Thanks kglad. I did try your suggestion, in both Firefox and IE, but no change. I think you've mis-read the situation. The NEW file is being fetched, despite the .swf referring to the old one.
something's not as you explain it.
try to put together a sample fla and pdf that displays the issue.
Your scepticism is understandable! The .swf involved is one of many loaded by the site so I've made a cut down version and used it in a new, single page site here.
The entire code is below. You will see that getURL only calls PriceList_2.***
The content of the downloads folder is:
PriceList_4.zip - // this is actually PriceList_3.zip but renamed on the server
On my Windows system at least, in Firefox and IE, all three buttons work, but they download the above files, not the one called. Apart from the borrowed and stripped down .fla this is an entirely new site created for this test. I couldn't reproduce the behaviour initially because I placed the downloads in the same folder as the .html and .swf, but when I move them to /downloads it "worked"!
I'm guessing this isn't a Flash thing, perhaps a Linux peculiarity? On my testing server, IIS, this site throws an error.
Whatever it is that's happening its external to flash
Your server returns a HTTP response for the pricelist_2 request saying HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
and redirects to:
So this will happen in the browser as well.
