FrontierVille tries to solve the case of the disappearing bonus items
One of my biggest beefs with FrontierVille (aside from it sucking away any semblance of a social life these past few days/weeks) is that when your virtual pioneer performs any task, bonuses will appear and must be clicked before they disappear. Once they're gone, they're gone forever. However, you may have noticed that -- while frantically clicking and trying to collect all of the bonuses -- a pop-up window will sometimes appear, which impedes the whole bonus collection process.
Apparently, the people behind the scenes are working on fixing that problem, says FrontierVille moderator Sugar Monkey:
I thought I noticed that it was easier to snag all of my bonuses today, but I'd rather just skip the whole pop-up thing altogether. Maybe there's another way to send friends all of those extra tools. Don't mess with mama's bonuses, you wouldn't like to see mama angry.The developers have put in place a pause on the bonus timer when a pop up is active. However, they are aware of the disappearing bonuses as soon as the pop up is closed.
So, we have a timer, but the devs are still working on making sure the bonus items do not disappear as fast when sharing/closing the pop-up.

Have you been having an easier time collection all of your bonuses?
