Glowbe won't load!

There are a number of things you can attempt if the flash part of Glowbe does not load, such as:

  • Doing a hard refresh or clearing your cache. this is the first thing you should attempt to do if Glowbe will not load.
  • Turning on Javascript. Javascript must be enabled in order for Glowbe to work correctly.
  • Set script blockers to allow Glowbe. Some script blockers may block Glowbe and cause it not to load.
  • Check your firewall. If your firewall does not allow Glowbe, it may cause an error message to appear.
  • Update your flash. Glowbe requires at least Flash 9 to function, but it is best to be up to date with the latest version.
  • Disable your AdBlocker. We don't run ads on Glowbe, but some AdBlockers may block the Flash portion of Glowbe.

I tried these and Glowbe still won't load!

If you're absolutely sure you tried all of the above and have double-checked that your firewall is not blocking Glowbe you can post to Bug Hunters so that people may help you. Please include:

  • Your operating system and version.
  • The name and version of your web browser.
  • Your flash version number.
  • A screenshot or detailed explanation of the situation and any error messages. It is not possible to help you if you simply post something such as "it's not working!".

Supported browsers?

Firefox is recommended as all other browsers have slight issues running Glowbe, but it is still possible to use them.

How do I become friendly?

If the friendly person checkbox does not show up when you edit your profile you either:

  • Are not at least level ten with twenty friends.
  • Have lost the privilege due to bad behaviour.

Something is wrong with my music or I can't visit a room?

If the room has issues because of music you may choose to mute the volume on the Glowbe browser so the music will not load. You can then go in and remove the music. You may also copy the URL to send along with a description of the issue to staff via help's contact us option.
