Same here. Use firefox so apparantly it's not browser related. And it started when winter wonderland was released

    Same here. I use Chrome and bought the WW last week and it was working until this morning. I can post using farmville.com but not through Facebook. Yes, I cleared cache and it didn't help.

    Same here. I use FF and every time the 'extra/white' sharing box pops up the screen stays grey and have to reload. It has been doing so since WW opened up yesterday.

    I am having the same issue. I'm playing Farmville through Facebook and am using Internet Explorer 9. The issue started when I opened up the Winter Wonderland.

    Same here! But only when I play through Facebook, farmville.com works fine. Try it! But of course Zynga should fix this

    Me too just since WW but same on all farms. TEMPORARY WORKAROUND=click on "free gifts" tab then skip, will work without having to reload, tedious but better. . . :D

    Same here and also with several of my neighbors, however my husband is NOT having the problem on his computer and we both use the same programs. I use Foxfire and I too have twice taken the normal corrective measures of clearing cache and restarting my computer. Mine also started after Winter Wonderland began - it will send my "shares" but freezes in that limbo slightly grayed screen and I have to reload the game. Someone want to get us out of sharing limbo????

    For me, everything worked fine until this morning. I started WW yesterday, and didn't have any problems with that or other farms.

    Same here, started yesterday. Another farm on same computer is fine, so I know it's not the computer.
    I sent an email in, but haven't heard anything back yet.


    Adding: went to farmville. com, and that is working. thanks for the tip!

    Same problem here and it started yesterday with the arrival of WW! I am using Chrome with Windows 7, have cleared cache and gone to farmville.com and the problem still persists. I certainly hope they fix this soon as it really is a pain! :(

    I am having the same problems and the small area goes grey. The 'free gifts' is also greyed. The only thing not greyed is the PLAY. BUT, then it has to reload. I have NOT downloaded winter wonderland farm... I also use a choice of three browsers: IE, FF, Chrome. I also go in through either FB or farmville.com and it is doing it on all three. I am ignoring most of the quests right now, too.

    Also dealing with this.

    * Cleared Browser Cache (Yes or No):
    Yes
    * State exactly what error message are you seeing:
    No window opens for me to post to my wall. Get them all the time if I want to share from my harvests, but no window or message for quest requests. No post appears on my wall for friends to reply to. But I can't try requesting again until the time is up. *Have not experienced freezing or grey.*
    * What browser and version you are currently using when getting the error:
    Firefox, Chrome, and Explorer same results
    * Are you playing FarmVille on FarmVille.com or Facebook when getting the error:
    Both
    * Does it happen all the time:
    Yes
    * Is it quest related? If yes, which Quest Line?:
    All current (penguin, winter wonderland, discover) Had this problem with penguin last week, but did not report.
    * Please explain what actions you took prior to getting the error:
    Answer game requests.
    My first action when opening game, click on quest, click on request.

    Cleared Browser Cache (Yes or No):
    Tried both yes and no.

    State exactly what error message are you seeing:
    No message appears.

    What browser and version you are currently using when getting the error:
    The latest Internet Explorer.

    Are you playing FarmVille on FarmVille.com or Facebook when getting the error:
    Problem happens while playing on both sites--Facebook and Farmville.com.

    Does it happen all the time:
    Only 25% of my shares make it to my wall. The important ones, such as quest item shares and requests never appear.

    Is it quest related? If yes, which Quest Line?:
    I've been experiencing this problem since the Autumn quests. Makes it very difficult to ask for items needed to be collected.. At the same time, difficult to collect items from Farmville neighbors because they too do not have that item posted on their walls.

    Please explain what actions you took prior to getting the error:
    Never did anything different to get this persistent issue. I've tried avoiding it by posting extra item shares [for example: sharing bushels] and checking to see if they made it to my wall. It's usually a 50/50 chance.

    I use Firefox 3.6.24 and play through facebook with an Windows 7 OS. This had been happening before Winter Wonderland with the penguin challenge and the other "fall" challenges. For each of the challenges I could click but nothing happened. I wound up moving up by mooching off the newsfeed. Once Wonderland started, I can no longer post trees other stuff that I want to share. I notice that I can still share eggs from my coop and anything from the horse stable. I am not sure about the other buildings.

    While waiting for the share message. I see the browser displaying either of these messages in the bottom toolbar...

    "Transfering data from fb-tc-3.farmville.com" or
    "Read static-3.farmville.zgncdn.com"

    I hope this helps.
