I'm having some serious problems with a Shockwave bug regarding the behavior of postNetText.
In a Shockwave test movie I've created, I'm calling an in-house web service as follows:
on makeRequest theRequestURL
gNetID = postNetText(theRequestURL, member("PostString").text, "UNIX", "ASCII")
where I've entered a valid request string in the text field "PostString".
When I run this in Safari/Mac, the server sees the request twice, in rapid succession.
When I run this in Firefox/Mac, the server sees the request just once.
In both cases, I do get a valid response back. (The problem is that one of the calls I make creates entries in a data table on the server, and the doubled request causes the entry to get created twice. Bad.)
What I've tried:
I'm hoping this can get fixed, or a workaround suggested, since an ongoing issue with vanishing content when running Shockwave in Firefox on the Mac make that option unusable.
