First of all, you need to be more specific. Provide details of the problem, post a terminal output, etc...

Run firefox in the Terminal and post what it outputs in this forum.

Hi Phil

I dont do facebook, but I would guess that the games are Flash or Java based.
Check and see if a Flash Player and Java are installed, Java should be enabled
in Firefox.

Also give us some more details about your system, what games you are trying to play,
