Why can't I play games at

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

I'm not advertising gamehouse, I'm trying to convince my wife that FF is beter than IE. If she can't play her games, she simply won't bother with FF.
I've installed the java, flash, and shockwave plug ins, but no luck. Try this link and then click start game in the free column. It works fine for us in AOL and in IE. So far that's the only problem I'm having with FF. Please don't hesitate to respond to this post like I'm in pre-K because I admit to being computer illiterate.

It is working fine for me.

Type "about:plugins" (without the quotes) into the address bar on top. This should display a list of active plugins. Make sure you have those installed.

It looks like it is a java game, so make sure that tools > options > web features > enable java is checked, and that you installed java from sun --

If all of this looks right, try restarting your computer before you try again. Then, let us know how it goes.

WFM.....W2Ksp4 Fx 1.0.....Check your java plugins: open a blank Firefox window and type about:plugins in the address (URL) bar and hit Enter.

It seems to work fine for me in Firefox, are you sure that you have enabled Java? And if it is, are you sure it's the latest version? (
To check if it's enabled, go to Tools -> Options... -> Web Features -> [¯] Enable Java
Be sure to check the box.

Firefox 1.0, latest Java, slightly-outdated Flash version, Windows XP.

Thanks for the replies. Iwent to and downloaded that now I have a java icon in my tray?!?! I did about plugins and all the java beans and java applets are all enabled. I did tools options and java is checked and enabled, although I didn't touch the advanced tab. Still no luck with the game:(. Any other suggestions?

I was just thinking, could it have something to do with adblock?

Why dont you disable adblock and find out, go to Tools->Extensions->Adblock->Right click and select disable

YES!!! Adblock was the problem! I just turned it off on that game site and everything works fine. Thank you to everyone who replied. This seems to be one of the most helpful forums I've ever been to! Now feel free to let this topic scroll off into the sunset. *tumbleweed blows by*

That error indicates a problem on the server end of the process. That is, with It's something they will probably fix as soon as they can.

Please note, though, that you have posted to a thread that's been dead for more than 7 years.

Locking this due to the age of the original posts.
