    Internet Explorer Flash Plugin problems?

    Hi everyone - hope someone can help.
    I have Firefox set as my default browser - when I develop in HTML I naturally test in different browsers but when I work in Flash, I usually just test in Firefox. Before launching a site, I usually do a cursory test in IE, Netscape & Opera and have never experienced any cross-browser problems in Flash - Until now!!
    I have an actionscript heavy flash site that uses a system of loading external .swfs into scrollpane components - while it all works fine in Firefox, in Internet Explorer it runs like a dog. My cursor crawls when I move the mouse and it seems to lock up momentarily when loading external .swfs.
    When these locks occur, a couple of second pass before the external content loads, when it does the scrollpane develops a bug and the content appears above and below the components boundaries - The scrollbar works fine so I can do a quick fix and ad my own mask to repair the problem but I hate these kinds of solutions - it doesn't solve the performance problems either.
    I've posted this on the actionscript forum too.
    Any ideas?

    PLEASE HELP! The problem that I am having is with these floating text scroll bars which were created on a Mac using Flash MX.

    I.E. Please go to www.ericmantel.com - click on "ENTER" click on "ABOUT ERIC" then click on "Endorsements" and you'll see exactly what I am talking about!

    They need to be expanded to fit for more text if needed. The text area is too small. They can only fit a certain amount of text in the text area before it gets chopped off. I figured out on how to expand the text inside the scroll area but the text scroll bar itself doesn't stay within the scroll arrows of the scroll bar, it goes beyond. What I need to be able to do is, expand the text so the scroll bar stays within the arrows of the scroll bar. It needs to expand to the amount of text being typed inside.

    SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!! I have been trying to get this problem fixed for over a year now and no one wants to help me!
