SIFR suddenly stopped working?

 11:18 pm on Jul 5, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have a website with both local and live versions, the live version's sIFR doesn't work with Firefox 3 (Win) all of a sudden (it was).

It seems that the text is being replaced, but there is an 'invisible' flash element embeded which displays "movie not loaded" when you right click it.

It works fine under Safari and Internet Explorer but I have tested FF 3 on three different Windows machines with no luck. I'd really rather not upgrade to version 3 of sIFR because I did some stuff with the text in flash which I can't easily replicate.

The only thing that has changed is I had to re-install Analytics, this is the code for both as they appear on the page just before the </body> tag.

Any ideas?

<script type="text/javascript">
if(typeof sIFR == "function"){
sIFR.replaceElement(named({sSelector:"body div h1", sFlashSrc:"images/ccc_custom.swf", sColor:"#FFFFFF", sLinkColor:"#000000", sBgColor:"#3399CC", sHoverColor:"#CCCCCC", nPaddingTop:0, nPaddingLeft:5, nPaddingBottom:8, sCase:"upper", sWmode: "transparent" }));
<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("---REMOVED---");

Did it stop working before or after the analytics re-install? If after, was there any time that it was working afterwards?

I'm not really sure because I just uploaded it and didn't bother checking it.

Something I did try is uploading the sifr.js file and it started working. AFAIK, it was exactly the same (and why would that affect the scripts ability to not work just in FF3?)

Anyway, it is all working now :)

Well, glad you got it working again. :)
