Flash doesn't work in Firefox

Hi y’all,

I have recently looked at my site and noticed that all embedded flash element are not showing at all. Firstly I thought that was due new version of Wordpress so I was thinking about some easy plugin to start using with the SWF files. In the process it turned out the site looks JUST FINE and the animations are showing in Chrome, Opera, Safari and even IE. Except for Firefox. Today I have spent half a day searching for a solution, testing hundreds of plugins, changing the code on my own multiple times: all in vain.

The FF is showing nothing where the little boxes are supposed to be shown.

Is it something that can be fixed or should I immediately stop using firefox…?

Thank you for any advice.

Sometimes, I face with the same problem, and what i’ve done is re-install another version of flash. And i’m not sure it happens with just me or not, but my flash crashes a lot, despite the fact that I use both FF and Chrome.

Yes, often it ends up being a problem with the browser instead of a problem with the code.

Have you tried using different computers (presumed different browser config)?


thanks for your input.

I don’t have access to any other computer at the moment but I have used browsershots.org website to see results form various systems and browsers. All FF failed to display the flash on the site but it was okay with such exotic browsers I haven’t even heard of.

Well… bummer.

Thank you, guys :slight_smile:


Hello All,

I tried, as the last resort, the code that I was using couple of years ago and surprise, surprise it worked yet again:

If you have similar problems with your flash flicks, try to use this wrapping instead:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="link/to/your/swf/file" width="xx" height="xx">
  <param name="movie" value="link/to/your/swf/file">
  <param name="quality" value="high">
  <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
