SWF freezes in Firefox after hitting back button, need help!

Hi all, this is my first post, and I'm sure I'll receive some sort of hate for posting this in the wrong area, but I'm really desperate for help and don't feel like searching further for the "correct forum." Anyway, I created a swf for the "education" page for a liquor store, it navigates through wine, beer, and liquor. All the links work well, however after you go to (for example) the liquor page, when you hit the "back button" on the browser, going back to the page with my swf file, the movie freezes after the first animation. I don't understand it, it only happens with firefox, which to my knowledge is one of the more progressive browsers, so what gives?! It even works perfectly on IE and my android phone, so I'm at a complete loss, as I'm more a designer than programmer. Please take a look and offer any obvious advice. I would be willing to make the video in AS3 if that is the only option, I just have no clue how to implement AS3... so confusing. The link to the swf in use is: http://www.whitehorsewine.com/education.php Each book having a button that triggers a movieclip with AS2. The movieclips all have stop(); at the end of them. The rest of the coding is in the timeline on a seperate layer:

 

stop();

 

beer_book.onRollOver = function() {

    gotoAndStop("beerframe");

}

beer_book.onRollOut = function() {

    gotoAndStop(1);

}

beer_book.onRelease = function() {

    getURL("http://www.whitehorsewine.com/beer.php");

}

 

wine_book.onRollOver = function() {

    gotoAndStop("wineframe");

}

wine_book.onRollOut = function() {

    gotoAndStop(1);

}

wine_book.onRelease = function() {

    getURL("http://www.whitehorsewine.com/wine.php");

}

 

liquor_book.onRollOver = function() {

    gotoAndStop("liquorframe");

}

liquor_book.onRollOut = function() {

    gotoAndStop(1);

}

liquor_book.onRelease = function() {

    getURL("http://www.whitehorsewine.com/Liquor_Types.php");

}

    i don't see a problem using ff. 

     

    you could update your flash player and see if that solves the problem that you see (but i won't help others using ff with your fp version).

    it doesn't freeze for me so, it's probably a flash player issue.
