Hi dennisattanasio-

I would try clearing the cache and remove the cookies on the yahoofree games website:

Clear the Cache:

  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

Remove Cookies from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

If that doesn't work, I would suggest you read this article on troubleshooting video issues:

Fix common audio and video issues

Hope that helps.

In addition to the suggestions in Fix common audio and video issues:

It may also help if you told us exactly what Yahoo game are you trying to play. Your "more system details" says http://www.yahoo.free games but that's not a valid URL. I checked out http://games.yahoo.com but there are too many game links there to try them all.

Post a link to the Yahoo game page that doesn't work so that someone can check it to see what might be the problem.
