I have some flash on a page and it is showing fine in ie, but not showing at all in firefox.
How can I modify it so that is shows in firefox? Maybe I need an embed??????
<DIV style="FLOAT: right">
<OBJECT codeBase=" http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" classid=clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000>
<param name="movie" value="http://www.rowby.com/dentist/swi-again-for-swishzone-999.swf">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">
You can do 1 of 2 things.
1. Add the embed portion of the object. This is necessary for all browsers other than IE (pretty much) - as they look at the embed line, and not the object as a whole (where IE looks at the object and not the embed.)
This is what a standard object/embed looks like for a SWF:
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" id="myMovieName"> <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="myFlashMovie.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <EMBED href="/support/flash/ts/documents/myFlashMovie.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" NAME="myMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED> </OBJECT>
2. Use a third-party JS class to embed your Flash. The most commonly used is swfObject (it is a standard, actually). http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/
