Open SWF with Firefox

Head over to wherever you saved it (My Documents for us) and right click on your newly saved Flash game, select Open With, then Firefox (assuming you don’t have a version of Adobe Flash installed).

Playing Portal: The Flash Version Locally

Firefox will open our Flash game and have it pretty much fill the entire space. That’s it! You now have a local copy of the Flash game (although saved games will not travel with you as they are locked to the current computer).
