Flash with Opera and Firefox

Hi everybody,

iīm new to the webmasteworld message board, and also new to hmtl.

I just finish this webpage, which all of it, is done with Flash (ver. 8.0). My problem and question is, i guess very simple. So i know that, for a lot you webgenious, this will sound ridiculous.

The problem is that the flash movies do not load with Opera and Firefox, however it works perfectly with IE.

Is there something i have to write in the index.html file so that it works fine with Opera and Firefox? or is it something with my domain server that does not support those browsers?

Thanks in advance,

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Tobin!

If you have only recently downloaded Opera and Firefox, you should first make sure that the Flash plugin is correctly installed in each browser.

Head over to [macromedia.com...] in both browsers and install/reinstall the Flash plugin, then try your site again. :)

If that doesn't work, how are you calling the Flash file in your page?

I did install/reinstall the flash plugin in both browsers...

hereīs my soure code of my index.html file


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<title>FEEDBACK Consultor&iacute;a de Imagen</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type="text/css">
body {
margin-left: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

function openNewWindow(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures) {
newWindow=window.open(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures);

<div align="center">
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="990" height="590" align="middle">
<param name="movie" value="intro.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high"><param name="BGCOLOR" value="#FFFFFF"><param name="SCALE" value="noborder">
<embed src="creatividad.swf" width="990" height="590" align="middle" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" scale="noborder"></embed>

The flash file is called "intro.swf" and itīs located in the same folder as the index.html file...

I mean if the path would be incorrect IE would not load it as well, but it does...Another thing is that Opera does other flash sites...except this one...i have no idea what is the bug...

Thanks for your help Encyclo

The flash file is called "intro.swf"

<embed src="creatividad.swf"


<embed src="intro.swf"

Also, have a look at this thread [webmasterworld.com]. Your movie may stop working somewhere next month...

you can also disable Flash/plugins from the quick F12 preferences.

I run with flash off exclusively as it cuts way down on the highly annoying flash ads.
