At work I am forced by corporate policy to use IE6.
Obviously this is not so good so I use FF for most of my browsing.
However there is a problem once I have installed the Flash plug-in - FF locks up when trying to load Flash media.
Looking at the status bar at the time of the lock up it appears this happens when the browser tries to get cross domain data.
The Flash Active X plug-in in IE does not suffer this issue.
I have tried it in a brand new profile in FF with Flash as the only plug in and it locks up.
We have 2 different proxy servers and both exhibit the same problem.
I have also tried Chrome and Safari and both lock up with the plug-in installed.
So, has anyone else had this problem and solved it?
Or, is there any way to disable cross domain data access in the flash plug-in?
Or, is there any way to disable the "This site needs an additional plug-in" ribbon which appears when the plug-in is not installed.
