the animation doesn't disappear on my end...are you talking about the animation just stopping and not looping back through? If that's the case you need to add a gotoAndPlay (1); on the last frame of the animation to get it to loop back to the first frame.

Is still not looping

      //Movieclip GotoAndPlay Behavior
      this.gotoAndPlay("1");
      //End Behavior

Since I don't have your FLA I can't say for sure but if you add gotoAndPlay(1); to the last frame in your animation it will loop...but it needs to be inside the actual animation clip. You don't need the "this" before it.

What browser is giving you trouble? Works in every browser I have....if you're using internet explorer there may be something wrong with  your security settings.

Go to Tools > internet options > security tab > reset zones to default level > advanced tab > restore advanced settings

If that doesn't work, try the reset button under the advanced tab.

Maybe you just need to re-install the flash player for your browser. Works fine in IE7 for me.

If you go to add/remove programs do you see Internet Explorer Enhanced Security settings installed? If so, uninstall it...It's working perfectly on several machines for me. This is some sort of security setting or disablement of active-x in your browser.
