It appears there is a bug in your Scripts/swfobject_modified.js script.


If I change:

function setVisibility(id, isVisible) {
var v = isVisible ? "visible" : "hidden";
if (isDomLoaded) {
getElementById(id).style.visibility = v;
}
else {
createCSS("#" + id, "visibility:" + v);
}
}




to:

function setVisibility(id, isVisible) {
var v = isVisible ? "visible" : "visible";
if (isDomLoaded) {
getElementById(id).style.visibility = v;
}
else {
createCSS("#" + id, "visibility:" + v);
}
}



I can get the banner to load.

When i view source of the js file, it is still using the old syntax:
var v = isVisible ? "visible" : "hidden";


the change does not appear to be uploaded.

It looks like there is a problem in the flash swf file itself. The swf file is being loaded, that is what is producing the blue background, but the carousel images are not loading, Have you tried adding the flash object to a plain page to get it working in FireFox? if you can get it working in a plain page, we could debug what the difference is, but it looks like an issue with linking the images within the flash file.

Odd - I can see the swf in firefox by directly accessing it at

carousel.swf

- but not on the actual page that references it. I'm using Firefox 3.5.5 on Vista SP3

I can get it to run in firefox in a plain html page...the link is carousel.html ....so maybe the problem is the code in the php doc?

The code for adding the object to the page and the javascript code on this page is very different from what is on the other page.



try using the code from this page on your index page.

it doesn't work at all when i take the code generated by flash's html and paste it into the template. I really don't understand why it works in safari and IE but just not Firefox...
