One example that I can remember now: http://www.sithsense.com/flash.htm
Try that site with Firefox for Linux.



That site has some crappy web page code on it, looks like they are incorrectly calculating the screensize in their javascript code.. if you just display the flash file and skip their lame javascript it works fine.

Try this link to bypass all the javascript crap and just run the flash part of that site.

Runs fine in my firefox on linux and its kinda cool at that, too bad whoever wrote the web page wasnt that good at it.

Seems like the old curse of the web: they've probably been testing that Flash site with IE only(?)

Thanks for the hint. I'll try that with Firefox. (Now I can challenge Darth Vader on Linux too... ;) Hmmm... It seems like the guy hasn't quite finished his sith and/or jedi lessions yet, as the chap couldn't guess my thoughts... ;) )

I've had difficulties with other Flash sites in the past too. But maybe they've got some similar code problems too, I dunno?
