User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 I have developed a Flash "linker" file which should locate a CD-ROM in a user's CD drive and open a file from that CD-ROM. It locates the user's CD drive letter by looping through "c" to "z", knowing it has found the CD-ROM when it locates a file called "test.swf" on the CD-ROM. This works fine in Mozilla 1.4.2, but does not work in Mozilla 1.7.8 and 1.7.10. These versions are not finding the test.swf file from the Action Script code within linker.swf It tries both loadMovie("file:///D:/a_folder_on_cd/test.swf",holder) and loadMovie("D:/a_folder_on_cd/test.swf",holder). Is the filepath for some reason different in the later versions of Mozilla? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.I upload my linker files to a website (e.g. http://www.deakin.edu.au/~alann/tnz_linker/linker.html). 2.I type this URL into Mozilla 1.7.8. 3.The linker.html file (containing my linker.swf file) opens and linker.swf tries to locate the test.swf file on the CD-ROM. Actual Results: Mozilla 1.7.8 fails to locate the test.swf file on the associated CD-ROM, (as if it cannot understand the Action Script code loadMovie("file:///D:/a_folder_on_cd/test.swf",holder), whereas this worked every time with Mozilla 1.4.2. Expected Results: Mozilla 1.7.8 and 1.7.10 should work the same as Mozilla 1.4.2 does. I can only assume from the problem I am having that Mozilla 1.7.8 and later do not understand a filepath in the same way as earlier versions. Either this or it cannot understand the Action Script "loadMovie()". If the former is the case, how should the file path be structured for Mozilla 1.7.8 to understand it? If the latter is the case, this is a serious fault.
