View Full Version : flash menu works in firefox but not ie6

23 Mar 2008, 09:34 PM
I have a flash menu embedded in an html file. The navigation works fine in firefoxand and ie7, but not in IE6. Any thoughts? I can give more details if need be, but I don't know where to start. It's not that complex of a flash menu. I'm using a basic actionscript:
on (release) {
It's Flash 8 using Actionsript 2.0 in the export settings. Thanks.

Just a follow up to my own problem.

I found the solution here: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=50c1cf38&sliceId=1

My code was a bit different from the example in the link above so I thought I'd share how it worked for my specific case.

added the bold code to my existing file and now it also works in ie6:

<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0'
'http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','http://website.com/swf/main','allowScriptAccess','always' ); //end AC code

They also suggest you can open your get url command into a "_blank" window to get it to work, which I tried and it does work, but that's a non-solution if you ask me. It doesn't do your visitors any good to navigate into new windows everytime they click a link. ANyway I hope this can help someone in the future.
