1. After the game is over and in the last screen of the phase where the answer key is presented, the button says "next answer" instead of "Done".
2. When I get 100% in the game, and opt for the next round, the first question of the next round is displayed in the applet but without displaying the "Done" button. So can not proceed further.

We have a naming policy in the Big Moose Saloon, which requires both a first name and a last name. Thus, I'll have to ask you to modify your display name accordingly.

These are known problems with the original game. Have you tried the Beta version (link below the original game)?

Getting the following exception in the console and a blank page is getting displayed when I click on the link for beta version. Do I have to set something in my machine. Can you guess the problem using this exception. Please help.
HTTP: Connection failure with 407

10.4.8 407 Proxy Authentication Required

This code is similar to 401 (Unauthorized), but indicates that the
client must first authenticate itself with the proxy. The proxy MUST
return a Proxy-Authenticate header field (section 14.33) containing a
challenge applicable to the proxy for the requested resource. The
client MAY repeat the request with a suitable Proxy-Authorization
header field (section 14.34). HTTP access authentication is explained
in "HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access Authentication"

Your proxy is asking for some sort of authentication. I don't know why because the game doesn't need any kind of password stuff to load or play.

I'm trying to play around with a proxy to figure it out, but so far, no luck. My proxy is not giving me that error. And I've checked with other people who have played the game using a proxy with no problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
