Default Why a MovieClip disapears randomly in FireFox and Chrome from an AS3 flash web app?

Hi everybody,

I'm not sure it's the good section to post this thread but I take a chance.

The AS3 flash web application is preloaded by a AS3 flash preloader.

When I run the application on an HTML web page with Firefox or Chrome, the MovieClip that should be always displayed at the foreground to show the progression, disappears, reappears, disappears partialy and randomly. With Internet Explorer, it's work fine. Nothing in the application can cause that or mask/hide the MovieClip. I try this on 3 computers.

I realy don't understand what's happen there.

Firefox 10.0.2
Chrome 17.0.963.79 m
Flash Player
Internet Explorer

I think something in the HTML goes wrong but I can't find it.

That's the way I embed it :
<html lang="en" xml:lang="en">
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
        <style type="text/css" media="screen">
        html, body { height:100%; background-color: #ffffff;}
        body { margin:0; padding:0; overflow:auto;}
        #flashContent { width:100%; height:100%; }
        <div id="flashContent" align="center">
            <object data="loader.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="800" width="1200">
                <param name="movie" value="loader.swf" />
                <param name="quality" value="best" />
                <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
                <param name="play" value="true" />
                <param name="loop" value="true" />
                <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
                <param name="menu" value="false" />
                <param name="devicefont" value="false" />
                <param name="salign" value="" />
                <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
                <p>Alternate content goes here</p>
Thank you for your future help.

PS: English is not my native language. So, if you don't understand this, I will try to explain better.

Hopefully that is not the actual HTML... because for starters, there is no DOCTYPE declaration:
But if it's a preloader problem, then it's most likely an error in the Flash preloader itself.
Please post a link to the actual page so we can test and diagnose for ourselves.
Best wishes,

I finaly find it. It was not an HTML issue like I trusted.

In the AS3 flash app, I created 2 functions, the first to init after the app is loaded to start the sounds and images loading, the second to start the app when all sounds and images are loaded. But, like a noob, I put the interface display function in both funtions. When I tested it directly in flash, it's worked fine, but with a web browser like Firefox and Chrome, the display issue happen. When I tested it with Internet Explorer, it's worked fine too. So, I started to think it was an HTML issue.

So, I just remove the interface display function from the start function an now it's realy work fine.

Thank you for your help and I will try to be smarter next time.
