Farmville Duck Screen WORKING TEMPORARY FIX





Is getting stuck on the duck screen in Farmville driving you to a quack up? Unable to load your farm for days? Thanks to Farmer Peter and other members of our ASK the Dirt Farmer group, your Dirt Farmer team has learned of a simple workaround that will allow you to load your farm. 

Be aware that the SIDE EFFECT of this workaround is that it will also BLOCK THE GIFT ENVELOPE so you cannot receive/return gifts in that manner until you reverse the workaround. Thus it is necessary to CAREFULLY READ THE FULL POST so that you will know how to REVERSE the workaround when this round of the duck issue ends and RESTORE your gift envelope.


Why The Stuck Duck Screen Happens


The duck gets stuck because of what is called a document domain error. The game requests information from it’s server using one url and responds with a different one. Since Java is required for the game to run and different urls in Java environment are a common malware tactic, despite the fact that both of the game’s urls are safe, every browser will block further action as a precaution. By blocking the cookie from one of the urls, this work around compels the game to respond with the correct one.

How To Get The Duck Unstuck in Chrome


Note this work around is for CHROME based browsers (Chrome, Chrome Canary, Comodo Dragon etc.)  For Mozilla based Browsers scroll to bottom

Click to load your farm, then click beside the http or https in your browser’s address bar.




This will bring a drop down box showing allowed and blocked cookies. Within it click on “Show Cookies and site data”






Then click on  fv-zprod.farmville.com and click “block” and then do the same for fv-zprod-tc0.farmville.com.






When “cookies from” both urls show blocked at the bottom of the pop up box, click close





You will then be prompted to reload your farm for cookie settings to take effect. You should then get your farm and not the duck.
Remember this will allow you to load your farm but will also BLOCK your GIFT ENVELOPE so you will have no way to accept/return gifts other than the app center on Facebook. It is wise to check often as to whether the problem has been resolved, by unblocking the cookie so you can have the envelope back. 





How to Unblock the Cookie & Get Your Envelope Back When Duck Issue is Over


Click to load your farm, then click beside the http or https in your browser’s address bar.





This will bring a drop down box showing allowed and blocked cookies. Within it click on “Show Cookies and site data”





Click on the “blocked” tab






Click on each of the blocked url’s individually, click allow, then after doing both click “close”






You will then get the  “reload to save cookie settings” screen. Do so and see if the duck is history yet.








How To Get The Duck Unstuck in Firefox


Note this work around is for Mozilla Firefox based browsers (Firefox, Pale Moon, Nightly, Comodo Ice Dragon etc.)  For Mozilla based Browsers scroll to bottom

Click  on the 3 lines at upper right of browser and click on options






Then click on “privacy” then the down arrow next to “history” and “use custom settings for history” then click “ok”






Then click on “exceptions” 





Type fv-zprod.farmville.com and click “block” and then do the same for fv-zprod-tc0.farmville.com. Then click “close”




Remember this will allow you to load your farm upon refresh, but will also BLOCK your GIFT ENVELOPE so you will have no way to accept/return gifts other than the app center on Facebook. It is wise to check often as to whether the problem has been resolved, by unblocking the cookie so you can have the envelope back.
