    Yahoo Text Twist doesn't work in Firefox

    I absolutely cannot figure out how to make the game Text Twist on yahoo games, work in my browser. I have installed JDK, Flash, Shockwave, all to no avail. It simply won't work, and I get a message that Firefox is missing a plugin, but when I click on "find plugin", firefox just searches indefinitely and never finds anything. Thanks for any help!

    I've no idea what this game is or how it works, but there are sites that are Internet Explorer-specific and won't run on any other browser, because it depends on MS IE-specific code. Is this game one of those?

    Okay, I don't know what I did. But I thought I had tried this already, but I removed and reinstalled the Open JDK environment, and then removed and reinstalled the icedtea plugin, and now text twist works on the shockwave website, but not the yahoo games website. Go figure, thanks for the help!
