    Firefox browser??

    My flash site is set to display at full screen (percent; 100 by 100 in publish settings) and works fine on safari and any version of IE but on the firefox browser it is 1 inch by 1 inch?? Any ideas?

    TIA

    Same problem here. Is there a known solution or something like that ? Or do we have to ask Firefox to add something??

    Please help

    Found it. It's because Flash is publishing the page as XHTML. Take the doctype line out, or change it to a different doctype.

    Little problem though

    I inserted this code for opening a fullscreen Flash site, with the html page being locked 100%. It doesn't show up 100% on IE.. It works on Firefox though.. help..

    You don't need to remove the doctype - it's better to fix the errors in the page than rely on the browser applying error correction in order to display the page "correctly". All removing the doctype does is cause firefox to assume the page was badly coded (which it is - the default markup produced by flash is horrible) and use a rendering mode that corrects more errors. You can use some simple CSS to fix the page, so it renders correctly without needing the browser to fix things.

    See http://www.moddular.org/log/flash-vs-firefox for details.

    Try removing the div tag from around the movie (it shouldn't be needed)

    The use of the div causes the page to break because to get the movie to appear filling 100% of the height of the browser viewport every element that the movie is descended from must have its height set to 100%.

    So on this page the movie is descended from an html, body and div element but the 100% height is only set for html and body.
