This just makes me hate battlelog even more. They should have just made it all in game

Possible fix: (May not work for all, works for me)

Fresh boot.
Launch BF3 and battlelog.
Exit origin, keeping browser window open with battlelog.
Navigate to your install folder and launch BF3.exe.
When battlelog opens (new tab/window) close the previous tab/window and try to join a game.

Good luck.

This is insane I have 5 hours logged on a phone call with the "experts" and another 2 hours logged with the live chat "experts". Wudi, what happened this time I was playing this morning and now Origin will not even start up. I can not beleive how poorly this is run.

I've had this problem since the last game patch was released, as have many other players.

I've tried alot of things in the hope it will fix it, including a full reinstall, and so far nothing has worked. The livechat people can't seem to fix it (I've spoke to many of them).

Considering it was the patch, for me, that caused this issue I feel the only solution will be another game-patch.

It's been 4 or so weeks since i've been able to play (other than once right after a livechat person 'changed my account' or something).. it worked for one game, now it wont work again. whatever they changed fixed it, as soon as i left the server whatever was changed seem to reset leaving me unable to play again.

Goodluck solving your issue, it's been weeks for me and so far noone has been able to offer any useful help.

This was not an issue pre-patch and the only thing to change on my computer since this problem arose was the patch, go figure!

I changed browsers, Firefox originally didn't work for me, but chrome did, so I swapped to chrome. It worked :) Now I'm back to firefox and it works

If you have already played the game and after a update it wont run, 1st thing to do is go to MY DOCUMENTS or DOCUMENTS.

then copy and paste your BF3 Folder somewhere.

Delete original folder and then run game,

99% fix.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Al others , run bf3 from origin, see if its opening a new webbrowser page, if not..run Origin as Admin.. not meaning( i am logged in as admin)

Go to origin folder, right click origin.exe /properties/compatibility/ then tick the box Run this program as administrator!\

If still no fix, Contact the BCS ! we will help you running within 5 min!

Firefox used to work well for me. I start having the "Joining Server...." stuck problem today right after the patch.
The procedure above works for me when I change to either Chrome, or IE9. However, changing back to Firefox and mine still stuck.
Will have to stick with IE

Just go to My Documents and delete the Battlefield folder. I then went back into Origin and checked for updates and signed back into multiplayer. Works fine now.

The delete battlefield tip does not work. What does work is uninstalling then reinstalling origin. This is a gargantuan pain in the ass. Ea sort it out for gawds sake....plus deleting that folder resets your settings in game. Thanks for nothing whoever posted that idiotic message.
Trying to keep it funny....

I've got this problem. This sorted out by:

1. Disabling using of compability mode on bf3.exe.
2. Disable run as administrator box on bf3.exe.

Hope then works!

Disabling "UPnP" in your Router/Modem (from webbrowser) worked for me.
