'm having the same problem. I can play the games on my desk top using windows 7 but not on my laptop using windows 8. I could when I first got my laptop but now I can't. It's doing the same thing that your saying it does for you. Very frustrating.

I have since upgraded to 8.1.  It has IE 11.  I was having worse problems.  Couldn't upload photos to facebook only but 1 at a time.  Drove me nuts.  Now all of a sudden it's working perfectly.  So there must have been an update.  Thank God!    I do recommend the 8.1 though.  It's better and it's free upgrade.  Good luck!

Exactly!!! It seems to have worked fine until the "big" update a month or so ago for me! There has to be something Microsoft can do! I'd "blame" the game developers except the games DO work with ANY browser on my desktop with Windows 7!
