I play Angry Birds Friends on facebook regularly.  All of a sudden flash player is blocked when I try to log in.  I uninstalled and re installed Adobe flash, I have tried every browser, cleared my cache, changed the flash settings from allow, to always ask, then back again.  I have even tried a system restore.  Its been about 4 days now.  I understand many others (not all) are having this issue.  I can play the game on my phone or tablet but not the laptop.  Any suggestions?

Have you tried adding http://* and https://* to the list of exceptions in the brwoser's Flash Player settings? If not, please try this.

 https://* comes back as invalid and won't add.  I tried the first one.  It did not help.

for me it looks like a bug in the game itself that prevent Flash to be blocked to avoid a crash.

did you send your issue to the game developers?

The game is working for me.  I think the error you're seeing is related to some internal game state, not with Flash Player itself.

You can check that by accessing the game in an Incognito window.  If it works, then clearing your browser's cache and cookies should fix whatever's going on.

Also, here's Google's guidance on enabling Flash Player in Chrome:

Cool, so it doesn't have anything to do with your facebook or game state.

Does other stuff work, like:

http://homestarrunner.com/main1.html

If so, then Flash Player is working.  I don't really know anything about how Facebook or the Angry Pigs back-end works, but my guess is that you're hitting a different node on the network than I am, and it's having a problem.  If you have access to VPN, you could change geographic areas and see if that helps.

Also, what about plug-ins? Do you have any anti-tracking/ad-blocking plugins running?  I'm thinking no, but I figured I'd ask.
