Note from Alan on December 24, 2010 @ 6:17 PM: The bug in the new "Bricks, Nails, and Boards" group in the FarmVille Toolbar Preferences that was causing Snag Bars to snag everything has been fixed. It will take a few hours for the fix to propogate out to everyone. If you don't want to wait, please go to http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/toolbar/reload. Once the page says "Toolbar Reloaded," your Snag Bar should be fixed. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi guys, I understand a lot of you (everyone) are having problems with unchecked items being snagged.  Admin has been made aware of the problem with the preferences page no longer restricting what you choose to snag.  This problem will be found and fixed!

As our forums are over run with the same problem, I've created this thread for feedback and a place to funnel complaints related to this problem.  So as to better manage duplicate posts and keep the forums usable for those looking for game tips and information.

Bear with us, it will be fixed. 

*[Edit]*

  Try the following before the next time you start your snagbar:

  1. Stop your snagbar and click the drop down menu beside the Red and White "G" to the far left of the snag bar.
  2. in the drop down, select "Clear Search History"
  3. Next, reopen the drop down menu and select "Layout Manager"
  4. On the bottom left hand corner you will see an option to "Restore default",  click this option.


Now, check your preferences and restart the snagbar.  See if this resolves your problem.

Thanks to everyone @ GU for fixing this...and a special thanx to our fellow GU member for finding out what the issue was. The tool bar is back to normal.

Thank you, finally fixed!

Hey all,

Ben Sisko, one of our fellow GU! members, appears to have discovered what is wrong with the Snag Bar. While paying attention to what the Snag Bar was doing as well as what he was trying, he discovered that the bug appears to be in the new "Bricks, Nails, and Boards" category in the toolbar preferences. I have tested his conclusions and concur. While we wait for the Snag Bar programmers to look at the new group to determine what is wrong, please go into the Miscellaneous category in the FarmVille Toolbar Prefrences and uncheck the "Bricks, Nails, and Boards" category.

Thanks for the Reload tip Alan. I just tried that. I hope it works.

I too have tried the "new fix", still snagging everything.

Picture?type=square

Hey there guys,

I have tried the "fix" as per above suggestion (24 Dec 2010), alas it does not work. Tried it several times just to make sure but am getting the same result..... snagging everything. Am sure that you are already looking into this, so thanks in advance. Please can you let us know when the problem is resolved?

Picture?type=square

I did this and it's STILL snagging everything. This didn't help at all, and I don't seem to be the only one having the issue. Looks like you guys will have to find another way to fix this.

Picture?type=square

Not to sound crabby but your post has it backwards....there's only a few items it isn't snagging. I am serious I did the fix and it it is still snagging ALL ponies, All wandering animals, all mystery seedlings, all eggs all bouquets and all Bushels...I'm sorry what really is there left that it isn't snagging? Hahaha Ho Ho Ho Happy Holidays! Peace out!

That Reply from Tony is on 10/10/10 I am hoping they are aware of it now 12/24/10 because I tried the quick fix and it is still snagging everything in plain sight...Those seedlings and water cans KNOCK our gifts out...ridiculous! Meanwhile I am going to use a more reliable snagger for chrome where I can manage what I take in. Thanks anyhow!

I un-installed and re-installed the snagbar, then I did what was suggested above by Tony. It is still snagging EVERYTHING! Started last night.

Mine started snagging everything it can lat night. I tried all of the steps stated above, but it is still snagging everything. Should I reinstall the snag bar?

I'm sure this is a repeat question but you said they were working on the problem yet I've seen no answer that helps. Most of the forums on the topic appear to be ignored.

I can open the FarmVille Toolbar Preferences window but cannot get anything but the Eggs to drop down and let me choose what to snag. I can uncheck whole sections but not the miscellaneous area that has most of the items that I do not want. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have gone to FB application section and uninstalled Gamers Unite! and then restarted the snag, allowing access that way. None has made a difference. I am using the Firefox 3.16.12 and the latest Adobe and Java programs. Interestingly, I tried to install in on IE and it works fine there but I hate IE and want it to work on Firefox. I don't think that I have any pop-up blocker active but am not totally sure where to find out on Firefox.

Sure wish the bar worked on Chrome but then it hasn't been loading my farm very well lately...

i am still having trouble getting past permission,i have went in and made sure nothing was blocked and am seeing friends post.it worked fine yesterday morning but when we switched user(3of us share snag bar) i had the trouble when i tried to snag again.other 2 have no problem.yes i followed advise for editing at bottom of new feed it is blank.

Picture?type=square

Picture?type=square

hey im on a dif computer n it wont even dnld for me.something in fb keeps stopping it..what to do?

Picture?type=square

I would like to thank you for all your patience and suggestions in sorting out the snag bar issues when it wouldnt snag anything at all from farmville. Did follow your instructions and notified facebook powers that be, and it is now sorted. The solution came about after sorting the cause which was an update? creating a change to my news feed. Frontierville and many other applications I use commonly were all hidden from the news feed. On your news feed page scroll to the very bottom and click edit options. If frontierville or farmville are in the list remove them as they are hidden from your news feed and the snag bar application. again, Thank you very much for all suggestions.

You created this post on 10/10/10; as of today there is still no fix. Do you know or have any idea when this will be resolved. I have pretty much stopped using the snag bar altogether due to this problem. In addition, I am unable to snag for Frontierville. I am by no means a computer programmer but it would appear to me that it is not rocket science either. There should be some way to stop it from snagging everything in sight....

I am having problems with my 1 click gifts .. one day it works, the next day it doesn't .. anyone know what's up with that?

Picture?type=square

I can uncheck the gifts..but still get them collected.. my gift box was full of everything I've had unchecked for months. also now..since farmville or facebook changed the gift acceptance page..my accept all/ignore all button doesn't work. Will not accept anything.
