I'm wondering if this is just something in Safari because it's not happening in Firefox at least on the Mac. I have a client who wants a navbar with background color the same as the background color of the site itself. No problem there. Made a simple .swf with the background color set in the properties. So I upload it and when I go to this page:

The movie quickly starts out white and then the background color comes in. Is this a Safari bug? Would it work better if I had created a graphic or movie clip object that fit the stage with the same background color or would the white flash still occur?
