Gamepads won't work on anything

I started up some games today to play and neither of my game pads will work. I've restarted several times, logged in and out and tried playing on different browsers but nothing seems to have worked. I even tried the controllers on other things and they work, so it's not an isuse with my USB drives or the controllers themselves- it just seems that none of the emulators on here want to recognize them or some reason. Any help?

Re: Gamepads won't work on anything

Interesting that I only have this problem with the Sega games. All other systems I can use my Xarcade but for Sega games I have to use my keyboard. Not even the Sega controller that Kong sent me works.

Genesis games refuse to recognize the d-pad on the PS3 controller, so I have to use the analog stick. It's weird and the only console on here I have problems with.

Re: Gamepads won't work on anything

neither of my controllers (xbox and a snes-esque controller) seem to work anymore on any console at all. they were fine a couple of days ago then this happens. i guess if there's no way to fix it i'm going to have to restort to xpadder or something.

Re: Gamepads won't work on anything

it's possible, but i don't remember upgrading Firefox recently. Plus it doesn't work on Internet Explorer either.

i haven't tried Chrome yet so i'm going to try that.
