sounds like a path issue but it's hard to know unless you can post an example of the site or the part of the flash template that is loading the data

Flash CS3 comes with a javascript solution that stops the loading of the page. I advice you to try it out :)

Just publish the solution in CS3, which will generate a html-document and the corresponding .js-document :)

This is how the code is inserted:

<object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000' id='obj1' codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0' border='0' width='739' height='170'>
	<param name='movie' value='flash/$page.swf'>
	<param name='quality' value='High'>
	<embed src='flash/$page.swf' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' name='obj1' width='739' height='170' quality='High' wmode='transparent'>
<script src="thecode.js"></script>
objects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < objects.length; i++)
objects[i].outerHTML = objects[i].outerHTML;

2 questions::

Are you only having the problem in firefox or does the problem happen only in IE?

What is the purpose of your javascript loop

objects = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
for (var i = 0; i < objects.length; i++)
objects[i].outerHTML = objects[i].outerHTML;

Sounds like you are using IE right?  what happens when you view the page in Firefox or another browser?  the reason i ask is the "outerHTML" is a microsoft only property and may not be recognised on other browsers

for the "Click to Activate" issue follow the directions in these links:

This is to add to what Samuel has stated whereby Adobe has published javascript templates to overcome the issue: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/activecontent/articles/devletter.html

using the SWFObject to achieve the same result: http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/
