do you have a link to the problem page, or the source to the problem page? Going to need to be a bit more specific with this problem. :)

I am having this same issue as well. It seems to only happen on Firefox/Flock. The issue is this:

I am displaying a lightbox which is displaying a flash object, but the flash randomly will not render sometimes. The right-click menu for flash doesn't even show up. The code is there, I have viewed the source.


It may work for the first few page views, but usually it will stop working eventually.

Not sure the problem. I couldn't get it to happen. I have tried in multiple OS/Browser combos, with emphasis on FF.

Used FF1.0.7 to 1.5.x on Linux, Windows 98, me, 2k and XP, and IE 5, 6, and 7 on FC5 and Windows 98, me, 2k and XP.

Did reloads, refresh, and close reopens, it always showed for me.

It doesn't show for me when the window is not maximized. Use the auto maximize script and maybe it will work???


(BTW: Sorry if 'm a complete idiot. As I've mentioned before, I suck. It just happened to work for me if the window was maximized... :D )
