    New to ubuntu and now certain web pages won't load.

    So i just installed Ubuntu and a game my roommates plays straight off the internet will no longer load. With my lack of experience, I can't seem to figure out why not. It won't display an error, it just stops loading halfway through and the screen turns black. It loads other pages from the same website but simply stops when it comes to the log in for the game. The website is empire.goodgamestudios.com.

    When i access the browser console during the error it states this about the current page and i don't understand what it means, "--
    [21:52:03.756] Use of getPreventDefault() is deprecated. Use defaultPrevented instead. @ http://empire.goodgamestudios.com/"

    If anyone can explain this to me or tell me what to adjust in order to get this website to load my roommate would greatly appreciate it and I would like to learn what the problem is for informational purposes.

    Thanks everyone in advance,

    I can get to the site, but I don't have a login. It appears to use flash, and loads for me in Chromium and Firefox.

    Have you installed flash? Do a search in the Ubuntu Software Center, it will show up as "Adobe Flash plugin".
    Alternatively you could type this in the terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
    Then try again. You'll need to restart the browser after installation.
