    Flash problems in IE

    Hi folks

    I have 3 flash movies in my html. I use the fixit.js like;

    Code:
      <div id="flashbox">
          <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="565" height="232">
            <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
            <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
            <param name="movie" value="newsBox.swf" />
            <embed src="newsBox.swf" mce_src="newsBox.swf" wmode="transparent" quality="high"  width="565" height="232" align="bottom" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />      
    </object>
          <script type="text/javascript" src="fixit2.js"></script>
    and the actual js is;

    Code:
    theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
    for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++) {
    theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
    }
    Now what ive noticed in IE (both 6 & 7), when i initally load the page the 'coming up' flash box (div flashnews) works fine, however upon refresh it dows completly show. The other flash movies seem to work fine. (the pages works fine in Moz and Opera)

    Could this be a probelms with the fixit.js, or could there be a problem using the .png fix and forming some conflict.

    The page can be viewed here, all the css is still in the head.

    I hope someone can help me

    many thanks in advance

    EDIT: i just remove the fixit.j and the flash movie is shown upon refresh, however i need to click to activate

    Hello

    I have never used fixit.js, have you looked into swfObject?
