    Firefox gets hung-up on external rollover "loadMovie" jpgs

    mcarpenta Level 1
      I have my first website up, and I'm trying to optimize it now, in both IE & Firefox...but having minor issues...

      http://mikepentaproductions.com/

      -- skip intro, then click any section --

      When you rollover the (pentagon-shaped) buttons (in each section), Firefox randomly gets hung up...not loading / unloading the external jpgs fast enough, and then they get stuck and stay visible instead of disappearing "onRollOut"....seems to work fine in IE, just a little slow...

      Is there any way I can improve my actionscript to fix this Firefox problem and optimize my images to load faster in both browsers?...(like some kind of "preloader" script or something like that?)

      THE CODE:
      --------------------------------------------------
      -- (code on the timeline) --
      --------------------------------------------------
      ThmbA.loadMovie("images/imageA.jpg");

      btn1.onRollOver=function() {
      mc1.loadMovie("images/image1.jpg");
      }
      btn1.onRollOut=function() {
      mc1.unloadMovie("images/image1.jpg");
      }
      --------------------------------------------------
      -- (code on the buttons) --
      --------------------------------------------------
      on (rollOver) {
      setProperty ("ThmbA", _visible, "0");
      }
      on (rollOut) {
      setProperty ("ThmbA", _visible, "1");
      }
      --------------------------------------------------
