Netscape reads one Flash page but requires plugin for another.

My Netscape 8 browser has no problem pulling up pages that contain flash, like this one: http://www.bremer.com/Home/Home.aspx 

But on this site: http://www.re4a.com/website/index.html   I get a blank page asking me to download plugin.

I looked in the code and both sits require http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0 

So why does one require plugin and the other doesn't?

when tested in NS 8.1 both pages seam to work fine, have you thought about using the detect flash version options when publishing your movie? Also go to and install flash player 9 from macromedia and make sure your using the latest version, some times i had this problem too and i found that because i have flash mx, flash mx 2004, and flash 8 the flash players were conflicting with each other causing problems so i had to uninstall the flash players and just install version 9. I hope that helps ?

Thanks for your response.

>have you thought about using the detect flash version options when publishing your movie?

Could you please tell me more about this?

>so i had to uninstall the flash players and just install version 9.

Where do I uninstall the current flash? It's not under program files.

Hello rabidlemming, in your experience do all the browsers use the same flash installation? In the past, I've had to go through SEPARATE installations for each browser. At least separate ones for IE and Firefox. A moview would play fine in IE but if I installed Firefox, I had to go through flash installation again for that too. So that makes me think that there are different installations of flash on my machine. I ask because the link you sent me on uninstallation seems to imply that uninstaller goes after a single installation.

The way it works is their is one installed but when you install it checks to see what browsers you have, so say you only had ie it would only install the flash player for ie, but then later on if you installed firefox, well the installer has not been installed for the browser yet and that’s why you get the different installers. What you did is install all the browser you will ever use and then install flash player and it will install it self on all of them. It’s one installer and one program but can't install it self in browsers automatically after it's been installed and a new browser is then installed; unless their present before it's installed. As it works differently for each browser, I hope that helps. If you look at the webwasp method your see that detecting the flash player works for all browsers’
