The following PopCap games require a plug-in which I have installed but does not work with the most current updates of Firefox: Astropop, Bonnie's Bookstore, Bookworm Adventures, Chuzzle, Hammer Heads, Heavy Weapon, Insaniquarium, Peggle, and Pixelus. As I said, I have the most recent version of the plug-in already installed, however Firefox doesn't seem to try to access it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.popcap.com/allgames.php?p=online
2. Load any of the games listed above.

Actual Results:  
The site states that the plug-in is needed, even though I have already installed it, so I can't play the games.

Expected Results:  
It should play the games.

Similar problem with PopCap for Bookworm at games.yahoo.com/console/bw. Game starts normally, runs normally for 17 seconds (on my XP system), and then disappears.

Problem still there in Firefox 4.0.1. Seems similar to previous JRE bug that prevented some apps from running in 3.14.x. Is there a resolution to this?
