Lovatts puzzles

  • I've been using the Opera browser on Windows for years, but have never been able to use the browser to interact with any puzzles on the Lovatts puzzle site https://lovattspuzzles.com/online-puzzles-competitions/.
    The puzzles work fine on Chrome, Microsft Edge, FireFox etc.
    Is there an extension or setting I'm missing out on for Opera or is it a bug with the browser?

  • Which ones, or all of them? The Flash-based puzzles will be a problem, as all major browsers are slowly dropping support for Flash. They should still work currently once you enable Flash on that page, but it isn't quite simple - and will cease working completely in a few months.

  • @sgunhouse It is the original puzzles that have never played (all the Crosswords, Word Search, Trivia Quiz, Code Cracker, Sudoku). The newer puzzles play fine (Wheel Words, Crypto Quiz, Sudoku Shapeshifter, Addoku). I haven't come across any other sites where Flash content has caused a problem.

  • @srazz said in Lovatts puzzles:

    (all the Crosswords

    I tried a Crossword puzzle on the first page and sees to work for me.

    Thanks for the site by the way.

  • @rossini It is a good puzzle site 🙂
    I can't think what the problem is. I just get a blank space where the puzzle should be. The problem has followed me through Windows 7 and Windows 10, several years of Opera iterations and across different laptops/desktops. I've always used standard installation settings (for both Windows or Opera). I don't know what to look at that might be the issue. I think that I'll just have to live with it.
