Hey guys. Interesting problem here. I've been able to play Yahoo Games before (like pool) but now a days i can't. I sometimes just get kicked off the browser, but i've also gotten a message saying:


This game cannot be played using your current settings. Please, try the following:

* Check to make sure that java is enabled in your browser.
* If you do not have java installed you may download it here.
* To learn more about java support for browsers, visit our help pages.

I've tried all of that and nothing works.

I dunno whats going on here. Even IE wont play anything on Yahoo Games. it's really odd.

firefox 3.0

  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "Multi-language".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
