At the top center of that page you can find a flash animation. It mostly works
well: Passing the mouse pointer over it changes the imgage shape, the pointer
changes to a hand and a text banner shows up

But when it's clicked nothing happens

I´m using Macromedia Shockwave Flash 5.0 r41. I wonder if the problem is there.

It works in iexplore. $&%$@!! MS

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  Nothing

Expected Results:  a web page

I´m not sure about the component I pick
It may be that some internal call to the mozilla engine it´s not working
or can also be a problem in the Netscape version of the Flash/Shockwave plugin

When you click on the eyes, the plugin trys to call Liveconnect but fails. These
two calls are observed:

The page also doesn't load for me at all in 4.x so I can't test it there. Does
it load for you? They use an EMBED tag. In fact, it has swLiveConnect=yes as an

Arun, I think this is yours. It's another i18n site that uses Flash scripting.

I think this may be the same problem I am running into at
<>. If I try
to login to the game or create (save) a new agent, nothing happens.

I am using Build ID: 2002010203 on Windows 2K.

Is anyone even working on this bug? There hasn't been any activity since the
16th of October.

I have just tested in linux redhat 7.1, Mozila 0.9.7 and the latest flash plugin
(Shockwave Flash 5.0 r47)

The links are still not running

I have the same problem. One is here: ''. If you
click on the "pie pieces" it should take you to a new URL. Works fine in IE and
 Netscape 4.x. In Mozilla nothing happens when you click. 

Many sites use Flash to move from URL to URL. It is important that this work.

Confirmed Macromedia Flash will not install under Mozilla, but will under IE on 
the same system.

E.g., try to install Flash at

The links do not work when selecting over the eyes but it does work if you
select the area on the right. Inside the plug-in they use FSCommand calls:
FSCommand:click trans

FSCommand:click bio_f

FSCommand:click bio_t

FSCommand:click bio_b

FSCommand:click tox

Tried Flash 7.0 r14 and 6.0 r79 on both Mozilla 1.5 and Firebird 0.7. Many sites
still have Flash links that lead nowhere, though the same plugin works for
Netscape 4.7.

I don't know if this is the same bug, but on, clicking on any of the images that are flash links in the Spotlight area right below the main image will not take you anywhere.  The text below them, however, will.  Also, the Stop/Start Timer circle doesn't work.

if you have a flash problem, first install a newer version from

if you still have problem, verify the version installed
and file a complete comment (versions, steps, etc) in one of the many other, much newer flash bugs

seems the original greenpeace testcase is gone(changed), so closing INVALID
