I have created a banner file in Flash and when embedding an swf file on the html page the swf banner appears to be "jumping" up and down when the page is longer and needs to be scrolled. This only happens when scrolling the page.
I put up an example here:
You can see the black swf box jumping towards the red dots when scrolling.
This turns out to be a problem on a website I'm working with since it's creating a rather nervous vibe to the whole feel of the site - example here:
Any ideas what's causing this?
I am using Dreamweaver and Flash cs3.
It seems to be a problem in all the browsers.
Everything looks fine here (Windows 7, FF 15, IE 9, Opera 12, Safari 5 and Chrome 21), it may just be that you need an update to your flash player or browser.
Firefox had all kinds of problems with the Flash plug-in in FF13-14, 15 cleared everything up as far as I've seen..
I don't see it either. That said, Flash may not be your best option these days since Flash is not supported by any Apple iDevices. Those visitors will see nothing.
A jQuery slideshow or rotating banner would reach a much wider audience with fewer collateral problems.
Thank you Jon and Nancy for your replies.
Sorry it took me a little while to figure out how to reply here.
I’m happy this is not a problem on each computer according to your replies.
I believe Java Script would be more up to date way of doing this, but the original idea was more complicated – with animated text and such so that’s why flash. I thought just to make a static picture that will show in ipads and such when flash is not supported.
I can still see that jumping thing although I updated my flash player and otherwise have just the same browser versions as Jon.
Thank you guys!
