What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.
We suggest you install the latest version of one of these browsers:

Clearing your cookies or cache, or running a defrag program or other cleanup wizard will clear your files. It is your fault, not the games fault. (actually, I’d blame adobe flash, I’ve had my save files deleted at least 3 times.)
Game save files are on your computer, not a server, not the game, not kongregate, and not your account. Because they are on your computer, it is possible to back them up.
If you want to find your search files on your computer: (windows)
1) Save any game.
2) Open up the search function in one of your folders.
3) Narrow it down by setting “date modified:” to today (if you followed step one, this should work properly). Make sure you’re searching in the C: drive. IMPORTANT: Allow it to search hidden folders too.
4) Search for “.sol” under all files and folders. .sol files are the type of files that flash uses for save files.
6) A list of save files should appear. You can go up to the parent folder, the save files should be in chat.kongregate.com. If you want to back up your games, copy the chat.kongregate.com folder some place safe.
To import your save files, all you have to do is a put your old save and replace the new one. Replace the .sol, not the folder.
I know this post is old, but this info should still be helpful to many people on kong.
