I don't know why, but it seems that i can only view BC in the lo-fi version.

Even if i scroll all the way down to the page, and click the here link to view the full content(which i got from previous threads), it still displays BC in the lo-fi version. The home page displays perfectly though.

I also can not play the game Adventure Quest. I can on IE though. The status bar shows that it is waiting, connecting, transferring and all of a sudden its done even though nothing has loaded except for the options at the bottom. When i right click in the window, it says that the movie is not loaded.

Strangely enough, i can play other game requiring Flash like DragonFable which is from the makers of Adventure Quest....

I tried hitting the reload the page a million times for both problems but nothing ever changes. I even tried unistalling and then re-installing Flash player to solve the Adventure quest problem but to no avail.

I am using Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.5 to browse. Can anyone help me?

Also, does anyone know what the errors displayed in the error console(Firefox) mean and/or how to fix the errors?

Thanks in advance for any help! :thumbsup:

Check to see that you have the latest JavaRuntimeEnvironment installed, Annabackwards, and that Javascript is enabled (Tool/Options/Content).
Cheers,

Thanks for replying jgweed.

I installed Java runtime (5) and that fixed the Adventure Quest problem.

Bu when i try to update it, it says there is a fatal error. It says that i this file was not accessible or something: http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.5.0/spo...0_11/sp1033.MST

I tried updating it again but the same thing happens. BC is still looking funny.

Do you know how to fix this problem?

You should uninstall all versions on your machine and install the latest. http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

The latest JRE is Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 2. You can download it from this page:

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

Be sure un-install any other (prior) versions.

Let us know if the newer version does not fix the problem. Also, check Ff to see if the cache is cleaned out:Tools/options/Advanced/Cache, "clear now."

Regards,
John

Well, clearing the cache fixed my BC prob, thanks!

Didn't know which one to download, so i am getting it off softpedia.com

Will tell you guys what happens.

I tried to install Nero Premium 7, but it says that it can't because i don't have access to my temp folder

Any ideas?

Both links point to the latest version.

On the temp folder, make sure that the {make folder private} is not checked.

r click, properties, sharing tab, uncheck

I'm not sure how to get to the temp folder.

Here is what the exact error message says: "Installation can not create necessary temporary internet files folder on 'C:\DOCUME~1\ANN\LOCALS~1\Temp\Nero7.tmp\CAB\Tmp' Please check you have write permission for this folder"

I found the cache folder for firefox at C:\Documents and Settings\annA.ANNA-1PQCY3C8D7\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\7xh8p12y.default (is this right?) and both are unchecked.


Is this what you mean? Thanks for helping

I was watching the installation process, and i think it is referring to the temporary directory Nero is trying to extract the files needed for the installation to.

I checked all of the temp directories on my computer and they are all unchecked.

Any ideas?
