I guess I better start from the beginning...WW was running fine for me using Internet Explorer until the other week (or month, maybe...who knows...time is just a blur, lol ) and all I could get was the green loading screen.
I posted my troubles here and several people suggested I switch browsers to Firefox (which I thought I already had, but apparently not on THIS computer). When I switched browsers and tried to get on WW the log-in box was the message that I need to download Adobe, which I did.
Unfortunately, the link was to install Adobe 188.8.131.52...I thought I had read somewhere that that version was bugged, but being the WW addict I am, I downloaded it anyway, cause I just wanted to get back on the game
It ran fine for a little while, but for about the past week or so, it has been crashing while trying to unpack my dock (see screenshot below)
I have been dealing with it (logging out and relogging in and 99% of the time that would take care of it). It has just gotten to the point to where logging / relogging is not working anymore, so I thought, "Well, I'll just see what version of Adobe I have" and it tuns out I had the 11.blah, blah, blah AS WELL AS 10 ActiveX and the Adobe Reader 8.1.2.
So I thought, "Well, I'll just get rid of the 11.blah, blah, blah since that's the troublemaker and I'll be good to go"
EEENNNGGGHHH (buzzer noise, lol), wrong answer. I uninstalled it and now I'm back to zero because I got the WW home page that says I need to download the Adobe player again...ugh!!! (see screenshot below)
Sooooo...is there a different version of Adobe I can use with Firefox that isn't bugged??!!
On a side note, Hubby has been using Internet Explorer with Adobe 10 ActiveX all along with no troubles whatsoever...I don't get it, lol...why me?
Some of our library computers get this message, but if you paste: Welcome to Webkinz
(use above with right button & open in new tab, or use next line, removing space between p & : }
into the address bar WW loads using the flash on the system.
If you haven't tried this, give it a shot.
This is an alternate address, the one the login on the customer service tab directs you to.
This is also the one that some use to open multiple windows where they otherwise couldn't.
If it doesn't work, try reloading the older version of flash.

I have this same problem. I have started always unloading my dock via The Kinzstyle Outlet rather than "Get Items From Storage" and I seem to have more luck that way. I would recommend that you clean out your dock when you do manage to get it open. I did that and now I crash much less.
I had a Firefoz update waiting for me this morning!! Hopefully it will improve things as well.
Well, I don't know how helpful this is going to be but Adobe offers slightly different flashplayers for systems, not only browsers.
If you go here Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player and enter your system, in the second pulldown menu it should automatically select what flashplayer is best. Never had to do that myself, because I use chrome which has flash built in...
As for crashing when loading dock, even when I use chrome this happens to me sometimes . I probably should clear it out, but I have nowhere to put all of my items....
Oh yes, and if you have Flash "disabled" it'll give you the same "download plugin" sign that tells you to download it in most browsers.

Firefox I do have to say is one of the worst browsers for webkinz. Because since webkinz relies heavily on using adobe flash player and firefox isn't one of the 'good for many types of software" browsers. I would suggest for one clearing your cache and seeing what happens. Also when I close out tabs it helps a lot. Hope this helps.
