It would only work on Internet Explorer, but now can't get it to work on any browser. I've downloaded a fresh Javascript and Flash player to no avail.

In Chrome, when I copy/paste the first URL you provided, it works fine. However, also using Chrome, when I follow your second link, it seems to take me to the correct page but I get an error message saying that "Java was blocked because it is out of date" with the option to "run this time" or "update the plugin".
