And, I am using a FF Add on called "Flash Resizer".

Now I'm not part of the admin team and I'm not great at coding and the like. Yet to me it seems like since you are using a add-on and changing the size of the Flash window, it's your own fault. The arrows were not designed with that sort of thing in mind. You'll notice that games with a pre-made fullscreen mode don't have that issue.
To put it in perspective, it would be like trying to drive a sedan with monster truck tires and complaining that it doesn't get the advertised MPG.

Yeh; Invisible, a first thing to try would be to temporarily disable that Resizer add-on, and see how you fare. Just using your Fullscreen and/or Zoom functions* as and if required. (I rarely if ever do, at ArmorGames.)

* Both under "View" in your browser, or usually F11 for fullscreen and back, ctrl-+ and - to zoom in/out, ctrl-0 to reset.

Chances are the issue will go away for you.

Bumping this. I just clicked, accidentally the prev link while playing a game and lost my progress. The cursor tends to wander in game where you ust move the mouse to aim. It is very possible for the mouse to wander off the screen and click those links.

The problem might be bigger for some people than others simply because of the games they play and how they play them.
If its an action game and you frantically move your mouse around a bit and click outside the game area, the game will usually pause... which is fine, but i keep getting unlucky enough to click the last game button.
I use chrome, and i simply zoom the page.

The resolution of my screen makes it impractical to play at default zoom.
I have a 27" display and without zoom many games have a window the size of my phone.

There should be an easy way to disable those buttons.
I know what game i played last, if i want to play it i can go back to it.
Chances are its a last played game cause it wasnt good and i moved onto another one.

Frankly... looking around this has been a problem for some people for a while now, i dont understand why something hasnt been done about this yet.

It is incredibly annoying when playing shooters. I keep clicking on one of the prev/next links in an intense fight and it exits the game and I need to restart the match. I've just stopped playing Raze2 for this reason. Remove them.

I never had this problem before, do we all have different window sizes or something?

i have a high resolution screen and increase the size of the page so i can use more of the screen to play the game also. if i have the real-estate than why not use it. and some people might be more frantic with their mouse movements than others, but it may depend more on the game.

Anyways.... here is what i came up with...
Using Chrome...
add an extension called Stylebot...
when on an armorgames page, or a AG game page hit Alt+M
select Edit CSS at the bottom of the window
enter this code
a.related-tab { display: none; }
and click save
