User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021126

A menu on the left side of the page should display, or at least it does in IE 6.
 In Mozilla it instead displays as a green filled area.  Right clicking on the
area suggests it might have to do with Flash, but I already have Flash Player 6
and Flash works perfectly on other sites for me.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/games/ageofmythology/greek_home.asp
2. Look at the Left
3. No menu is displayed

Actual Results:  
A green area is displayed.

Expected Results:  
Should display a menu.
Note that IE and Mozilla are being served different flash files there...
So this is kind of tech evangelism bug, isn't it ?
Yes.

The flash URL sent to NS browsers is a 404:
http://www.microsoft.com/games/ageofmythology/aom_nav_1.swf
Simple fix is to have the same URL as IE:
http://www.microsoft.com/games/ageofmythology/aom_nav_greek.swf

The problem also occurs with Opera 7.2b on Linux.

Cannot find any contact (e-mail, form).
