User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.0.1) Gecko/20060214 Camino/1.0

When on the listings page there is a series of date tabs at the top of the window. When first loaded the current date is highlighted and the window reveals information for that time period. If one attempts to view information for another day, the tab selected is highlighted but the flash information fails to load.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to tvguide.com
2.Choose listing grid
3.Choose a date other than the current one

Actual Results:  
Flash content fails to load

Expected Results:  
New flash information regarding the date chosen should be displayed in the grid

This problem occurs with Camino 1.0 in both OS 10.2.8 and 10.3.9 It also occurs with Firefox, Mozilla, Opera and Netscape, and Safari (1.3.2) The page performs as expected with Internet Explorer and Safari 1.0.2  I had a chance today to verify that the problem exists with FireFox on the Windows platform. I am using Flash 8, but on the Windows machine it was Flash 7.

If this also happens on Fx/Win then we've got a nice Core bug on our hands here.

It'd be good to have a testcase before we kick it over there, though.

If it occurs in Safari and Opera, it's most likely not our bug but a bug in the site.
I'm still not convinced that this is anything other than a bug in the site, but since it does work in some other browsers and no Gecko ones, -> Core:Plugins for further triage.

This is interesting: In my Linux Seamonkey trunk build this site is working.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060319 SeaMonkey/1.5a

But it is not working in my windows Firefox trunk build (VC8 Express):
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060320 Firefox/1.6a1

My .mozconfigs:
Linux
# Options for 'configure' (same as command-line options).
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=/home/bes/mozilla/obj-debug
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=suite
ac_add_options --enable-application=suite

ac_add_options --enable-optimize=-O2
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2
ac_add_options --enable-xft

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
