Hi I have had to create a webpage that contains flash elements that are stacked on top of each other in div tags with div tags containing html code between and more flash at either side.

The problem I have is that every time the browser window is resized, the flash elements that are taller than wider, will resize. It appears to be happening on a per pixel basis.

this only occurs in explorer 9, firefox and chrome are fine.

I have tried fixing all the div tag heights and widths with css, also setting border to none and margins and padding to zero.

Anyone any ideas? I can post a url to demonstrate this in action

I'm sure everyone here is going to hit you with the same suggestion right off the bat: Stop using IE. Try this with another browser such as Firefox or chrome. Also try updating to the latest version of flash.

Some people do not have the option of using another browser, or updating IE. The company I work for are still using IE9 as there is problems with 3rd party web apps! (Don't get me started...)


A URL would be helpful if you are still having this problem :)

Actually we try very hard to remove those sort of replies since they do not address the issue. My interpretation of replies such as those is that they tend to come from individuals with specific experience sets that are not as full as others. Professional organizations expect that their developers can cope with browser incompatibilities. Telling all of your customers that they can only view a site in Firefox or Chrome does not fit with that image, I think.


I would also venture to guess since this post is almost two years old, the OP has probably solved their problem. :)
