As far as I can tell Mindspark has nothing to do with Mahjong, it is either an on-line Maths tutor (legit) or a name given to a range of malwares and PUPs !


I think your problem is much more likely to do with the fact that at least some of these games require Flash to run on-line, and Flash has been virtually banned by Chrome and Firefox. If the version you have requires Flash then your simplest approach is to look around for a version that uses HTML5. Simply put, if the instructions for an on-line game say 'Requires Flash' move on to a different version until you find one that works.

I play crossword puzzles at a few sites. My Firefox blocks Adobe Flash and asks if I want to enable if one of the

crossword puzzles requires flash.


There is a Mahjong puzzle and many other puzzles available in the site below. What happens when you

click on the link I provided? Play Mahjongg Solitaire | USA Today


If you use a script blocker it may block scripts the websites require before playing a game. If you use an ad blocker

the sites may ask you to disable it before playing games.


I just checked to see what your local time is. You may not be able to access the site in the link I provided above

if the local time given is correct. Where are you geographically?
