    Can someone please tell me why my flex swf isnt appearing in firefox?

    BryBam Level 1

      Like the title says, could someone possibly explain to me what im doing wrong with embedding this swf? **My code works fine in chrome**...But doesn't appear in FireFox, and it look compacted in IE, like its only set to a 5% height or something.

       

       

      All I want to do is have the swf scale  to 80% width(then i use the margin:0 auto; to center it), then 75% height. Theres a header, small ad at the top, and a footer at the bottom. All while being compatable with Chrome, FF, IE.

       

       

      Incase possibly this matters..in my Flex Project I set the swf height and width to 100%. I figured since it's being embeded inside the `.mainContainer` div, the swf would then assume its parent(mainContainer)'s width and height wich is set to width:80% and height:75%. **And it does it chrome just fine** but like i said above the swf doesn't appear in FF. I thought maybe i should note this incase it's necessary information to solve this bug.

       

       

      I didn't think this would be too hard but I can't seem to get the swf to load in FF. I'm seeing the swf making connects to some netConnections and stuff like its there, i just cant see anything.

       

       

      -What am i doing wrong?

      -Is there a better way I should be implementing the swf?

      -How can i figure out whats wrong on my own in the future?

       

       

      (im so used to working in Flash builder on flash projects, the debugging is so simple, informative, and easy to use. With only having access to "inspector" in chrome which never spits out any useful information I feel like im coding in the dark compared to using eclipse)

       

       

       

       

      **EDIT:**

      1 more thing I should mention. Pretty much the entire "embed" code provided here was auto generated by Flash Builder. I created .mainContainer around the "embed" code and all the extra  divs around it... my header, footer,ect. Without any of my extra content, the swf appears just fine like you would expect it in firefox. SO my point in saying this is i do not think its **literally** the embed code. Because that embed code works in FF. It's just how im implemented my header, and div around this flash content that seems to break the code in FF for some reason.
