Update #1: Tested on Opera on Apple and Pc
Update #2: Another bug seems to appear in Firefox 2 for the Mac: goto Flashbox directory, click on rel=”flashbox[test]” (you should see a mecha-robot with sword). If you scroll to the top of the page, FlashBox disappears and when you scroll down, you will see it again…
Update #3: Images of bug in Firefox 2 (Apple)   
Update #4: another bug, but for all browsers: if you type title=”bla bla bla, bla bla” (title with a komma) the images used in the won’t show.
I love feedback…. and the feedback on FlashBox was that it didn’t work correctly on Firefox 2 on the Mac.
This was a serious bug… and it took me some time to figure out where it was created.
You can follow my progress in the Flashbox directory. A gallery example: Badass Robots used in film.
Transformers Movie Optimus Prime
Robot B9 from Lost In Space
ABC Warrior from Judge Dredd
So the code is tested on:
- Firefox 188.8.131.52, Opera 9.10 and Safari 1.3.2 on Apple
- Firefox 184.108.40.206, Opera 9.10 and IE 7.0 on Pc
Sadly I have no access to a Intel Mac with Flock
(Please let me know if it works / or not in other browsers)
Download WordPress Plugin – Download FlashBox v1.1

I haven’t updated the link in wp-plugin.net, because I don’t want the same mistake (not testing on different browsers) twice
There seems to be some problem with
filter: alpha(opacity=60); -moz-opacity: 0.6; opacity: 0.6;
in the CSS in combination with transparant Flash.
I have fixed it with a background transparant .PNG which als works on other tested browsers.

Hey, That’s interesting!
So, going to have to make some edits there.
I haven’t read through the code yet. but clearly there’s some inheritance there. 🙂
