I enjoy using a site named The JigsawPuzzels.com.  Since Flash Player is no longer available on Chrome I have not been able to load this site as in the past. The puzzle loads in a  " funky" way with tiny misshaped pieces. The site says to use Control R keys which makes no difference. OR clear browser cache, which I have done. Neither of these two solutions helped. Microsoft says to use an alternative to Flash. But then what? Does it automatically connect or what steps would I need to do to make something like that work? 

Stuck at home..really miss using this site.

Adobe announced Flash Player's end-of-life in July 2017 giving content creators, programmers, developers, IT experts, etc over 3 years remove Flash Player dependencies from their products. All modern browsers provide the capabilities necessary to do this in JavaScript.  This is an investment and prioritization choice, not a technical limitation. 

  

For reference:

  • Apple Safari - removed Flash Player support in Safari 14, released Sept 16, 2020

Look at non-flash, HTML5 -based puzzles like this one.  I'm sure a Google search will reveal many more.

Chrome and MS Edge have stopped supporting Flash Player for the same reason ALL browsers stopped supporting 3rd party plugins  -- concerns about security. This planned phaseout of all browser plugins has been in the works for years in cooperation with Apple, Microsoft, Google, Safari, Opera, Mozilla and more...

Thank you for the answer and for the suggestion.

Believe me, I did search for other puzzle sites and none compare to what I
was using before.

At this point, I will give up and find something else to pass the time.
