Don't know why but when I......
by tobeach / April 6, 2005 3:14 PM PDT

go to site and use "how do I access settings panel" and get to the page with links, each link just brings the text information about that type of panel. Does NOT bring up interactive panel.
Is this 'cause I'm visiting the site using Mozilla?
( Note: I use Mozilla to play PopCap games on line which uses Flash Player into browser with no problems.)
How do I access these settings locally, not on net?
I'm using Suns Java V. 142_07 (latest).
Any ideas?? Thanks in Advance! Happy

tobeach, do you have Flash Player installed?
by Donna Buenaventura / April 6, 2005 6:00 PM PDT

I have Macromedia Shockwave Player
If you do not have you can download manually from http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
Try to verify your Mozilla plug-ins for Flash Player too.

Screenshot using Mozilla Suite : http://img233.exs.cx/img233/6867/moz9vc.jpg

I visited the links using IE, Firefox, Mozilla & Opera and all can be viewed and configured.

BTW, the lastest version of Sun Java RunTime Environment is now 1.4.2_08-b03
You can download it manually from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

Note: Do not run the Java Plug-in updater to update your Sun Java because it will download/install v1.5 (AKA v5) instead of the latest 1.4.2_08. Even if you want to upgrade to v1.5 (AKA v5) of Sun Java JRE, UNINSTALL first the old version then download the lastest version.

1.4.2_08 and v1.5 - Would you recommend I uninstall one or both (and start again) - with 1.4.2x ...

Uninstall one of them Jake but verify first.
by Donna Buenaventura / April 7, 2005 12:44 AM PDT

First, verify which version of Java is in use by your browser. If you do not have problem with the detected version of Java, you can proceed in removing the other version. Close any open windows/browser before removal of the other Java.

Donna - How do you determine which version is in use:
by Jake Barnes / April 7, 2005 6:03 AM PDT

I'm using FireFox 1.0.2, Mozilla 1.7.6 and IE 6.0 - it seems that "some of each" java version is in use ... is it advisable to uninstall both versions and reinstall just one ... if so, which one?

Seeing the same thing Tobeach is seeing.

Ie6 sp1
Flash player 7.0.19

I can go to the site and bring up the screens to make adjustments,,,but

Are these adjustments being made to my local settings? (if there is such a thing)
Are these adjustments being made to a fresh install of flash player?

Shockwave Flash Player v.7.0,19,0 direct from Macromedia showing in IE BUT you're right when I check Mozillas "About plug-ins" I don't see Flash, only PopCap loader and half a dozen assorted Java plug-ins for Mozilla. How can I get Moz. to recognise existing Flash or will I require another install making 2 in total?
Suprising since popcap uses flash to play in browser and says you need such to play and I do so via Mozilla. They note flash compatable wiith Mozilla, Opera etc. I'm just very suspicious of a 3rd party supplied Active-X.

Thanks for the tip on Java update to -08-b03. I currently have J2RESE 142_07-b05. Should I uninst & inst new _08 or just overlay the instal of new? Usually I've un-installed first. Thanks for you time! Happy

It is using Java plug-in
by Donna Buenaventura / April 8, 2005 1:11 AM PDT


The game you mentioned is not using Flash Player but a Java plug-in. You have Sun Java and enabled that is why you can play.
See - http://www.popcap.com/help.php?cat=web

If you do not see Flash in Moz's About>Plug-in then you need to download from http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
That installer of Flash is for Mozilla, Netscape, Opera and Compuserve browsers. You can also get it from http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/windows.html#Flash

I suggest that you uninstalled the current Java before installing the latest v1.4.2_08. At least you are sure that the old version is gone.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
