My on-line games won't play

When I go to play games I can login and pick the game and it loads but the game does not start. I've rebooted and tried again and still they won't play. The games I play on facebook messenger play fine it's just other game sites that I have the problem. My adobe flash player is up to date. This all started right after firefox updated.

Thank you

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

How to disable Hardware Acceleration {web link}


Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Tracking Protection feature. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature: Tracking Protection {web link}

When trying to play the games in safe mode they didn't do anything once logged in

Did you check the Tracking Protection part on the bottom?

I've tried everything I can think of. I can play the games on other browsers with no problem. Below is one of the games I can't play.

Thanks
