Macintosh and Firefox problems - Macromedia Flash Player

I am designing a website for a client, I have programmed an automatic photo slideshow on the homepage and in the portraits and weddings gallery. I programmed the movie to load the images externally with the loadMovie command and then it resizes and positions the photos in the viewing area. It works fine on Windows IE but it does not work correctly on a Macintosh (IE) or Mozilla Firefox. On the MAC and Firefox it works intermittently. Please help. I posted it on my own website for testing purposes. The url is : [url]www.dccreative.org[/url]...

    Hi, djnilo,

    Wondershare Flash SlideShow Builder is a tool to create Flash
    slideshows from your photos. You may get it a try and see if it will do
    what you want.

    FLASH Player 8 does`n play the files as Flash Player 7

    We are programming files that are not reading as the same file with Flash Player 8.

    Change to Flash Player 7 again and you will see it works OK....... But, ....
    That is a big problem for every programmer.
    Do we have to tell users not to install Flash Player 8, because does not play
    the files as Flash Player 7 ???

    I'm having the same frustrating problem as you guys. I have found no solution,
    but will post it if I figure anything out. For now, I am having to send
    fscommands to the page and load the slides into a div instead. That's a real
    drag.

    Hey, I've found a great workaround. Drag a TextArea onto the stage - disable
    editing and enable html for it. Name it whatever you like - I called it
    'slideArea'. On the first frame of your movie, add these 2 lines to make the
    TextArea background color and borders transparent:

    _global.styles.TextArea.setStyle("disabledColor", "none");
    _global.styles.TextArea.setStyle("borderStyle", "none");

    Okay, then you just load the swf's or jpg's in dynamically with img tags - in
    my code, it looks similar to this:

    var mySlide = "http://myServer/slides/Slide" + _root.slides + ".swf";
    _level0.slideArea.text = "<img src='" + mySlide + "' width='" + _root.myWidth
    + "' height='" + _root.myHeight + "'>";

    It work perfectly for Mac or PC, IE or Firefox 1.0.7.
