    Unhappy Pages with Flash flicker/blink in Firefox 2

    Hi Guys,
    I've posted my question in CSS sectionhttp://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=482848 and finding(being told) that the problem is not with my css codes.

    This is the project I'm working on - http://www.virtuoso.com.my/emt/

    My problem is that, whenever FF2 loads a new page with flash, the page flickers/blinks once before it's loaded, but this doesn't happen to IE6 where common elements such as header & footer stay 'still'.

    For example, from 'clients' section to 'careers', you'll experience a 'blink' in the transition.

    The 'blink' doesn't happen when loading pages without flash such as 'privacy policy' & 'terms & conditions'.

    Helps much appreciated, thanks!

    It's barely noticable, but I'm on an 8mb/sec connection. I'm really not sure why it would do that, but maybe preloading the flash would help?
    Life would be so much easier if we
    could just look at the source code.

    Do you mean create preloader in flash? or Preload flash in html?

    I mean using Javascript to preload the .swf file. I'm pretty sure it's possible, but I'm not adept at JavaScript. I wish I could be of more help.

    I'm using Firefox and I don't notice any flashing - even though the pages take a while to load in some cases.
