Topic: Black bar infront of slide show (Firefox3)

Please take a look at this page http://www.mediaimagingsolutions.com/page13.htm

Scrolling reveals a black bar infront of the slide show which only happens when using Firefox 3. Any ideas please?


Re: Black bar infront of slide show (Firefox3)

Hi Benno.

I'm not seeing it with FF3 here, but it looks from your HTML source code that you have a hidden DIV in that page.  I'm assuming that the hidden DIV, which I think is your footer, is showing over the SWF.

Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing exactly?

I'd like to try adding a variable to your embed/object code.  I've highlighted the places where the code differs from the code you have in place now.

Can you try this code please?

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="548" id="soundslider">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.mediaimagingsolutions.com/publish_to_web/soundslider.swf?size=2&format=xml" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.mediaimagingsolutions.com/publish_to_web/soundslider.swf?size=2&format=xml" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" width="600" height="548" wmode="transparent" menu="false" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed></object>

Thanks for your help on this. I had the same problem on the home page as well and had to remove the slide show. There is still something happening underneath the image though - like a interverence. Can you check the home page please www.mediaimagingsolutions.com

I just tried your suggestion at it works! Thanks for that. Should I do that for all the pages then?

Cool, glad that worked.

Yes ... it's probably easier to modify the slide show's SWF embed code than try to alter the hidden footer DIV.
