So - more info!

The game only freezes if you are running multiple tabs of the game.

Tonight, I played on w1 only and it didn't freeze at all.

If you are playing on multiple servers, whether you sign in with all of them on one URL and use the carousel to open the servers or the direct link to the server you are playing on, then it will freeze.

It would be great if Playa could fix the memory drain on the HTML5 version so it could at least be used. Again, I understand the HTML5 is beta, but it's been beta for over a year and nothing on it has changed that I can see. The memory drain is completely unacceptable.

It seems anyone using Windows 10 is not having the problem, but anyone using anything before that is running into the freezing problem.

No, I'm not using steam and I'm not downloading another format to play the game.

This is ridiculous. I had to stop using FireFox before because the game won't run on it properly (and still doesn't after all this time, as I tried to use it again since this issue popped up, and all that did was make molasses in winter going uphill look fast) - HTML5 doesn't work, and now my Chrome/Flash is freezing every 15 minutes.

I will not add STEAM to the pile of changes I have had to make to continue playing the game.

We have people who STILL can't use their mobile devices because some setting somewhere changed, and that was swept under the rug.

As an aside, Bobo just told me that Chrome DOES freeze on Windows 10 when multiple tabs are opened.

I use Firefox and Flash content crashes every day. Just started S&F, only 1 tab open, tab frozen. Refeshing the tab fixes the problem and I won't get additional freezing the whole day.

It might be a faulty Flash update...but I will ask the devs if the latest S&F update causes freezing.

Just got the reply. There indeed was a Flash update for Chrome and Firefox that causes this annoying freezing. The game code is not the reason.

Due to the latest Flash update for Chrome and Firefox the game freezes a lot. This is not our fault but a Flash problem. We have to wait for a fix. The temporary solution is to refresh the game or better: click the minimize/maximize button to unfreeze it again.

I have been using Firefox since forever and never had any issues.
Only from (i guess) a couple of months the game does seem to load a bit slower and if you click anything within 2 seconds after starting it's gonna disconnect.

Yeah, sometimes flash just shuts down, but that has been flash thing for years.
