I think Bug 191003 and Bug 195918 (probably a duplicate of 191003) are also
possible dependencies of this bug.
Flashplayer 7 doesn't appear to work well in Mozilla 1.4,1.5,1.6, Netscape 7.1.
Some images just don't show up. Some flash doesn't work.

Would bug 228228 be an appropriate blocker for this?
