Firefox 2 and games.

Postby steve9199 » Sat Jun 07, 2008 6:18 am

Hello-

Still lurking in the group, and working on making my Linux Mint experience more enjoyable. Everything in Daryna running smoother thanks to all the great suggestions in this forum....thank you all.

One problem still happening though. Trying to play games on Pogo.com, the games are slow and for the lack of a better term... "jumpy". I have gone through all of the suggested Firefox configuration suggestions to speed the browser up but to no avail. Is it possibly the Java plugin itself? Does anyone have a suggestion?

Hardware:
Dell Optiplex GX 260
2 Gig Ram
Intel Celeron 1.8 GHz Processor

ANY help will be appreciated.

Thanks.. Steve

How is your internet connection?

You can always try uninstalling Java, and replace it with the open source version, icetea. I don't know if that will help you or not, but it's an idea anyway. Icetea by the way is also made by Sun.

Internet is Cable 10 Meg DL 1 Meg UL. Having no issues when I run the Windows XP half of my Dual Boot drive. Only Mint and Firefox. I also have Firefox on my Win XP side and it works SCREAMINGLY fast there.

A suggestion was to uninstall Java and replace it with icetea. Not quite sure how to do the install though. I'm still a rookie when it comes to Linux so if you have a walkthrough I could follow it would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks...Steve
