User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1
Build Identifier: Firefox browser 2.0.0.1

This has happened several times. I open Yahoo Games, click dominoes, and the dominoes section opens up, but improperly, and the browser freezes. Thereafter, I can't open the browser without it trying to open up Yahoo Games again and freezing.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to yahoo.games
2. Click on dominoes
3.
Actual Results:  
Won't open properly; freezes.


This may be a yahoo problem, but the games/dominoes section properly opens using Microsoft Explorer browser.

I did a little testing of this on the trunk, and I found I had to install the JRE (http://java.com/en/download/windows_manual2.jsp) in order to be able to play this game (Note I am running on Win Vista, not Win XP and I did get a notification that this plugin was needed to play). I also found once I logged in that I had to allow popups or I couldn't actually watch or play any of the games.

reporter: do you still see the problem?
have you tried to update plugins to latest version? (now are flash 9.0.47 and java 1.6.0 update2)

Closing this bug as INCOMPLETE due to lack of updates.

Earl, without further information, we can't figure out what's wrong. If you can still reproduce using Firefox 2.0.0.6 or later and can provide us more information, please comment in this bug.

I had no problem playing any games on Yahoo! Games after installing the JRE.
