X-Director Plugin For Mozilla/RedHat V9 ?

I'm trying to access www . jumble . com to play the daily jumble word game. The first problem was that shockwave was not installed, so I installed it and everything appears to be ok in that regard (help plugins shows application/x-shockwave-flash is installed & enabled ). Now I get an error that says it needs plug-in application/x-director. I've spent a lot of time searching the web for a solution but not finding much help.

I've seen some indication that this only works with WINE, if that's the only possible solution then it's more trouble than it's worth. Can someone confirm this or is it possible to get a Mozilla plugin for this?

There is no native Director plugin (yet) so you need either Wine or the crossover plugin to use director based software on Linux. Hopefully this will change one day
