Running Facebook games on Ubuntu
 
Hi Everyone, I've been using face book with Ubuntu with no problems till today. I tried to play a new game "Words of Wonder" and received an error message saying "Your O/S is not supported, supported operated systems are "Windows xp, Windows Vista, Windows 7"
Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone help me to get round this problem?
Thanks in advance

Are the java games
if so there is a new zero-day exploit in the wild
firefox might be blocking them

hopefully IE 8 or 9 will also block java

Have you tried using one of the many browser addons that spoof your user agent?

Thanks for your helpful replies everyone. Funnily enough, I uninstalled WINE and everything now works! Don't know why or how.
