hi , i have a very strange problem. Right now the website im working on runs smoothly on all the version of firefox. However if i run it on any other browser ( IE 7 , Chrome ,Opera ), the flash banner which has all the navigation buttons , becomes small .. im attaching the html code which i hav inserted for it :

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="766" height="375">
<param name="movie" value="flash/header_v7.swf?button=2">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="menu" value="false">
<!--[if !IE]> <-->
<object data="flash/header_v7.swf?button=2"
width="766" height="220" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="menu" value="false">
<param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
</object>

Hi, it appears that you have predefined the height of the IE version (width="766" height="220") to be smaller than the default (see width="766" height="375"). I'd try adjusting the height definition for IE to 375. For example:


<!--[if !IE]> <-->
<object data="flash/header_v7.swf?button=2"
width="766" height="375" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="menu" value="false">
<param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
</object>

Let me know if that solves the problem. If not, I have other ideas of what could be causing the differential.

Hi Viatech, did adjusting the height definition for IE in your code resolve your problem?

Super, great to hear that it solved your issue! Isn't it amazing that one tiny variable like that throw off a layout? Now you know what to look for if it happens again. If you come across any other issues, don't hesitate to post a new thread.
