For example if you go to www.pogo.com, and click on the "First Class Solitaire"
link, if you then choose a room to play in, the advertising page will show, an
applet will load, but then a page will load that says "Browser Warning
This game does not support the web browser that you're using."

Some games on the pogo.com site will load, such as Chess. We should contact them
and let them know that we are developing a Java plugin that should work with all
of the games on their site.
isn't this TE ?
my english is bad and i should no contact this page :-)

Has anything been done about this?  I installed the Java plug-in and I sit idle
at the advertisement screen when trying to play spades.

Evang bug triage - no activity on this since April of 04. Can someone with an
account test the latest version of Firefox to see if this is still an issue?
