I have a site that plays a number of Flash movies.
I am using the web standard javascript supplied at: http://blog.deconcept.com/2004/10/14/we ... and-embed/

The javascript code I am using is:
var myFlashObject = new FlashObject("qmaster.swf", "movie", "550", "400", 6, "#000000");
myFlashObject.addParam("movie", filename);
myFlashObject.addVariable("dataUrl",param);
myFlashObject.write();

The param equates to "dataUrl=somemovie.swf" which is picked up by Flash.

These movies are fine in IE6 but just result in a blank screen in Firefox.
Can anyone tell me where I have gone wrong?
Cheers

IIRC I think you have to put a copy of each plug-in, Flash, Javascript, Quicktime,etc somewhere in the Mozzila folder. Someone will probably chime in with the exact path. Moreover a search for Plug-ins may reveal the path.

My plugins folder at path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins contains the following files:
flashplayer.xpt
GetFlash (application)
GetFlash.exe.manifest
npnul32.dll
npswf32.dll

Am I missing some required files here?

if you are using window and installed firefox using the window installer, them firefox should get plugins for QT, Real, WMP, java, adobe and automaticly installed ... but ... you will have to reinstall flash and shockwave .... even if you have then allready installed on your computer ...

as to firefox not working at your site ... give a URL ...
have you tried to run your code at either one of these???

The culrit url is http://www.quizqueen.com/s_kids.aspx - click on any of the kids quizzes.
(forgive the numerous lines of edited javascript in the quiz window - been trying everything!)

I have reinstalled Firefox and the Flash plugin but still no joy.

Cheers
