Using swf files in the Horizontal JavaScript Accordion

Hi!

I'm having problems using swf files in the Horizontal JavaScript Accordion explained in this tutorial - http://www.leigeber.com/2008/05/horizontal-javascript-accordion-menu/

When I replace one of the jpgs with a swf the accordion works fine in IE and Google Chrome but there are problems in Firefox. In Firefox the swf file is the only section (li) that shows up and the graphic does not become hidden when it slides to the right. When I take the size parameters off of the code embedding the swf, the accordion works and all of the sections show but that swf file is a thumbnail and doesn't take up the whole area.

I'm sorry if I didn't explain this well and thanks for any help!

Thank you very much for helping so quickly. Adding wmode="opaque" made it work in Firefox..

Thanks again!

Oh yea.. and have a happy new year!

Try setting wmode="opaque" on the flash object.

Here you go! I was just starting it and trying to sure I could do what I want (I wanted to have different links inside each section)

The purple section is the swf and it works fine in IE and Google Chrome. When I open the page in Firefox, it only shows the 1.jpg and 2_flash.swf over it and the swf doesnt become hidden when it moves to the right.

Thanks for your help and I'm sorry I don't know how to explain it better.
