It looks like Bug 212798 is rearing it's ugly head again.  I can't get scripting
ability to work properly in the latest Flash plugin (7.0r25) using Slackware's
compile of Mozilla, nor a compile of Firefox 0.9.3.  The compiler used is GCC 3.3.4



Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile Mozilla w/GCC 3.3.4
2. Install Flash plugin
3. Go to website listed above
4. Click on ether "400" or "640" in the flash content area
Actual Results:  
Flash content does not resize, as programmed inside the flash movie.  After
clicking on "400" content shrinks to a bar, but plugin area resizes properly. 
In "640" content just dissapears to white.

Expected Results:  
Flash movie should of resized properly.

Bug 212798 was "fixed" by Macromedia upgrading its compiler.

I suspect there's not much we can do here short of them doing it again.  All
thank G++ for changing the ABI over and over.

Flash is compiled using what version of GCC?  3.2?

Isn't it possible for Macromedia or Mozilla to look for the apropriate ABI code,
or could a ABI translator be made to fix this?

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
