I don't know if this question is appropriate for this forum, but here's taking a chance, and I hope you can help.
A Flash game I play at discovery.com worked fine about a year ago. I stopped playing it for several months, and then went back to it.
When I went back to it it didn't play fully any more. It gets to a certain level, then hangs at the same spot every time (some screens download but not enough components to play the game).
I clear my cache every day, so it's not that. I've updated Firefox (twice since the problem started), so it's not that. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the Flash player - same problem happens. I've tried disabling my add ons - no change. I've tried two other browsers, and the game either stops at the same point, or earlier. I've tried allowing the relevant cookies; doesn't seem to make a difference.
I've tried messing with Adobe's Flash Global Settings, trying them in different configurations (allowing everything, allowing nothing, and every switch in between); no help.
I fiddle with my security settings sometimes and wonder if I changed some default setting that is blocking something, or some automated security upgrade in the later browser(s) is doing something.
I don't seem to have any other Flash problems on my computer (videos play fine); the "test" at Adobe.com works. I have the latest version.
I'm no technie so if you have an idea, thanks for your input.
Once you're there, the site will check if all your plugins have the latest versions.
If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.
To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.
