Not really sure what happened but I've got 2 different PC not running my flex app.
The app is the simplest one (just display Alert on initialization). Therefore on some of the browsers the flex app does not run init() function.
What is strage if I check in JavaScript for the object - it does exists (returns [object HTMLObjectElement] with the proper id. So it is there, loaded but did not run init() ... what am I missing?

1st PC:  Win7 64bit
works: Opera 10.61 (flash: 10.1.82.76)
works: FF 3.6.8 (flash: 10.1.82.76)
doesn't work: IE 8 (flash:  (flash: 10.1.82.76)
doesn't work: Chrome 5.0.375.127 (flash: 10.1.82.76)

2nd PC: Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
works: Chrome 6.0.472.36 beta (flash 10.0.r32)
works: Opera 10.61 (flash: 10.1.82.76)
doesn't work: FF 3.6.8 (flash: 10.0.32.18)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" backgroundAlpha="0" initialize="init()">
<mx:Script>
  <![CDATA[
    import mx.controls.Alert;
    public function init():void { 
      Alert.show("1");
    }
</mx:Script>
</mx:Application>

thanks andreMariano, your comment was useful for other part of my app but the issue was bit different - caching. Some browser no matter what I tell them, they still cache the SWF (seems to be most issue with Chrome) so I ended up adding random file name: "file.swf?rand=rand()" maybe it is a problem of creating SWF with SWFObject or browser itself ...
