I could not duplicate this issue with a trunk build from 20020930 on winXP. What browser do you have set as your default browser?
This happens on a Win98 machine with IE, NS7 and Mozilla installed. The profile I use is only used with Mozilla, not NS7. Recently upgraded IE to version 6 and installed the script debugger for IE (although the problem may have been occurring before then). A clean Mozilla profile did not solve the problem. I'll try on a different machine (although it's Win2K) and see if I can reproduce this. Is there any way that the flash plugin could think that IE should be used even if the plugin was currently operating in Mozilla?
Oh yeah, that could happen quite easily. You can check to see if the Mozilla browser or NSCP browser is the default by going to Edit|Preferences|Navigator and see if the setting has been made. If it is not, try setting that option and see if this still happens. I suspect that you did not have this set.
Turns out I did not have Mozilla set as my default browser. Since it's my wife's machine and she prefers NS7, Mozilla never becomes the default. However, just in case, I made Mozilla the default via the button in Navigator Preferences. Restarted just to be sure everything was copacetic. Still got the same behavior at the above URL. Was unable to reproduce this with a perfectly clean Mozilla install on a Win2K machine. Perhaps I'll throw NS7 into the mix on that box to see if it coughs something up.
oh, I bet I know what it is -- I suspect the flash plug-in in looking for the first instance in the registry that equals Netscape and on your wifes system that happens to be 4.x. If you install 4.x on your system and you get the same behavior, then I would suspect that that is the issue. Shrir: can you help verify this on one of the test machines?
