FlashBox v1.1: fixed visibility bug FF2 (Apple)

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) [1] [2] [3]

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
Roy Batty

So the code is tested on:

  • Firefox, Opera 9.10 and Safari 1.3.2 on Apple
  • Firefox, 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)

I haven’t updated the link in, 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!
Opera on the mac, pick’s up this line in the CSS and Javascript file as an error. Not in your plugin – ( sorry was not happy with the bugs ) but a derivative of lightbox, LightboxJS v2 by Safirul Alhedra.

So, going to have to make some edits there.

I haven’t read through the code yet. but clearly there’s some inheritance there. 🙂

Thanks Ian
