Firefox vs. IE Flash Player - Macromedia Flash Player

Hello. I have created a fighting game (streetfighter like) that loads other .swfs for music and characters. The game functions perfectly in Internet Explorer using Flash Player 9. However, in Firefox it displays...but looses functionality (you can't duck and the opposing player AI get messed up). I thought it might be Flash Player 9 in Firefox, but I went back and got the archived version of Flash Player 7, and Flash Player 8 and it had the same problems. Funny thing is, I had an older version of Firefox on my laptop and the game functioned properly...but when I updated ...

    Default Firefox vs. IE Flash Player

    Hello.

    I have created a fighting game (streetfighter like) that loads other .swfs
    for music and characters. The game functions perfectly in Internet Explorer
    using Flash Player 9. However, in Firefox it displays...but looses
    functionality (you can't duck and the opposing player AI get messed up). I
    thought it might be Flash Player 9 in Firefox, but I went back and got the
    archived version of Flash Player 7, and Flash Player 8 and it had the same
    problems.

    Funny thing is, I had an older version of Firefox on my laptop and the game
    functioned properly...but when I updated Firefox, the game broke again.

    Does anybody know how/why the Flash Player functions differently in Firefox
    than it does in IE and what may be causing this? Has anybody else had similar
    problems?

    Thanks

    ok...can someone please help me out with this more, I think I have found more
    of the problem.

    I am loading specifically named .swfs. But when firefox saves the files to the
    cache, it saves the files as a random encrypted string. For instance "foo.swf"
    becomes "4ERRIE456"...when the flash player then tries to bring back in and
    reference the file...it cant find it, and has to reload it.

    Is there anyway to turn this encryption off in the about:config?
