Hi all,

This is strange problem and would appreciate any help I can get. I've made a flash movie and it works well on all browsers on my local machine. When I put it on the server, it somehow will not load on Firefox. Works well on Internet Explorer. I've checked the permissions of the file.

Here's the code it used:

 <object classid='clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000' codebase='http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0' width='510' height='100' id='linstead_banner' align='middle'>
<param name='allowScriptAccess' value='sameDomain' />
<param name='movie' value='images/linstead_banner.swf' />
<param name='quality' value='high' />
<param name='wmode' value='transparent' />
<embed src='images/linstead_banner.swf' quality='high' wmode='transparent' width='510' height='100' name='linstead_banner' align='middle' allowScriptAccess='sameDomain' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' />
</object>

What makes this weirder is when I tried embeding some existing flash movies from the server into my page, it works fine.

Many thanks in advance.

Just found the problem, got a hint from the firefox forums. It was AdBlock's fault. It filtered all files with "_banner" out. Darn it wasted the whole afternoon.

Thanks for looking anyway.
