bug with flash in linux


There appears to be a bug with the Linux version of Flash. Is anyone able to render this site properly in Linux? One of my friends said he was
going to install Firefox in Wine to view that website. Also there's been debate, and many people are saying that Firefox runs faster in Wine than it
does natively in Linux.

I never felt the urge to run a Windows program that is also made for Linux via Wine.

The site loads up just fine, but there don't appear to be any links in it to do anything. There is the "Play" text, but there's no link to it.

I like the skateboarding reference in your name.

It's not a Firefox in general problem. When I was playing that game in Wintendo, I went to that site using Firefox, and it displayed properly. I just tried using Epiphany, and it displays worse than in Firefox.

It's a game that runs like gold in wine according to many people's ratings on at the wine application database.

Strange that it doesn't work in konqueror for you.
It does for me on slackware 12 with flash-player-plugin-9.0.115.0
In firefox i can't see the page but in konqeror i can see it as it should be.
