Mozilla don't load flash movie into a hidden layer and don't hide it when layer visibility is changed from visible to hidden. But Netscape 6.01 have a part of this bug.
Mozilla doesn't do NS4 style layers.
Summary: Loading flash into a hidden layer. → Loading flash into a hidden layer.
NS4-style layers are not being used so they're not the issue. I can confirm the described behavior on Win2K build 2001060703 (0.9.1). It looks like we are unable to change the visibility of <object>/<embed> elements via DOM. I believe the top .swf is actually being loaded, but its visibility is not being changed when its parent <div>'s visibility is changed, so we don't see it. That would make sense if the author had explicitly set the visibility of the <object>/<embed> element (visibility of child overrides visibility of parent) but that's not the case here. Maybe somewhere we are explicitly setting the visibility of plugin elements to the visibility of their parents (on initial load), and then that's not being updated when their parents' visibility is changed?
I know, what Mozilla does not support <layer> tag :)) http://shadow.viva-solutions.com/bug/ Please, visit this page to view a sample (DOM only).
