I had my flash animation running fine in FF but now it keeps directing me to the adobe site to download flash which is already installed.

Im using the SWFObject2.1 .js file so flash runs ok with lightbox.

It works fine in IE, Opera, safari. really dont know whats happened as it worked fine about 2 days ago...

any help would be really appreciated.

Hello David, and welcome to the forums.

This sounds like a script or code conflict. Are you by any chance running the Adblock extension on Firefox3? There was a bug in the Adblock add-on that incorrectly blocked the SWFObject 1.5 code (Google Code reference [code.google.com]). It may be the same with SWFObject 2.1
