I am having a problem with flash in firefox 7. I am not sure this is the right forum, but someone can move it if they see fit. Anyway, say I write some embed code like this:

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    width="800" height="600"
    <param name="movie"
    value="Adv1.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
    <embed src="Adv1.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"
    width="800" height="600"
    name="mymoviename" align="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"

If I have a folder with this file and a file Adv1.swf, when I open the html in firefox, the flash shows. However, when these two files (index.html and Adv1.swf) are uploaded to a server, it does not work in firefox, but does in opera and IE. Please help me. I have been looking for a solution for about 8 hours.

It's the f***** name. I just renamed the file AdvOne instead of Adv1 and it works. WOW! If that's a bug in firefox, then I am going to kill them.

Wow this is really weird. I can even name the file Xyz1, but not Adv1. I am really confused as to why it doesn't work with Adv in the name. Anyone know?

You should have posted this in the "Web Development > Web Design > HTML/CSS" Forum. Also Mark as Solved.
