shockwave/java/flash games in web browser not working

Hey everybody, I've converted my neighbour over to Artix Linux from Windows & thankfully most things have worked out for my neighbour pretty well, but there are some games on pogo.com that don't work, most do but some that require an account won't play.


www.pogo.com/games/addiction

The game is called "pogo addiction solitaire"

If anyone knows how to get this to work, your knowledge would be greatly appreciated! I read an old post about it from 2013 on ubuntuforums but don't know if it would work or not

"   Firefox browser version 42 is not working well with Java Version J8U65. We recommend using the latest version of Internet Explorer 11"

This is the error I'm getting on Firefox, but Firefox is like... version 60...



"Pogo requires the latest version of Java on your computer. Note: Java is not supported in Google Chrome version 42 or above or Firefox 42. Please use the latest version of Internet Explorer. Learn more here. "

There are several versions of JRE in Arch's repos, you could install them side by side and activate each one in turn with archlinux-java. Perhaps you'll get lucky.
