Details

I see this problem on windows commercial beta1 builds.

1. Install and launch the browser.
2. Go to teh url mentioned above.
3. Observe that the shockwave movie does not load even if the plugin is 
   installed.

I doubt that the javascript code used to detect the plugin is the reason for 
this. Many other websites are not working due to this problem as a lot of 
webpages use javascript to detect the browser/ plugins installed.

Shrir--JavaScript detection of plug-ins is now supposed to be checked in in 
recent dailies. Do we still see this problem? Nominating nsbeta2--JavaScript 
detection of plug-ins is supposed to be working for b2. If that's not the source 
of the trouble, then it's still nsbeta2 as Flash is on the b2 criteria.

cc: mgeller@macromedia.com. I recall a discussion in another bug where plugin 
vendors have not yet supported seamonkey. So the default page that launches for 
4.x or IE is not the same as that for ns6 (due to client sniffing problem?).
Miriam, could you pls put some light on this? It is only this page that launches 
with an image and does not load the plugin by default. But clicking on the link 
at the bottom of this page to view the flash enabled site works absolutely fine.
Thnx!
troy@macromedia.com: "This is just to do with our Detection process we use, we 
are currently not detecting N6 browsers." Apparently Mozilla's fine & 
the content is just not Moz/N6-aware. Resolving INVALID.
