Since Firefox updated a couple of days ago, none of the games on Kongregate are connecting (red plug). Is there a known issue? I have tried other browsers and the site works normally; I just prefer to use Firefox.

> On Firefox, assuming you are using the latest version, click the “Firefox” tab in the top left corner, and select “Options” (and then Options again). From here go to “Advanced”. Then choose the “Network” tab, and you’ll see “Connections” and then “Settings”. Open up your settings and make sure Firefox is set to have “No Proxy”. Restart browser afterwards.

My problem is slightly different. The achievement server connects on new and different games for me….but not for Badge Of The Day games. (ANd, yes, this is with Firefox 15.0.1.) Any alternative to downgrading the version?

Not at all, I’m afraid.
So I’m in a weird situation where I connect just fine for games like Bloons TD 5 and Legacy of Heroes, but I get nothing for City Siege 2 and Boom Town (even though I’ve completed the achievements for Boom Town).

> Well that’s odd. Does it do this from other web browsers besides Firefox?
I just tried with MSIE v6, and it connected for Boom Town just fine.

> You used Internet Explore 6? Are you kidding?
??? No, not kidding; that’s the IE browser I have (and barely use; my preference is Firefox).
That said, I had no trouble connecting to Multitask 2 today, so the issue isn’t necessarily Badge-Of-The-Day focused.
Hey, been playing CloudStone for about 2 weeks and I’m loving it. Having trouble getting in for the past 2 days though. I go to Kongregate, click on CloudStone and it loads except for the last inch on the load bar. Can’t get in to play. Reloaded numerous times, restarted computer numerous times, but can’t get in. Tried to load on Firefox and Internet Explorer, but no go.Anybody have any idea what the deal is?
Went into Firefox options and checked No Proxy, dumped out of FF browser and came back in, no change. It loads to the Cloudstone beginning where the load bar is, but it seems to be frozen about an inch from a complete load. Tried IE and the same thing happens. This started yesterday and haven’t been able to get on since. I really like this game and want to be able to play. Can anybody help me? Thanks
I have the same problem as the original poster, but downgrading did not fix the problem. I’ve downgraded to 14.01, disabled plugins I don’t need, upgraded Flash, disabled automatic updates, cleared cache, and disabled firewalls and anti-virus. For any game I try to load, it merely says “Game Info loaded” in the chat area and the game and chat never load. Everything works great in Chrome.
