I cannot see the interactive crossword puzzles...


I have a SONY VAIO laptop.
Intel Core2 Duo 2 GHz, 4 gb memory 250 GB hard disk,
running Puppy Linux 0.43 on a USB stick an RAM.

I absolutely love the system, but have one nagging problem. I like to work the interactive crossword puzzles, but they do not appear. Other videos and such have no problem. (Youtube, online games, etc.) Of course the printable puzzles show up fine.
I would assume (assume = makes an ass out of u and me, especially me.) there is a glitch somewhere with java, but that is only my guess.
Any help would be appreciated.

Well that sounds more like an educated guess than an assumption! Do you know that this interactive crossword site uses Java? It sounds more like something that flash is used for, but you did say that online games work.

Check your browser settings and see if Java is allowed. Might as well check Javascript as well (which is only related to Java by its name).

Thanks for the reply,jschiwal,

Yes, I did that. Browser seems set with Java enabled. Got me stumped, for sure.

What about Java Script? They are two separate and unrelated items. Enabling Java does not enable java script.

Blocking software such as noscript in Firefox will stop scripts for running.

Give web address of puzzle(s) so others may test them with Puppy Linux.

The puzzle site you posted displays the crossword, but I can't enter the letters. It has tons of scripts I had to enable that noscript were blocking and noscript still was blocking xss (cross site scripts). Do you have another example because I don't trust this one.

It seems that they may be confused about the distinction

Code:
<TITLE>Saturday Crossword Puzzle</TITLE>
   <meta name="keywords" CONTENT="crossword puzzles Saturday crossword interactive puzzles Java crossword puzzle games crosswords daily crossword interactive print and solve Java crosswrod crosword puzzle  game fun  About.com About">

...but, probably, you need both.

Also, if the slowest thing that you can imagine is a hibernating tortoise, prepare to experience something that makes that tortoise seem quick. Very quick. You may have got used to going away and making a cup of coffee waiting for a page to load. Here, you can start growing the coffee plant...

I have to put this project on hold for a time. Job requires I take a (hopefully) short trip. Thanks for the inputs and I will jump back on this as soon as I can.
