    I've now realised it is not a pop-up issue.

    Even when opened in a normal browser window the stage is gray.

    This is similar to what I posted a week or so ago, but got no response.

    I have a Flash 'application' that is all on one frame and has about 2000 lines of AS 2 code. Works fine if it's all in Frame...
